This is so delicious – and to think, there is no bread or gluten in sight! So many people get that gluten and generally lots of bread is likely not great for their wellness and weight-control, but finding viable alternatives can be a challenged, which ultimately leads to non-compliance or resistance to the idea. In this perfect post-workout / lunch dish, you get to have your eggs and avocado (great sources of good fats and proteins) without feeling the plate is missing bread. The Sweet Potato wraps are a solid alternative, and the combination of butter, turmeric, beetroot, pesto and sauerkraut delivers a huge punch of mouth-watering flavour. Plus all these foods are SOOOO GOOD for you. This is a huge wrap though, so consider dropping to two eggs and one wrap, saving you 235 calories.
