This Is The Best Possible Way To Eat Your Greens

In the constant battle to eat your greens, these wraps make waging war a lot less necessary. Leave the processed and refined bread products at the store and opt for nutrient-rich collard greens to up your lunch crunch game. Loaded with vegetables, plant-based protein, and tons of fiber, these wraps will fend off any post-lunch slumps that you may typically get from bread and deli meats. 

These wraps are durable, hearty, and great to pack and eat on the go. Make a few in advance and grab one in place of your normal run-of-the-mill sandwich, or take half as a snack. Make sure to secure them with a toothpick to prevent any filling from shifting during transit.

What makes this wrap so super-charged? Swapping collard greens for bread gives you a mega dose of nutrients. Collards are in the cruciferous family, a group of vegetables — also including Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and kale — known for their cancer-preventing ability, as well as their anti-inflammatory and detoxifying properties. Also an excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K, the greens provide a plant-based source of calcium and iron (great for vegans) and are fully loaded with fiber. Vegan protein is garnered from the chickpeas, quinoa, and hemp seeds, making this little parcel perfectly balanced. After wrapping it up, you'll never want to settle for a basic sandwich again.
