Hummus Salad Chard Wraps

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Using vegetables instead of highly processed high-carb flour-based wraps and breads is a light, nutrient-dense alternative, that is also light on your weight, health and stomach. They can also be a great substitute for burger buns, burritos, tacos or anything else you can think of. You can use Swiss chard, rainbow chard, collard leaves, romaine or iceberg lettuce to enjoy as a wrap. You can use any salad ingredients, dips, protein of choice and get creative. These wraps can be eaten as a light meal or as a snack to enjoy!
