Tuna Wraps on yummy Lavash Bread!

I think I’m in love with Joseph’s Lavash Bread. This way yummy flatbread just rocks my face off. It’s low-cal at only 50 calories per serving, packs a whopping 5 grams of protein and offers a good dose of Omega 3. And it’s reasonably priced at only $1.88.

You want to know the real reason I love this stuff? It’s because I get to feel all fancy for saying, “I’m having a tuna wrap on Lavash bread for lunch” … Ooooh! See? Totally fancy.

To assemble your fancy-schmancy tuna wrap you’ll need:

  • Great Value (or some other inexpensive store brand) Tuna Fish, in a can, packed with water
  • Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil – sure, it’s pricier than your regular mayo. But the taste is great and the calories are low. Personally, this broke chick feels it’s worth the few extra pennies. Feel free to substitute with the low-cal mayo of your choice.
  • Dill pickle relish
  • Lettuce
  • Joseph’s Lavash Bread

Now, let’s get wrapping:

First, get out your Joseph’s Lavash Bread. I keep mine in the fridge. You don’t have to, it’s just where I keep mine – I think it’s because it has protein. In my warped little mind it needs to be kept in the fridge. Anway, the lavash bread comes in big sheets that you’ll need to cut in half to get one serving. If you’re super hungry just have two servings. It’s only 50 calories, people!

Cut the lavash bread in half – store the other half in the handy resealable bag. Place the half you’re using on your plate and smear with one tablespoon of Kraft Olive Oil Mayonnaise. Tear approximately one half cup of lettuce and place this on the lavash smeared with mayonaise. Open up your can of tuna fish, drain it and then dump this on the lettuce. I like to dump my tuna fish in a kind of line down the middle. We want our fancy-schmancy wrap to be pretty, right? So, easy with the dumping.

Add a teaspoon or more, according to your tastes, of the pickle relish on the tuna fish. Now roll your lavash bread up and Voilà! You have a nice little wrap for approximately 200 calories!

Please note: I’m not a nutrionist. I’m not a doctor – heck, I’m barely a good cook. My calorie estimates are exactly that. Estimates. I read the labels and add things up in my little blonde head.

UPDATE:

When I started this blog in 2010, I had three children and a few pounds to lose.

Then I had THREE MORE CHILDREN. And I still have a few pounds to lose. It’s funny how life throws curve-balls at our curves.

I’d love for you to visit us at www.coersfamily.com to see how we’re managing our six children and our goals for a healthier lifestyle.
