Recently, I began following Kelly at Eatthegains.com and I loved looking at her recipes. She was the inspiration I had been missing! I seriously could look through her recipes all day!
One theme I saw that caught my interest was her collard wrap recipes. She had multiple versions, even a breakfast one! Naturally, I had to try it! i love collard greens, but I have never eaten a raw one, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but it was quite tasty. In fact, it served as a perfect wrap to hold all the goodies. I have been digging mediterranean flavors recently, so I opted to create my own flavor profile using her (Kelly) idea of using the leaf as the wrap!
I encourage you to try these if you are doing low carb or just as a high protein afternoon snack!
Check it out!
