High Protein Wrap (Gluten-Free)

This is an easy wrap to make. This recipe can be doubled, with success. It can be used for a sandwich as well. This wrap is also gluten-free. The half cup of cottage cheese contains 15 grams of protein, and one egg contains 6 grams of protein, for a total of 21 grams of protein. When you add sandwich fillings such as meat, egg salad, or cheese, you will be increasing the protein content. Don’t forget you can add veggies like lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers. Cottage cheese is a natural source of vitamin B12, and a half cup has 29 percent of your daily needs. Cottage cheese also contains selenium, riboflavin, phosphorus, folate, and calcium. The protein in cottage cheese is casein, which is slowly absorbed, making it ideal for building muscle and boosting metabolism. Both cottage cheese and eggs create feelings of fullness, which helps to reduce constant snacking.

Eggs are an excellent source of protein and contain all the essential amino acids. Essential amino acids are protein components that the body needs and can not make. Eggs contain many nutrients such as choline, selenium, biotin, vitamin B12, Vitamin B2, molybdenum, iodine, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, phosphorus, and pantothenic acid. An egg almost reads like the back of a vitamin bottle. Eggs do contain dietary cholesterol, which for most people means that your body just makes less cholesterol internally. Cholesterol is needed and used by the body for the proper working of many hormones.

Parsley is more than a pretty garnish on your food, it is also a super healthy green packed with lots of antioxidants. Parsley contains 574 per cent of our vitamin K, which helps to strengthen our bones and protect the brain. Parsley contains 3 times the vitamin C of oranges, and 47 percent of our daily vitamin A, known for eye health. Parsley contains twice as much iron as spinach, and significant folate.
