You’re craving that diner classic: a big, juicy BLT sandwich. But, alas, you’re watching your carbs, and you know that two slices of bread would throw off your diet for several days. Get your bacon, lettuce and tomato fix with a lower-carb alternative: a BLT wrap! These wraps use low-carb tortillas so you can enjoy your favorite sandwich without the guilt.
Easy Low-Carb BLT Wrap
My husband has laughed at me on a couple of occasions when we’ve gone to a diner or restaurant that I’m unfamiliar with, and I choose the BLT. Why? Well, it’s hard to mess up bacon. As long as it’s crispy, I can’t say that I’ve ever had a bad piece of bacon or a bad BLT. It’s a safe choice.
But on a low carb eating plan, bread can use up way too many of your daily carbs. The bread our son eats has about 20 carbs per two slices… Can you believe it? The La Banderita wraps (affiliate) have been such a lifesaver for us at only 5 net carbs per serving.
That’s what we used for these positively mouthwatering BLT wraps. Make them. Eat them. Love them. Repeat as necessary.
