These easy Spinach Wraps use Mission Carb Balance Tortillas. They’re a quick, healthy breakfast that’s low in carbs and high on flavor!
When I started eating keto, if you’d told me I could eat these Egg & Spinach Wraps for breakfast every day, it would have been a much easier transition for me.
It’s been just over two months since Rob and I started eating keto. To say that it’s the most enjoyable way of eating we’ve ever tried is an understatement. It has truly been almost effortless. Sure, I’ve had my moments of wanting something I can’t have, but there are so many things you CAN enjoy and by focusing on that, it’s been fairly easy to get through.
Are spinach wraps good for you?
Spinach wraps have just over 200 calories, 4 grams of fiber, 15 grams of protein and just 8 grams net carbs. They’re filling without that heavy, “I just ate a big breakfast” feeling. I always feel energized after eating one!
If you’re on the keto diet, all foods are allowed except for carbs and sugar. Which sounds like you’d be cutting out almost everything, but it’s easier than it sounds.
All bread has to go unless it’s made specifically for the low-carb diet. Soda and any drinks with sugar are also out. I’ve found that if I focus on eating fresh greens, proteins and healthy fats I have the most success. And sweets are still possible by simply switching sugar with erythritol (like I did in this recipe for Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies).
The one thing that’s been hardest for me? Bread and tortillas. Especially tortillas! We go out for Mexican food often so having to avoid enchiladas, tacos, etc. makes it tough since those are some of my favorite foods.
Sometimes you just need a tortilla wrapped around hot, cheesy fillings. For someone who also cooks all the time, having to stop buying tortillas altogether has been hard. But I found a great alternative!
I recently tried Mission Carb Balance Tortillas. I was skeptical that I would enjoy them enough to put them on permanent repeat, but we absolutely LOVE them!
The first thing I made were these Spinach Wraps with Mission Low Carb Tortillas. I couldn’t even tell there were carbs missing! The past four days straight, everyone has asked for them for breakfast. So I just keep making them.
Are Mission Carb Balance tortillas really low carb?
Mission Carb Balance tortillas and wraps have anywhere from 3 to 5 grams of carbs in each tortilla, making them a great choice for low-carb and Keto diets.
My method for making these Egg & Spinach Wraps is to make a batch then wrap each one in parchment so we can all grab them on our way out the door. My non-keto eating girls love them, too, so I make enough for everyone. On mornings that we’re not rushing, I’ll use the same ingredients but just skip the wrapping process.
Mission Carb Balance Tortillas have really helped us live a low-carb lifestyle with even less effort. Keto isn’t difficult if you put your mind to it, but knowing that we no longer have to miss out on our favorite foods is incredible!
I came across this video for BLT tacos using the Carb Balance whole wheat tortillas – don’t they look easy and amazing? My plan is to make these for lunches this week.
Enchiladas, tacos, even homemade tortilla chips are so simple using Mission Low Carb Wraps! Chips have been big for me since I love to make keto-friendly dips but I never have chips for them. One low-carb tortilla will make a lot of chips…perfect for me. If you want to pick some up, check out where to buy them here.
The picture above is from our breakfast this morning. I made some that I didn’t wrap for the girls and another two that I wrapped up for Rob to take to work. And, of course, a couple for me!
- 4 Mission® Carb Balance Whole Wheat tortillas
- 6 large eggs, scrambled
- 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves, chopped
- 8 cherry tomatoes, sliced
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1 green onion, sliced
- Char the tortilla slightly if desired (I use my gas stove). Place each tortilla on a sheet of parchment paper a few inches larger than the tortilla on all sides.
- Divide the remaining ingredients between the tortillas. Wrap up each tortilla tightly, then wrap each spinach scramble wrap in the parchment paper.
- Alternatively, you can enjoy the wraps in the shape of tacos if you're not taking them on-the-go.
