Tuna salad sandwiches have always been my favorite, but traditional tuna salad is high in calories from the mayo. This wrap is 240 scrumptious wholesome calories.
If you are not a tuna fan, you can easily use canned chicken instead of tuna. You can change this recipe up to include what you like in a tuna salad. I am a plain Jane when it comes to my tuna salad. I like dill pickles, lettuce, and mayo. However I do not use traditional store bought mayo. I make my own out of Greek yogurt. It tastes the same to me and has 15 calories per serving compared to 90 per serving of regular mayo. I have included the recipe for my Greek yogurt mayo below. I make up a tub of it and use it in all the recipes that call for mayo. It is a huge calorie saver and very tasty! Yes I have tried veganaise and all the other low calorie stuff out there, and I don't care for it.
Now on to the wraps. I use a gluten-free wrap that has flax in it. It is 100 calories per wrap and they are high in protein and fiber. I have a local organic stand here that sells them. If you don't have access to them, then you can go to trader joes, they have two different gluten-free wraps. Or you can make your own using this recipe: gluten free wraps.
