These little wraps pack a TON in a little package!  They are a super food on steroids; jammed packed with vitamins, minerals and healthy fats, but super low in calories and carbs.  Oh, and did I mention they are DELICIOUS??

These are one of my go-to lunches (especially when I am doing my Real Food Cleanse). They are simple + fun to make, so try making them with your kiddos or you an make ahead for yourself and pack for lunch!

    I love lettuce wraps but have not tried making them with collard greens. I am always looking for the perfect green to use for the wrap. Some greens are too thin and break too easily, some are too small, some are the wrong shape, etc. I am excited to use the collard greens!
