Wrapping Up Holiday Leftovers

TurnkeyWrapsA delicious Turkey and Cranberry Wrap is this week’s Health-e-Recipe – a simple way to use up leftovers in a jiffy.

Wraps are portable, a snap to make and they can be healthy, too. Just stuff a whole-wheat, low-fat tortilla with lots of veggies: bell pepper strips, baby spinach leaves, chopped onions or scallions, shredded carrots and red cabbage.

Keep the dressing and cheese low-fat, use an ounce or two of some lean protein such as tuna or salmon, skinless poultry or lean red meat – and you’ll never see sandwiches the same way again.
