Chicken Bacon Club Wrap

I was at Walmart today and I found these Joseph's Low Carb Lavash Wraps. Since starting low carb in May of this year I have never had any kind of low carb wrap, tortilla, or bread. I've seen these wraps at Netrition.com where I frequently shop for low carb goodies, but i've never ordered them before. The nutrition stats are great. One serving is half of a giant wrap. Each serving has 7 carbs minus 3 fiber for a net carb of 4. I was very surprised at how good these wraps tasted. I loved the texture, taste, and even the way they look.

They also had Joseph's low carb pita bread but I didn't get any today. The package of lavash bread was $2.12 for 4 huge wraps which give you 8 servings.  This is the way I used them:


1 serving (1/2) Joseph's Low Carb Lavash Bread
1/2 leftover boneless chicken breast, cut in strips
1 strip of bacon, cooked and cut in three pieces
1 slice american cheese
1 ring of bell pepper, cut in strips
1/8 of an avocado
2 large leaves of iceberg lettuce
2 slices tomato
4 slices cucumber
1 thin ring of onion
1 tbsp ranch dressing


1. I lightly toasted the wrap in a pan, but it would also be great room temperature.
2. Spread the ranch dressing on the wrap.
3. Add the cheese, chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomato, avocado, bell pepper, onion and cucumber.
4. Roll the wrap and slice diagonally in two.

There are many variations you could do with these wraps.  Rueben wrap, chicken Caesar wrap, supreme pizza wrap, buffalo chicken wrap and more!

This huge, extra stuffed wrap has total net carbs of 8.65. It was definitely worth it because it had alot of veggies, protein, and fiber. Yummy!


  1. That looks great! I haven't used any breads, wraps, etc. either. I've kind of been afraid it would cause me to crave carbs. please post if you have anything like that happen to you. good luck!

  2. Hi Bein_me!

    That's the exact same reason I haven't tried them before. So far today I haven't felt anything different. So hopefuly they're something I can incorporate into my WOE occasionally.
    Thanks for stopping by!!!

  3. Tried another low carb wrap several months ago, it also contained some wheat flour, and regretted it. Not due to cravings, more like too many trips to the "john"! Not fun. Must've been the addition of gluten to my system after 2 years of low-carbing?

  4. Hi Squirrel!

    It could definitely have been that you are or have become sensitive to gluten.
    I actually felt pretty good, just the same way as when I eat say, wings or steak. I welcome it as a new addition and variation on my plan. It is also important to have a new food once or twice a week only when first introducing it to see how your body will react.

    Sorry the wraps didn't work for you!

    Thanks for visiting!

  5. You can also make crackers out of these wraps. I just brush with olive oil, lightly salt,cut into any shape and toast in oven until lightly browned and as crisp as you like. Oven 425. Watch carefully so as not to burn.

  6. That's a great idea! I hadn't thought about that. I might try it out soon with a bacon swiss dip i've been wanting to make.
