Chicken Ceaser Wraps

.. what do you think about them? If I am ordering lunch at work, I feel better getting one then a chicken finger sub, or meatball or anything fried- also feel better bc of no mayo, and no cheese- although I know the ceaser dressing must be accounted for. Is it really a healthier choice or am I just trying to tell myself it is?!

You already picked out the only unhealthy thing about it, the dressing. That's an easy fix: ask for them to go easy on the dressing or if they have light. I agree with the 1st poster, get a side salad and enjoy the wrap!!

It's not unhealthy, but it is probably a TON of calories. I don't know how big the wraps are (the tortillas), but, at, say, Chipotle, one of their burrito tortillas is about 400 calories, for just the tortilla! A very small tortilla (too small to make into a wrap) will have close to 100 cals.

In addition, it'll have several hundred calories worth of dressing. So, suddenly your healthy lunch is approaching 700-1000 calories, including the chicken and cheese!!

You're better off with a chicken caesar salad, with dressing on the side (just dip lightly into it) and a small roll or piece of low-carb bread.
