I’ve been exploring alternative options to everyday foods with a healthier twist on it.  This is when I came upon the idea of using collard greens for wraps instead of the traditional flour or wheat wraps. As soon as I tried this, I wondered why it’s not more mainstream! Seriously, I joked that I would love to start a shop specializing in collard green wraps. I am not starting a shop any time soon, but I want to share this with you.  Try it, you will love it and the best part? It’s good for you too! 

What is so amazing about collard greens is how durable it is.  I love rice wraps, but they are so fragile.  Collard greens hold their shape and provide a nice texture/crunch that is solid to hold while not being overpowering in taste.
