Chicken Spinach Wraps

When you’re trying to watch your calories, it’s important to have some low calorie lunches in your recipe repertoire.  This recipe is low cal and it’s packed with some nutrient-rich vegetables to give you some vitamins, and over-all good-for-you-stuff.  The best part is that it’s really easy to make, so you can throw it together on the fly, or prep a whole week’s worth of lunches, if you’re into that kind of thing.  😉

The crunchy carrots, radishes, and spinach pair well with the soft tortilla and tangy cream cheese.  The chives give this wrap an extra layer of flavor.  I think we can all agree that peppery chicken is just plain good.
