I’m on CBS Your Carolina with tips on how to pack the perfect picnic for National Picnic Month
These mini wraps are bite-sized and customizable
Consumer research shows shoppers are looking for foods with less sugar and fewer carbohydrates. The Mission Zero Net Carbs tortillas check both of those boxes because they are high in fiber, low in calories and keto-certified with zero net carbs and sugar. First, I made a veggie wrap made with the Sundried Tomato Basil Tortilla. Start with hummus. I love the Fresh Cravings Hummus from Walmart because is made with a short list of high-quality whole food ingredients including Chilean Extra Virgin Olive Oil, chickpeas and savory tahini. I used the classic flavor but the roasted garlic or Mediterranean flavor would also work. Then add spinach, carrots, cucumber and bell pepper. For the Italian style wrap, start with the Mission Zero Net Carbs Original Tortilla, add roasted red pepper hummus, lettuce, cheese, salami and banana pepper.
For the perfect picnic snack, we have a plant-based snack tackle box aka a snackle box
Start with fruits and veggies and whole grains like popcorn, then add your plant protein. I added wrapped cashews which retain their natural skin so have twice the fiber and antioxidants. They are by Karma Nuts and are air-roasted so no oil. You can find 11 different flavors at Harris Teeter including toasted coconut and golden turmeric.
Chickpeas are also a plant protein-rich snack. The Festive chickpeas unhusked chickpeas hearts so they are super crunchy and come in 6 flavors like ranch, bbq and spicy. They’re also gluten-free and vegan and made with good-for-you ingredients.
