2 Bacon Cal 60 fat 6 protein 6 carbs 0
1 oz cheese cal 113 fat 9.28 protein 6.97 carbs 0.36
1/4 florida avacado cal 122 fat 10 protein 2 carbs 2
1 coconut wrap cal 123 fat 8.7 pro 2 carbs 2.6
Lunch total cal 418 fat 33.98 pro 16.97 carbs 4.96

17 grams protein is ok. I ran out of chicken and will go out in a minute to get more for dinner, but the cheese and bacon added a nice bit of protein to the sandwich. I thought about adding boiled egg, but I don't know how much egg I should really be having every day. I'm afraid 3 might be too many as I have 2 for breakfast. What do you guys think?

WRAPS:
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 TBSP psyllium husk powder
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/4 cup butter OR coconut oil, softened
1 cup boiling veggie broth OR water (broth adds flavor)
OPTIONAL FLAVOR ADDITIONS:
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano (click HERE for the health benefits!)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium sized bowl, stir together the coconut flour, psyllium husks, salt and any spices you desire. Add the butter or coconut oil. Stir continuously as you add the hot broth or water, it will melt the butter or oil. Combine until very smooth.

Place the dough onto a piece of greased parchment paper (I used THIS coconut oil spray). Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out in a circle shape with even thickness throughout. Place the bottom parchment with the unbaked wraps onto a cookie sheet (I make sure it isn't stuck to the parchment otherwise it is hard to release after baking). Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until done throughout (this will depend on how thick you rolled the dough). Use for sandwiches! Yum! Makes 6 wraps.
