Collard Wrap BLTs

First comes spring, then comes summer…and with summer comes the cravings for light, pack-able meals.  This simple wrap hits all the check points for a satisfying gluten free meal on the go. I make this for a nutritious work/school lunch or for day hikes and even better it can be made the the night before for a quick morning.

Ingredients (per wrap):

  • 2 medium-to-large collard leaves
  • 2 slices of [sugar free] bacon, cut in half
  • 1 handful of salad greens, with or without your dressing of choice
  • 2 hefty slices of avocado
  • 1-2 slices [heirloom] tomato
  • 1 Tbsp [sugar free] mayo
  • [Optional} 1-2 slices roasted turkey breast


  1. Bring a medium sized pot of water to boil (big enough to dip your collard leaves into)
  2. Dip collard leaves into boiling water until soft and bright green (about 15-30 seconds)
  3. Lay soft collard leaves flat, forming 2 layers.
  4. Add wrap ingredients to center of top leaf and wrap the top layer like a burrito.
  5. Flip the collard wrap over and roll burrito-style again with the bottom leaf to create two layers (leak control) of collard leaf wraps.
  6. Cut in half and enjoy!
