Collard wraps are a great way to get added greens while avoiding all those wraps out there with ingredients that we can’t pronounce and don’t really want to be eating. Now while some of you are saying collard wraps — ICK!!! Let’s try to keep an open mind and hopefully I haven’t steered you wrong yet! If you haven’t tried my homemade chocolate, that will for sure put a smile on your face!!
Back to the collard wraps! Collards provide many vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin A, and C, and some B. Greens are loaded with antioxidants and have some calcium in them too.
The cholesterol-lowering ability of collard greens is another reason to add them to your diet. In a recent study, steamed collard greens out shined steamed kale, mustard greens, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage in terms of its ability to bind bile acids in the digestive tract.
Since bile acids are made from cholesterol, the net impact of this bile acid binding is a lowering of the body’s cholesterol level. It’s worth noting that steamed collards show much greater bile acid binding ability than raw collards.
So that said – let’s see how you can use them! Just check out the video below where I make some collard wrap delight!
