Who needs bread, when you can create delicious deli meat wraps using just your favorite healthy fillings alone. Just take some veggies and wrap them up in a slice of nitrate-free deli turkey, ham or roast beef. Definitely an easy and delicious high protein, gluten-free, grain-free option!
I know it can be hard finding deli meats that are nitrate-free and filler-free. So depending on where you live, it can take some sleuth work to find good options, especially if you’re taking the Whole30 Challenge.
That said, there are some good deli meat brands out there that are real food friendly and Whole30 compliant. Here in California, there’s a family farm called Diestel Turkey Ranch that provides gluten-free, sugar-free turkey meat. It’s one of my personal favorites!
And there’s also certain grocery store brands that carry Whole30-compliant turkey breast slices, such as True Story (sold at some Costco & Sprouts stores), Whole Foods 365, Publix GreenWise and Wegmans. But again, check those labels, because ingredients change.
P.S. The same goes for that beloved bacon … It can be a bear trying to locate Whole30-compliant bacon, but it does exist. There are Whole30 Approved brands like Pederson Farms, which is the only brand that ButcherBox carries. And you know what a huge fan of ButcherBox I am! You can get FREE bacon with your first order! Woot!
How to Make Deli Meat Wraps
Step One: Gather your favorite fillings, such as sliced avocado, tomatoes and greens of your choice. If you’re a bacon lover, need I say more … well, maybe I should let you know that finding Whole30-compliant bacon is easy with ButcherBox, my favorite source for quality grassfed meats.
Step Two: Arrange 2-3 slices of deli meat to form a circle (think tortilla shape). Add a dollop of mayonnaise. (One of my favorites is Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Oil Mayo. Yum!) Then, layer a small amount of your favorite fillings in the center of the meat.
Step Three: Carefully roll up your tasty creation and enjoy every delicious bite!
