Low-Fat Sandwich Night: Dijon Peppercorn Wraps

If you’re like me, and you like to serve sandwiches for dinner, you’ll love these Dijon Peppercorn Wraps. I developed this recipe for Laura’s Lean Beef and with 223 calories, 7.3 grams of fat and 19 grams of protein, you can feel great eating these for dinner. Feel free to substitute chicken, but steak is great with the homemade Dijon sauce. This recipe is perfect if you have a hectic afternoon schedule (that’s me everyday with 3 kids).

  1. Mmmmm, this looks good. I am also excited to try the snack mix that you last posted. I have some medical issues right now (you can read about on my blog) and so I will have to hold off on that one. I would love ideas for bland soft diets.
