switching to wraps for lunch

since I eat in the car between gym and office every day I can't do a salad and still need the functionality of a sandwich.

anyone use a favorite wrap bread? today I just grabbed whatever tortilla I had in the fridge.

Unleavened bread is still bread. There really isn't a lot good to be said about it. Just eat it in a bowl.

I typically just check the grocery store until I can find a wrap that doesn't have vegetable oil/soybean oil in it.
I've been doing a lot of wraps lately at work because I can just buy the meat/wraps/cheese and leave it here.
I found a decent brand recently but can't remember the name, I'll come back and post a pic.

bowl suggesters - I'm driving back from the gym when I eat, so I shouldn't be juggling a bowl and fork! :-)

plus, I'm not zero carb at the moment

Just about everything is fine in moderation IMHO.

I agree for the most part.
The things I try not to consume, even in moderation are:
soy products/vegetable oil
any hydrogenated oil
MSG
HFCS
nitrates/nitrites in lunch meats ( i get organic lunch meats without preservatives)

Even if I'm wrong, I don't spend a lot more using quality ingredients and in most cases, the end result tastes much better.

Hence the "just about". For me soy, vegetable oil, and msg are not concerns.

Don't worry too much about those. You make more nitrate compounds in your saliva than you are bound to eat from preserved foods.
