Healthy Low-Carb BLT Recipe

In celebration of National BLT Sandwich Month, we created a carb-free wrap that showcases all the tasty things we love about BLTs (bacon, bacon, bacon) without the bread. We amped up the greens to make a refreshing and light lettuce wrap and used creamy avocado and a boiled egg as a healthier fat substitute for mayonnaise. The egg also raises the protein quotient of the sammie, while a handful of pea shoots sneak in extra nutrients, including vitamins A and C and folic acid. So go ahead and get your fill — you’ve got a whole month to rejoice.
