Although it's nice to treat yourself every now and again (and again!), this January we're trying to be EXTRA good by eating as clean as we can. And no, it's not a new year's resolution if that's what you're thinking - it's more of a new lifestyle choice we're trying to be more aware of.
By now, we've all seen that new wrap hack that is taking over the internet this January. And while they all look so delicious, not all of those recipes are very healthy.
But if you've missed this new food trend, here's what you have to do. Get yourself a regular round wrap of your choice, place it on a flat surface, and imagine it is split into four quarters, putting a different ingredient in each quarter. Then, you use a knife or a pizza cutter to cut the wrap, separating the bottom two quarters, up until halfway. Then you fold each segment into each other until it creates a wrap in the shape of a pocket. Finally, you can toast your new creation to make it extra yummy.
If you're like us, and you're looking for some new and inspiring ways to try and eat a bit healthier, then here are some alternatives to this new must-try trend which we've spotted online. They all look mighty tasty and are so easy to make.
