Give yourself a midday energy boost by swapping out a traditional cold cut sandwich for these bright, flavorful chickpea and avocado wraps.
Many sandwiches leave you feeling lethargic and weighed down. The refined carbohydrates in white bread break down quickly in your body, leading to a temporary rise in blood glucose (sugar), followed by a quick crash.

Additionally, most sandwiches are made with cured meats, which may lead to increased cancer risk.
I love these chickpea avocado wraps as an alternative because they are tasty and satisfying without weighing you down.
