Sarah: LovIn My Tummy

May 25, 2009

The "crack wrap," which I named for the fact that I CRAVE these pockets of hot, melty goodness are simply a FlatOut wrap filled with Sabra hummus and Kraft fat free Swiss singles, grilled in nonstick skillet.  A healthier alternative to a grilled cheese sandwich, it boasts 15 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber, all wrapped up in 210 ooey gooey calories.  Paired with a salad or a cup of soup, it’s comfort food at its finest.

I find it quite contradicting that the previous post is about eating real, full-fat food and not counting calories… And now this post is about fat free cheese and 200 calorie sandwiches.

I love the crack wrap… they are quite delicious!
Not to cause a problem, but Jenn? Do you strive to cause drama on ALL of KERF’s posts?

jenn-the whole point is that it’s two different perspectives about enjoying food while being healthy

Fat free cheese? Seriously? Why would anyone eat that awful stuff. This is not the early 1990′s – we have learned that it is not necessary to eat fat-free anything. Just eat a little fat – what’s the big deal!? Stop fearing fat!!

While I agree that fat-free cheese is basically plastic (with a laundry list of chemical ingredients), I understand that everyone likes what they like and can modify any recipe to suit their tastes! Speaking of which…

For me, the perfect “crack wrap” is with the hummus, a couple slices of real Muenster cheese (it melts so well and is so thick) and spinach. DEE-licious.

Crack wraps is such an appropriate name, they are totally addicting! If you haven’t tried one yet, you are missing out. ;)

Mmm, melted cheese.

Don’t worry about the naysayers, Sarah. I count calories for weight loss most of the time. It helped me to lose 98 lbs in 10 months. And as a fellow blogger, my audience LOVES when I post the calories. In fact, I get tons of requests for them when I don’t. It’s great to know what and how much you are putting into your body. More people should be aware of nutritional labels and portions. If we were all natural born intuitive eaters, that maintained a healthy weight without counting calories or measuring portions, calorie labels would never exist. And while full-fat cheese is wonderful, I eat reduced fat cheese and skim milk all the time. There’s room for everything in a balanced diet! :)

I don’t know why I didn’t realize you were from Oregon. I check your blog often and really enjoy it. I’m from Oregon but now am in Maine (coast to coast!). Even though we get winter here we also have a lot of sun and less gray rainy days. Love Oregon! Yummy recipe.

I tried this for the first time a few weeks ago & am hooked!

Part of the beauty of this “recipe” is you can easily modify it to suit your mood or what’s in your fridge. :)

YUM.

Ew. Fat-free cheese has an ingredient list the length of my arm, as do those wraps. Give me REAL cheese on REAL bread. (We miss you, Kath!)

why it is that nasty processed cheese melts so beautifully? sometimes “real” cheese just doesn’t compare. This looks awesome. I’m not so sure about cheese wit hummus, but I need to give it a try!

Thanks everyone for the comments.

For all those who aren’t fans, I completely understand.

I avoid processed, fake, “fat free” foods for the most part. If your read my blog, you’ll see that I am into whole foods, fruit, vegetables, Hugh Jass salads, fresh juice, and that I’m about 90% vegan as well. “Crack wraps” are my one guilty pleasure, and kind of like reality TV…not something I’m terribly proud of, but fun anyway!

I love crack wraps, and eat one almost every day! And Sarah is one of the best bloggers out there. If you don’t read hers, you are seriously missing out
