Crab and Avocado Wrap

This wrap contains about 40% of your daily need for zinc, a mineral that helps support proteins found in muscle tissue and cell membranes, and plays a part in regulating blood glucose levels to provide a constant energy source for cells. Plus, the avocado supplies lutein, a natural plant pigment that’s been linked to better vision. Lutein also helps support skin health. No need to visit the seafood counter at the grocery store: opt for canned crab, a convenient low-fat protein source that also provides heart-healthy omega-3 fats.

Ingredients (Makes 1 serving):
2 tsp low-fat mayonnaise
1/2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice pinch fresh ground black pepper
4 oz crabmeat (drained, if canned)
1 plain light sandwich wrap, such as Flat Out Light Original

1/4 large ripe avocado, thinly sliced

In a medium bowl, mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, and ground black pepper. Add crabmeat, and mix well. Spread the wrap with crabmeat mixture. Top with avocado. Roll up the wrap, cut in half, and serve fresh.
