To meet the demand for healthy, lowcarb fare, you’ve likely seen the trend where restaurants are offering more traditional menus items, such as sandwiches and burritos, in bowls while ditching the high-carb bread and wraps. But why not try something completely different to change things up a little. Something that not only has a great protein hit but also tastes great as well.The egg roll. Try this healthy, lowcarb version, which delivers the deliciousness of the insides of the egg roll without all the carbs (the wrappers) or being deepfried.
