Spinach Veggie Wrap

Under its “Lighter Sandwich Choices” menu, Jason’s Deli serves up a satisfying organic wheat wrap stuffed with mushrooms, spinach, sprouts, guacamole, and pico de gallo. There’s a little salsa on the side for dipping, but the sandwich is plenty moist and plenty filling.  Not in the mood for a sandwich? Try the Organic Vegetarian Vegetable Soup. It’s got just 130 calories and 0 grams of saturated fat per bowl plus 4 grams each of protein and fiber to keep you satisfied.
