Fiber Wraps Recipes | Dr Oz Healthy Wraps

Updated on June 15, 2013

Buy fiber wraps recipes to get more fiber in your diet. To lose weight, it's much easier to make lots of small, healthy adjustments rather than trying to stick to radical changes in your eating habits. Preparing meals and snacks with low-carb fiber wraps is one way of making a small change to your diet that can have big results. I often cook with whole wheat tortillas, so substituting fiber wraps was an easy switch in my diet. Here are some very easy fiber wrap recipes that I like.

These are the fiber wraps recommended by Nancy from the Dr. Oz show.


Fish Tacos Fiber Wrap Recipe

I love this fiber wrap recipe because it's quick and super-easy. I make these fish tacos all the time.

Ingredients for Fish Tacos Fiber Wrap:

  • 2 Tilapia fillets (or other flaky, white fish. I prefer tilapia because it has a lot of flavor)
  • Grated red & green cabbage (I buy the pre-grated cabbage because I'm lazy, but you could also grate your own)
  • 2 Fiber Wraps
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • Mango salsa

Cooking Instructions for Fish Tacos Fiber Wraps:

Heat olive oil in a PTFE Free nonstick pan over medium heat until it shimmers. Season filets on both sides with salt and pepper. Cut fish filets into 1-inch strips. That will give you nice, meaty pieces that you can easily wrap. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Sautee for 5-6 minutes until golden brown.

To prepare the wraps, you can either toast them over a burner or lightly pan fry them in the pan that the fish was cooked in. I prefer to do the latter because the wrap picks up some of the flavor from the fish and the seasoning.

Distribute the fish pieces among the fiber wraps. Top with grated cabbage and mango salsa. Serve.

Banana and Almond Butter Fiber Wraps

Try this fiber wrap recipe as a snack when you crave something sweet. The almond butter gives you protein, the wrap provides fiber, the banana has potassium, and the cinnamon is a natural appetite suppressant. I learned that from Dr. Oz!

Ingredients for the Banana and Almond Butter Fiber Wrap:

  • 1 banana
  • Almond butter (or peanut butter if you prefer)
  • Fiber Wraps
  • Honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Vegetable Cooking Spray (Pam, etc.)

Cooking Instructions for Banana and Almond Butter Fiber Wraps:

Spread almond butter on one side of your fiber wrap. (You might want to use a silicone spatula to do this or something bigger than a butter knife to cover the whole area.) Slice the banana and put the slices on top (I like to slice big pieces on the diagonal rather than cut small slices, so they stay put within the wrap). Place the bananas on top of the almond butter. Drizzle with honey (to add a little sweetness) and sprinkle with a little cinnamon. Fold the fiber wrap in half. Spray your pan with the cooking spray and put on medium heat. When pan is ready, lightly toast the folded fiber wrap in the pan on both sides.

Nancy's Egg White Fiber Wrap Recipe

Ingredients for Nancy's Egg White Fiber Wrap breakfast burrito, as it appears on her Dr. Oz blog:

6 egg whites
Cayenne or red pepper flakes
1 Fiber wrap

Scramble egg whites in a pan. (A PTFE Free Nonstick Pan is healthiest). Season with cayenne pepper (which is good for intestinal cleansing, btw) or red pepper flakes. Put eggs in the fiber wrap and roll it up. Voila! Breakfast on the go.

Nancy says this breakfast is 220 calories, 12 grams of fiber (from the fiber wrap) and about 30 grams of protein.
