      Let’s take a look at the main ingredients: 

      • Tortilla
      • Chicken
      • Pesto 
      • Cheese
      • Veggies

      Chicken, pesto, and veggies are natural, nutritious food sources with their own lists of health benefits. Use them to add protein, nutrients, and flavor to a variety of meals. 

      But what about the cheese? Is dairy healthy? 

      Here’s what we know. Dairy contains vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. But if everyone consumed dairy all of the time, dairy farming would become abusive and unsustainable…

      Let’s be mindful of our dairy intake. Buy dairy that comes from pasture-raised cows and try to eat less. 

      Sugar is what makes food unhealthy.

      Classic tortillas are made from white flour (refined grains) which means they are practically all sugar. 

      Wrap this pesto chicken in a 23g sugar tortilla and you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.)

      Substitute regular flour tortillas with a low-carb alternative, and this recipe becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, protein, and quality, whole-food energy.

        Prep Time:5 minutes
        Cook Time:10 minutes


        • 1 large low-carb tortilla
        • 2-3 oz – shredded chicken breast
        • 1-2 Tbsp – pesto
        • ½ cup – mozzarella cheese
        • ¼ cup – sliced cherry tomatoes
        • ¼ cup – spinach
        • 1-2 Tbsp – fresh basil diced
        • 2 Tbsp – balsamic glaze


        • Starting from the outer edge, cut the tortilla in a straight line until you reach the center.
        • Envision the tortilla divided into four quadrants. The cut separates quadrants 3 and 4, while the first two quadrants remain above.
        • Fill the top left quadrant (Q1) of the tortilla with cooked shredded chicken, pesto, and ¼ cup of mozzarella.
        • Fill the top right quadrant (Q2) with sliced tomatoes and balsamic glaze.
        • Fill the left bottom quadrant (Q3) with mozzarella.
        • Fill the bottom right quadrant (Q4) with spinach, basil, and the remaining mozzarella.
        • Let’s fold this tortilla into a triangle.
          a. Fold quadrant 3 (Q3) over quadrant 1 (Q1), creating a 3/4 circle shape.
          b. Fold quadrant 1 (Q1) over quadrant 2 (Q2), resulting in a half-circle shape.
          c. Finally, fold quadrant 2 (Q2) over quadrant 4 (Q4), forming a triangle (1/4 circle shape).
        • Cook on a flat skillet on low to medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side or until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is slightly toasted on each side.
        • Serve with a drizzle of balsamic glaze, additional tomatoes and basil leaves.
