Gut-Friendly Chicken Wraps

Being stuck at home doesn’t mean you have to be stuck with the same boring meals, instead spice things up a bit with some gut-friendly chicken wraps that will make your gut, and you, happy!

Chicken is a source of lean protein, which helps the body to repair itself. Chicken also provides a range of minerals and B vitamins. Chicken tends to be easy to digest. It also contains no fiber, making it a good choice for people with digestive issues, such as IBS.

Butter lettuce is low in sodium, is a good source of vitamin A (70 percent of your daily requirement!), and contains small amounts of iron and calcium.

​By combining these two gut-friendly foods, among others, you can indulge and feel good doing it. Check out our take on gut-friendly chicken wraps!
