The two most #MacroFriendly items on the Starbucks menu are the Spinach, Feta, & Egg White Wrap and the Turkey Bacon, Cheddar, & Egg White Sandwich. I’ve cooked up a copycat for the first, and it did not disappoint! I’ve been enjoying them for lunch!
▶️ 184g liquid egg whites, divided
▶️ handful fresh spinach
▶️ 14g sun-dried tomatoes (dry in bag, not jarred in oil)
▶️ 1 oz mushrooms (optional)
▶️ 14g Publix reduced fat feta
▶️ 31g Philadelphia flavored reduced fat cream cheese (I like chive & onion or garden veggie for these)
▶️ Cavender’s Greek seasoning
▶️ 1 Cut Da Carb flatbread
1️⃣ Measure out your egg whites. Reserve a few tablespoons for coating wraps when cooking. Spray a small rectangular dish or Tupperware with cooking spray and add half of your egg whites (I used one that was the size to fit each wrap shape once cut as per step 4 below). Cook for one minute in the microwave, or until egg whites are set. Repeat with the remaining whites
2️⃣ Add spinach (and diced mushrooms, if using) to a small Tupperware. Cover loosely with a lid and place in the microwave. Heat for 30 seconds, stirred up, then heat for 30 more. Alternatively, you can cook in a pan on the stove.
3️⃣ Measure out your sun-dried tomatoes and toss them into the Tupperware with cooked veggies and place the lid back on. The steam from the cooked veggies will help to soften them a bit while you get the wrap ready to cook.
4️⃣ Fold your cut da carb wrap in half and use the crease to divide into two small rectangles.
5️⃣ Measure out your cream cheese and divide equally between the two wraps, spreading evenly on one side.
6️⃣ Measure out your feta, and divide evenly between two wraps on top of the cream cheese.
7️⃣ Heat a nonstick pan over medium high on the stove.
8️⃣ Divide the veggies between the two wraps on top of the cheese, then add one egg white square to each. Season with Cavender’s to taste, (or salt & pepper / any other seasoning of choice).
9️⃣ Place remaining whites in a small rectangular dish and sprinkle with a small amount of Cavender’s (or salt & pepper / any other seasoning of choice).
🔟 Dip each wrap in the whites and cook on the heated pan sprayed with cooking spray until whites are crisp and lightly browned, flip and repeat. Roll up and enjoy!
Macros for two of what’s shown in the photo are as follows:

1/ Have you tried the wrap at Starbucks before?
2/ What other restaurant item would you like a healthier remake for?
