Weight Loss Recipes : Tortilla PinwheelsIngredients:

  • 4 whole wheat tortillas, 8” size
  • ¼ cup light cream cheese or Neufchatel
  • 12 slices turkey ham, sliced, fat-free
  • 1 cup spinach, torn, fresh
  • ½ cup grated carrots


  • Let the cream cheese come to room temperature. Whip with a mixer, or by hand, to make it easier to spread.
  • Spread about 1 tbsp cream cheese onto the tortilla, making sure to reach the edges.
  • Place 3 slices of turkey ham onto tortilla.
  • Put several spinach in the center of the tortilla and sprinkle with 2 tbsp of carrots.
  • Roll tortilla tightly; secure with a toothpick.
  • Cut the tortilla into pinwheels by cutting it in half first, then making bite-sized slices along the tortilla until you reach the end. Lay each piece cut-side down on a serving plate. Serve at once, or refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.


  • Choose colorful vegetables such as avocado red, cucumber, or red peppers, in your pinwheel.
  • Make a fruit pinwheel using peanut butter or jam as the spread, then top with thin banana slices and other soft fruit like strawberries, peaches, plums, nectarines or plums.
