The Doppelganger

Everyone has a doppelganger, right?

HIMYM dopplegangersMustache-Marshall, Stripper Lilly, Robot Wrestling Ted, Lesbian Robin and Doctor Barney – any How I Met You Mother fans in the house?

Even the two of us, who theoretically being twins should be our own doppelgangers, have not one, but TWO girls on our own team who have been mistaken for our third sister!

Even in the food world, there are doppelgangers. You’ve got Rice Krispies and Crisped Rice Cereal, for a classic example. We’ve often mentioned how one of our favourite things to do is re-create food we’ve eaten out at home, but obviously giving them a healthy make-over, creating a doppelganger of sorts. Well, today we bring you:


our Sobey’s Chipotle Chicken Wrap Doppelganger! 🙂

We have loved these wraps for as long as we can remember. Every once in a while, instead of making lunch at home, our mom would say “Why don’t we just stop at Sobey’s and grab a wrap?” and oh you bet we got excited!

For all of our non-Canadian readers, Sobey’s is a grocery store here in Canada that, much like many grocery stores now, has a deli section and a hot food section and a bakery etc etc. They always have some of the nicest fresh produce, meats and breads! Our love for grocery stores probably started there, actually, because when we were little, if you went to the bakery section you could always get a fresh baked chocolate cookie from the jar they kept behind the counter. It was love at first bite! 😉


Back to the wraps, though- Sobey’s has a variety of tasty ready-to-go wraps, include black forest ham and swiss, spicey turkey and chicken caesar, but our favourite has always been the Chipotle Chicken! It’s so flavourful and lightly spicey. Their wrap, of course, was made with full-fat mayonnaise and iceberg lettuce, but with a couple quick fixes this wrap can be made into a healthy, lunch-time (or anytime!) nutrition power house!


Swap-out the mayo for low or no-fat Greek yogurt, the ice-berg lettuce for dark green spinach, throw in some tri-coloured peppers and BOOM! Health-i-fied. 🙂 We also used extra-old cheddar cheese in our wrap, which allowed us to use less cheese while keeping that nice cheesy flavour.

An extra (but key!) ingredient that needs to be mentioned here are the chipotle chilis in adobo sauce – this wrap would not be the same without them!


Just like it looks in this picture, these babies have been sent from spicy pepper heaven! They add the delicious smokey, chipotle flavour to these wraps that just wouldn’t be there without them! And what’s the best part? They can be found in any grocery store! Usually in the Mexican isle.


Pair these wraps with a healthy side, like last Simple Sunday’s Kale Chips, and you’ve got yourself a winning meal!

Happy Wrapping!
