Not everything green is good — spinach wraps and pasta actually contain very little spinach, says health experts.

The Mission garden spinach herb wraps, for example, are loaded with 220 calories and 540 milligrams of sodium, with just 3 grams of fiber. The soft taco flour version has just 140 calories and 410 milligrams of sodium for comparison (although it also has only 1 gram of fiber).

Just add fresh spinach to your wrap or pasta dish instead. If you’re picking out tortillas, choose the 100% whole grain variety.
