Well I just made the most amazing discovery. As a Latina, I love tortillas. Food For Life Sprouted Corn Tortillas or flour, I love them all. So I have found Food For Life Brown Rice Tortillas to be very enjoyable as well. There are also Alvarado Street Bakery Sprouted Grain Tortillas (They are also a highly ethical company as well) that are bomb digity.) But when you realize that you have put on a few pounds and the reality sets in that refined carbs are not your friend. It’s time to just give refined carbs a little break.
Sometimes I want what I want. When a girl wants tortillas she wants tortillas. So I was eating some potatoes, beets and some protein. I wanted some tortillas but I didn’t want the carbs. So I pulled out some big lettuce leaves and tore off a piece. And proceeded to eat it the way I would do it with a tortilla. OMG it was so delicious. I did not feel deprived at all and I think I ate 3 or 4 whole red lettuce leaves.
So I got my “tortilla” fix but not the unwanted carbs. I was happy and satisfied.
So that’s my little story about how my substitute for tortillas. Try it and let me know how you’re experience goes.
