A Better Kind of Tortilla

tortillaI’ve been on the lookout for a better option to a flour tortilla.  Most often I try and stay gluten free but once in a while it’s nice to have a yummy quesadilla or breakfast burrito.  I’ve also had clients looking for a better option as well.  I’ve tried homemade options and corn shell options. Whether it’s due to time constraints or flavor, nothing seemed to be a good option.

My husband came back from the store the other day with a grin on his face and a great find. http://www.tortillaland.com/tortillas

Of course the first thing I did was turn it over to look at the ingredients list.   I was pleasantly surprised.  Because they aren’t fully cooked, they don’t have preservatives!

INGREDIENTS: Wheat Flour, Water, Canola Oil, Salt, Sugar.

They have a corn option as well as one with flax seed in them.

This option may take an extra three minutes to finish them off on a skillet but I’ll take that over eating an ingredients list that looks like this any day (which is a typical tortilla):

Ingredients:

Enriched Bleached Wheat Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Water, Modified Wheat Starch, contains 2% or less of: Brown Sugar, Flaxseed, Salt, Leavening (Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Aluminum Sulfate, Corn Starch, Monocalcium Phosphate and/or Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Calcium Sulfate), Vegetable Shortening (Interesterified Soybean Oil, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Partially Hydrogenated Soy and/or Cottonseed Oil, Palm Oil), Wheat Starch, Soy Lecithin, Wheat Fiber, Guar Gum, Preservatives (Calcium Propionate, Sorbic Acid and/or Citric Acid), Dough Conditioners (Fumaric Acid, Sodium Metabisulfite, Distilled Monoglycerides), DATEM, Enzymes, Canola Oil, Triglycerides.

See what I mean?!  Give them a shot and see what you think.

Informational Session!

The time has come for me to face a HUGE fear!  I have always had a hard time getting up in front of a group of people and speaking.  But now I need to face the fear and do it anyway.

Please join me at my very first Information Session!  I decided to start with an overview of Health Coaching and its benefits and then move on to more challenging topics at later sessions.

If you are able to make it, thank you for being my guinea pigs!  If anything it will be very entertaining.  Bear with me and let’s hope my face doesn’t stay the shade of red that I’m sure it will be turning .
