Low Carb Tortillas has made a real splash over the last few years. You can find them just about anywhere, from your local supermarkets to supermarkets and even some of the more selective restaurant chains. They are becoming such an important part of the diet that you can find many books and even web sites devoted entirely to explaining the many ways they can be incorporated into your everyday eating plan. Many doctors and nutritionists alike are beginning to recommend them for weight loss.
The reason this is happening is not hard to fathom. These low carb tortillas are so easy and convenient to make that the whole process seems like a breeze. There is no longer any need to try to cut calories or count grams of carbohydrates or fats because there is no measure involved. They are also so much fun to eat, especially when you get to dip them in different sauces and fillings that are tasty and appealing.
The reason they have become so popular has to do with their flexibility and their versatility as food and nutrition tools. While low carb tortillas were always known to be tasty, healthy and convenient, this is something else. These carb-free corn tortillas have been around for decades, but now they are making a comeback. It may be that people are starting to warm up to them again after their long absence. Low carb tortillas have also been around for a long time, but there was never quite the same amount of popularity until recent years.
Low carb tortillas, as opposed to the traditional wheat tortilla, provide carbohydrates, which means you do not burn those precious calories while you eat your food. Instead, the carbohydrates are used as energy source. So instead of having your plate full of bread and fruit and milk and eggs and yet feel exhausted, you can have a burger or taco dinner now. In fact, there are even some restaurants who offer this low carb tortilla mix on their menus. They have discovered the health benefits and now they want to promote them to the public.
Another reason for the increasing popularity of low carb tortillas is because they are healthier. Since they do not have grains or anything else that is refined, they help to clear out your digestive system and leave you with less gas and a more natural insulin release. Since excess insulin can cause weight gain and other health problems, this is a major plus.
There are low carb tortillas available in a variety of flavors and sizes as well as shapes and sizes. You can get them flat, half-moon, triangle, round and so on. Some are filled with vegetables; others are just meat. But most are the former, meat and vegetable filled tortillas. These tortillas are served with fresh salsa and sour cream and they can be ordered with a quesadilla, bean dip or just eaten plain with any kind of dip.
It has been reported that many people prefer them to regular tortillas because they are chewier. People tend to eat less when there are less food to chew and many of them are satisfying in a different way. One of my favorite places in town to get them is at La Gran Plaza. It’s located just down the street from downtown and they serve the best tortillas I’ve ever had.
You can also buy them online from blogs, Amazon and eBay. Make sure to read all of the reviews before buying because some have issues with filler or are overrated. Other low carb tortillas can also be ordered through the internet but many people report bad experiences. It’s a matter of finding the ones that deliver the best.
