>La Tortilla Factory “Smart & Delicious” Review

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

>My husband and 5 year old have been happy campers at lunchtime lately.  They’ve been loving the La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Tomato & Basil soft wraps we received for review, and I still can’t believe my 5 year old asks for these! 

These wraps are great- a generous size, low carb, high fiber, and delicious.  They also don’t fall apart like other brands we’ve tried when actually wrapping with it!!  This is huge because my husband brings lunch to work almost daily and its no good when he’s got a fallen apart wrap in the middle of CT doing a site visit.  That’s never fun when you are hungry and your lunch falls apart!

My 5 year old loves when I make “spinwheels” with these wraps- and hey, if she wants to eat new foods, especially healthy foods, how can I say no? 

We’ve used these 2 different nights with leftover meat from the day before to make wraps for dinner- so yummy.  My husband has tested how much these wraps can hold and its a lot!

The La Tortilla Factory also offers a recipe section – I have my eye on this for breakfast for the family tomorrow morning:

Egg, Tomatoes, Carmelized Onion & Low-Fat Cottage Cheese Wraps
Ingredients

1 tsp olive or canola oil

2 Tbsp chopped onion

2 medium eggs, lightly beaten with a fork

1 large tomato, diced

¼ cup low fat cottage cheese

2 La Tortilla Factory 100 Calorie Tortillas™

Directions

1.Preheat the oil in a sauté pan; cook the onion over medium heat for 1 minute or until tender.

2.In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, diced tomatoes, cottage cheese and mix well with a fork or whisk.

3.Pour the egg mixture into the browned onion and scramble for 1 minute over medium-low heat. Divide into two portions.

4.Fill each warm tortilla with half of the cooked egg mixture and fold the sides over the filling into a wrap.

Number of Servings: 2 < 300 calories

If you are watching what you eat, like I am, you know the importance of fiber- for many reasons. 

Registered Dietitian Molly Kimball tells us:
· High fiber foods help to keep us feeling fuller longer, making it easier to cut back on calories, and can translate into greater weight loss.

· A diet rich in fiber is known to reduce cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar levels, which in turn can lower risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
· La Tortilla Factory tortillas make it effortless to incorporate bread into your diet without fear of excess carbs or calories. The 50-calorie Smart & Delicious Low Carb, High Fiber wrap has half the calories and carbs – and more than twice the fiber – of a typical slice of whole grain bread

There are many varieties and flavors of the La Tortilla wrap and you are sure to find one that agrees with your tastebuds, your belly, and your budget!!
