Other than scrambled eggs with veggies, tacos are probably the meal I eat most often. I eat A LOT of tacos. Shrimp tacos. Crockpot pulled chicken tacos. And my new favorite, paleo pork tacos. Actually all the tacos I eat are technically paleo thanks to Siete Almond Flour Tortillas. I linked to them on Amazon but you can get them at most Whole Foods stores for MUCH cheaper.

Seriously, they’re amazing. Sometimes when I try paleo products, it’s obviously that it’s an imitation of the real thing – and a poor one at that. These are not like that. They are delicious, tasty, legit tortillas. I swear I’m not being paid to say this, I’m not an affiliate or anything. This is not a sponsored post. I just really love their tortillas!

My one problem is that they tend to break…if you over-stuff them…like I do. So first, don’t do that. Second, I’ve found the best way to cook them isn’t on the stovetop or in the microwave like the package suggests. Here’s what I do:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees, lay out your tortillas on a baking sheet, spray them with a spray bottle of avocado oil (best cooking invention ever) and cook for a few minutes just until they’re warm – not crispy.

Seriously you guys, they’re so good. Two tortillas contain 17 grams of carbohydrate and 2 grams of fiber. They’re made from completely whole, healthy ingredients: almond flour, tapioca flour, water, sea salt and xantham gum. I also just realized they’re vegan. Which probably isn’t enticing to anyone reading my very meat and seafood-centric blog, but still good to know!

Now, compare those simple four ingredients to Mission’s (a popular brand of tortillas) 100% whole wheat tortillas:

Ingredients:

Whole Wheat Flour, Water, Vegetable Shortening (Interesterified Soybean Oil, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil and/or Palm Oil), Contains 2% or Less of: Leavening (Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Aluminum Sulfate, Corn Starch, Monocalcium Phosphate and/or Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Calcium Sulfate), Sugar, Salt, Preservatives (Calcium Propionate, Sorbic Acid and/or Citric Acid), Cellulose Gum, Distilled Monoglycerides, Enzymes, Wheat Starch, Calcium Carbonate, Antioxidants (Tocopherols, Ascorbic Acid), Dough Conditioners (Fumaric Acid, Sodium Metabisulfite and/or Mono- and Diglycerides).

Yeah…just because something says 100% whole grains – definitely does not mean it’s healthy.
