Part of the reason I miss my carbs is because I am a sandwich girl. I love my bread. But also because it's more convenient to eat at work and doesn't smell as offensive as my salmon, tuna and eggs (which I DON'T bring to work or else my co-workers will hate me).
I now make these low carb tortillas. There are two types and they only require two ingredients each, although I have been experimenting with other flavors.
Each tortilla is about only 100 calories each!
Almond flour: I use this one for my sandwich breads.
- 12 grams almonds (crush up in magic bullet or sub almond flour)
- 1/3 cup egg whites.
Blend ingredients in magic bullet. Then cook in a pan like an omelet and flip. I have been experimenting with seasonings like garlic, pepper, and sugar-free Debbie benson seasonings. The seasonings make a difference!
Tortilla with turkey, mustard, shredded cabbage/carrot mix:
Coconut flour: I prefer to use these as a sweet treat, as opposed to sandwich bread (doesn't go well with turkey, I like it with chicken better). I REALLY like it with almond butter on top or coconut butter.
INGREDIENTS:- 1.5 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1/3 cup egg whites
Blend in bullet and cook like pancake.
You can experiment with cocoa powder, cinnamon, etc.
