Forget about lettuce wraps, these low-carb tortillas from Costco are made of cheese and are delightful cheesy ways to enjoy your favorite sandwich.
Some people say that one man’s trash is another person’s treasure. But even those who believe they’ve found a real treasure don’t always agree on why.
For example, many people need salt to season their food. However, those living in winter wonderlands can take a salt-free diet, and instead use it to clear their icy driveways.
Similarly, there are reasons why making tacos with cheese “tortillas” seems appealing. And now, these delicacies are available.
These cheese wraps come in three flavors, parmesan, cheddar, and Jarlsberg.
They’re gluten and lactose-free, with no wheat, fillers, starch, flour or added sugar. It’s an excellent low-carb alternative for keto-dieters.
The wraps are also lightly baked, which allows the cheese to keep its shape.
According to Folios, not only can low-carb dieters and cheese lovers use the wraps as they would a regular whole-wheat or flour tortilla, but they can also cook them in the microwave to create chips.
Also, you can make crisped cheese bits that can be sprinkled on salads and soups.
The Folios website also has other ideas on how you can use them, including as a risotto bowl, cannelloni wrap, or even a jam pancake dessert.
Each wrap contains approximately 180 calories, 12 grams of fat, 11 grams of carbs, 290 milligrams of sodium, 12 grams of proteins, and no added sugar.
They don’t contain fiber and are free from gluten, making them suitable for people with particular food allergies.
The diet forces your body to switch from fueling itself, with the glucose found in carbohydrate-rich foods such as fruits, grains, and vegetables, to using ketone bodies that the liver processes from stored fats, according to Harvard Health.
So, if you aim at losing weight, these wraps are excellent diet option for you as they’ll make your body to rely on burning fats.
A dietitian, Kathy McManus, told Harvard Health that an increase in the amounts of saturated fats used to fulfill the diet can put keto-dieters at risk of heart disease.
Keto diet also increases “bad” LDL Cholesterol in the body, which can trigger heart disease.
McManus said that avoiding fruits, vegetables, and grains in your diets can cause nutrient deficiencies.
For instance, it can cause vitamin B, Vitamin C, phosphorous, selenium, and magnesium deficiencies.
Also, forcing your body to only rely on processing proteins and fat can overload the liver and kidney, which can result in health issues on these body parts.
Thus, Harvard Health recommends that you consult your doctor or a registered dietitian before trying the diet.
