Tortillas are something you think you may never eat again when you’re on the GAPS Diet. For the most part I don’t even miss them anymore. However, when I came across these new tortillas made from coconut at People’s food co-op I decided to pick some up and give them a try. You know, for your sake.
Pure Wraps are a tortilla/wrap that has only three ingredients, all of which are GAPS-friendly: coconut meat, coconut water, and Himalayan salt. So as long as coconut isn’t a sensitivity of yours, you can add these to your GAPS food list. They taste mildly of coconut, but once I added in other foods it was hardly noticeable. They also make a variety that includes curry powder for another flavor.
A unique thing about these tortillas is that they are square, which I find easier to fold. I tested the limits of what these tortillas can hold, but had an unfortunate photo deletion incident, so you’ll have to trust me on that. I made a wrap with: leftover chicken, lettuce, carrots, cucumber, avocado, sweet peppers, a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. I always get a little ambitious with my veggies, and this was no exception. Even though this wrap was completely packed, it didn’t break open when I folded it and I’m really impressed that this tortilla held up through the entire meal without falling apart.
Pure Wraps are something that I won’t eat on a regular basis because they’re pretty expensive. This is the type of food I buy as a convenience when we travel or for a special treat. I will buy these again to make a wrap when we go camping, or on a long drive, so we don’t have to stop for poor quality restaurant food.
If you’re not in the local Portland area, you can buy these online from the manufacturer at Improveat for $4.99 for a package of four.
