When you are thinking about what to have for lunch or debating quick and easy breakfast options, wraps are an easy choice. Not only is a wrap fairly easy to make (throw a bunch of things inside and wrap it up!), but they are versatile as well. You can put just about anything into a wrap! This is exactly why wraps are a food that many people have on their list of foods they can’t live without.
However, once you are on a paleo diet, traditional wraps may be off limits. Not only do you need to think about what is inside your wrap but you also have to be aware of what is in the wrap itself. Hidden sugars, overly processed ingredients, it all no good when you are switching to a paleo lifestyle. So, unfortunately, on a paleo diet, you will need to say goodbye to traditional tortilla wraps.
Before taking a deeper look at wraps and what options you may have while on a paleo diet, it is important to explore why, exactly, the paleo diet restricts these foods. What is the paleo diet and why are people following it? What effects will it have on you and is it worth changing your life completely to abide by paleo rules? Let’s take a look!
A paleo diet is based on the way people during the Paleolithic period ate food. Of course, back then, there were no processed foods and everything that was consumed was either hunted or found in nature. So, when thinking about what foods you can eat while following this diet, just consider if a caveman could have eaten it. If it is packaged in a box, chances are it is off limits. It is a food that is mass manufactured? Then the answer if you can’t eat it. Is the food full of processed sugars? Then that is a big no.
You may be wondering why people would want to revert to the caveman days. Isn’t the idea of a society to move forward in all we do, including how we eat? You would think that packaged foods would be a societal benefit- we figured out how to preserve food, create new and exciting foods and have flavors and tastes that have never been available before. Why is this bad?!
Well, the reasoning behind eating like caveman is simple- there was just less crap back then. Cutting out modern foods and returning to a hunter- gatherer way of life means you consume less “bad stuff”.
Obesity, heart disease and diabetes are all illnesses that are relatively new to the human race when you consider how long we have been on this planet. Many point to diet and our current lifestyle of convenience as the reason why these diseases are so common. There was no obesity in cavemen! No hunter-gatherer ever had heart disease!
The fact that these diseases and conditions were non existent back in the caveman days leads many to believe that our modern diet is the main cause of the problem. Eating processed foods and consuming food in the manner which we currently do may be what is causing all of these health problems. The easiest way to fix this is to stop eating those ‘modern’, unnatural foods.
Reverting to a caveman way of eating is how many are choosing to resist heart disease, obesity and diabetes and this is where the Paleo diet steps in. Sounds pretty logical, right? Well it is! And many who have switched over to this way of eating have seen many health benefits first hand. However, it is making that initial switch that is the challenge. It is not always easy to give up the foods you are accustomed to eating even if you know the benefits will be great. A lot of the challenges come from giving up foods that are convenient. We all know how easy it is to reach for a bag of chips to curb our hunger or make a quick lunch wrap to throw in our bag for work. These are the things that have to be changed and adjusted when you start on a Paleo diet. It might not be easy, but it will be worth it!
So what exactly can you eat on a paleo diet? Well, we have already mentioned that everything needs to be something that a caveman could have eaten. The exception to this is that the diet isn’t as strict about how the food is prepared Did a caveman have a fridge and a six burner range with a convection oven? No, but you might and on this diet, it is okay to use modern appliances to prepare your foods, just not eating “modern” foods themselves.
Meats are one of the biggest categories of foods available on the paleo diet. Cavemen obviously were hunters and enjoyed all types of games. Pretty much all meats are fair game on a Paleo diet which is great since this allows for a large variety of foods. Vegetables are also a major player in the diet and also something almost every diet out there agrees is beneficial for our health/ Load that plate up with any veggies you can find!
Fruits are another acceptable food group to the paleo diet. Fruits are ideal as they are good for practically anything- breakfast, snacks or even dessert! Thank goodness these are on the paleo diet!
Herbs, spices, seeds, nuts and healthy fats and oils are all part of paleo as well. A sprinkle of spices, a handful of seeds paired with some veggies, meats and fruit for dessert- it sounds like a delicious meal!
Specific things that you can’t eat while following a paleo diet include processed ingredients like granulated sugar, corn syrup, candy or even ice cream. There goes a lot of your favorite sweets! Modern pastas, wheat, barley, beans and most dairy also make the list of things you cannot eat. Trans fats? Those are a big no. Artificial sweeteners? No as well. All of the ingredients and foods that are on this negative list are made in factories, heavily processed and barely resemble the food that they were derived from making them not compliant with the paleo rules.
This long list of things you can’t eat is also tricky as many of these ingredients have a tendency to sneak their way into your food unknowingly. You many go to a restaurant and order a steak and broccoli and think that you are following your diet restrictions. However, little did you know that the restaurant sauteed that steak in butter and also covered the broccoli in a sauce that contained sugar and trans fats. Oh no! Now what? How can you rest assured that what you are eating is paleo friendly?
The main thing to do is ask and read. If you are out to eat, ask what the ingredients in each dish are to assess if you can have them. If you are grocery shopping, read labels and see what is in everything you want to try. Another rule to adhere to is to shop only on the outside edge of the grocery store where the fresh, natural foods are typically found. Those middle aisles are where all the processed foods are kept so avoid them! The outside aisles are where paleo friendly foods can be found.
OKay, so by now you have a pretty good grasp on the paleo diet. You can see why people are following it and also all of the rules you need to follow. But the biggest question is, what can you eat that is easy? What can you pack for lunch? What about those wraps that you love? We mentioned that the traditional type of wrap you may love is off limits. But what if you just can’t imagine a world without wraps? There has to be another way!
And there is! So don’t get too upset just yet! There are plenty of ways you can still enjoy a wrap while on a paleo diet. In fact, you may like these nontraditional wraps even better! Not only are there some super health options for making a wrap but there are also versions that are so full of flavor, you will forget that you are even on a diet.
When thinking about a paleo friendly wrap, the first thing you should take a look at is the outside wrapper itself. The so called “wrap”. You need a “wrap” after all to make a wrap! Tortillas are the typical go to when making a wrap and for good reasons. They are easy to roll, hold their shape and can be found in a lot of different flavors. But when you really look at the ingredients in that “spinach” tortilla wrap, you may find that it is all chemicals, additives, sugars and barely any spinach at all. What kind of nutrients are in that processed wrap anyway? Not many. In fact, studies have been done which show that eating those “healthy” wraps are worse for you than eating regular old bread. The wraps contain all types of preservatives and additives that are not natural and not beneficial to your health. Even if you aren’t on a paleo diet, those wraps should go in the trash. They really are a food that is just marketed to be healthy when they really are not.
Of course, store bought tortillas are packaged items which the paleo diet frowns upon anyway. It is, afterall, a super processed, packaged product. If that wasn’t enough of a signal to stay away from these wraps, you can always try out the old caveman test- were wraps available to cavemen? Could they have even made them on their own? Probably not. There aren’t any pictures drawn inside caves of a caveman enjoying a nice spinach wrap, thats for sure!
So in addition to not being exactly the healthiest choice to begin with, those store bought tortillas are clearly not paleo friendly. That means-off the list! But again, once you look at the massive amount of grains and carbs in a tortilla, you won’t want it anyway! No harm done.
Without tortillas, what are you going to make your wrap with? Well, you will be shocked by how many options you have. These wrap recipes feature some fantastic ingredients that you can use to hold your sandwich together. Everything from seaweed to lettuce, homemade nut tortillas to coconut flour tortillas can be found here. So many creative options that will also add a ton of flavor to your wraps. You thought that store bought spinach tortilla had a decent flavor? Well wait until you try a wrap made with seaweed- now that is flavor!
The overall health value of your tortillas is going to go up as well. Many of the wraps used in these recipes contain vegetables which is a beneficial and wholesome way to add nutrients to your paleo diet. Coconut flour and nut flours also have their own long list of vitamins and minerals that they contain meaning the tortillas they create will not only be delicious but healthy as well. These whole food options are much healthier than a store bought wrap and no one can dispute that.
As you can see, there are many options for wrapping up your wrap. Tortillas are a thing of the past! Time to move on to bigger and better things. If your mouth is already watering just thinking about the delicious wraps you are going to make, just wait. We’ve only discussed what is on the outside of the wrap- wait until you see some of the things that are wrapped up inside!
Veggies and meats, homemade sauces and dressings, even some fruity options thrown in there- what you can put inside a paleo wrap is endless. Toss some seeds in with a roasted beet wrap of smear a paleo friendly nut butter across a seaweed wrap for a fun flavor profile. It is actually impossible to list all of the things you can do (luckily there’s 50 amazing recipes right below on this page!)! One thing we can say is that you will never get bored of wraps when on a paleo diet. While the diet may restrict some foods, the wide amount of available ingredients for wraps rings true. That is why they are such great choices when on this diet!
