When going on a diet, especially a low-carb diet, sometimes it’s not even the foods that become easy to miss, it’s the simplicity of things. Whether it’s the feeling of snacking on junk food or the lack of foods you can pack and eat at work or on the go, sometimes it can feel as though it’s simply easier to ditch the diet and go eat some chips and a sandwich. Often knowing that low-carb foods are a better option isn’t enough to keep you from really wanting that bag of potato chips.
Low-carb tortillas and no carb tortillas can be a godsend in these moments. You can use them for wraps, snack foods, entrées, appetizers and more. They taste great and will nip any leftover bread and snack cravings right in the bud. With the right ingredients, you might even be able to make no carb tortilla chips, meaning you get all the snack value without abandoning the search for the healthiest low-carb foods you can make.
Low-carb tortilla chips are especially great for a diet. Regular tortilla chips have an average of 22 grams of carbs per ounce, which is pretty high for a diet if you want something to munch on. However, the amount of carbs in tortilla chips is already lower than most snack foods, and tortilla chips are often higher in fiber and nutrients than other junk foods like crackers or potato chips. With the right recipe, you can get low-carb tortilla chips that have about 6 grams of carbs per ounce, and often the change in flours and other ingredients will only add to the nutritional value of chips.
When on a diet, it’s important to know how to settle your cravings, or eventually you’ll break your diet. Small meals and snacks can hurt your diet, but in small amounts and with healthy snacks, they can really help you keep yourself on track. Low-carb tortilla chips can satisfy snack cravings, which can be a surprisingly large part of diet cravings. By cutting down the amount of carbs in tortilla chips you use for snacking, you’ll make a notable dent in the amount of carbs you’re taking in. These low-carb tortilla chips can taste just as good and will quell the need for a snack, making it easier for you to keep to the diet plan you’re working on.
