“Joseph’s provides you with a healthy, reduced carb, high protein tortilla containing Flax, an excellent source of Omega-3! These tortillas have no cholesterol and contain three healthy ingredients: Flax, Oat Bran and Whole Wheat which may help protect your heart, while losing weight. “
On first inspection the packet is nice and bright, gives good information about how they work out the carbs, but the wraps seem a bit flimsy with thin packaging that flops all over the place if you hold it with one hand.
Upon opening the pack is resealable – best feature ever – they should do this with all food. however there is the distinct “i’ve lived in plastic my whole life” sweaty food smell. However this soon disappears once removed from the packet.
I’d estimate them at roughly 8 inches across (having held my fingers up to this well cool site i found http://www.iruler.net/ (i refuse to hold a tortilla up to my computer screen!!)) and are the same colour of standard whole wheat tortillas.
I have had these in many ways over the last few days – with salads and meats inside. but i have mainly been using them as one of my biggest food loves Enchiladas. They make great enchiladas, they dont fall apart and they contain the ingredients well.
However i will warn you – having had two meals of enchiladas (3 tortillas each) on two consecutive days they were that good – my weight has increased by 3lbs!! nothing else in my diet has changed – just the introduction of these wraps.
So although i recommend them and they taste great and are really good at making your packed lunches look normal for once (great for where i work and the main reason i got them) dont go over board. They have a long enough best before date (mine was roughly two months long) that you can spread them out without wastage. I would probably recommend having no more than two a week / three at a push. Definitely not 3 in a sitting and then repeating that the next day like i did. I may eventually get thin but i believe i will always think fat!
