Thread: Mission Carb Balance Tortillas

    Default Mission Carb Balance Tortillas

    I don't know what people have been buying, but the Mission Carb Balance
    whole wheat tortillas I buy are marked "small - fajita" and are 80
    calories each. They habe no transfats or cholesterol. Each tortilla
    has 13g carbohydrates and 10g dietary fiber, making it 3 net grams per
    tortilla.

    I also know that they are DH meter-friendly. We don't eat a lot of them,
    but it's nice to enjoy an occasional enchilada or two or a quesodia for
    a quick meal. AAMOF, we'll be having spinach and mushroom quesodias for
    dinner tonight with a salad.

    my system seems to adapt to these things and they will react eventually like
    normal carbs

    At first they work fine then they bring a delayed spike and eventually a
    regular spike as if I ate a non low carb item.

    so now if want a taco or tortilla I just eat one regular one and pile the
    rest of my plate with lettuce and meat and cheese and eat it as a lettuce
    wrap or if I'm lazy a salad..lol

    I'll make and have 5 tacos Tue, 30 net gm of carbs from the shells, have
    5 more Wed. It's the only time I eat much meat.

    How can you eat much meat AND 5 whole tacos?

    Watch that *net* carbs figure, too. Plenty of fiber gets digested,
    roughly half of it, too.

    I'm a growing boy. Long ago I ate 8 tacos at a time.

    I get about 1.1 lbs of gr chuck and make 10 tacos with it. I only put
    cheese and Taco Bell salsa on them.

    Yes. Three is pushing it for me and that's only if they're small and have a
    very little meat in them

    Sounds like a high carb meal with not much protein, then.

    Then you must eat a lb of meat every day.

    But I read too fast and miscalculated how much meat/carb your ratio was.

    Sorry.

    On my blood work normal blood protein is 6.0-8.5, mine is usually in the
    6.1-6.5 range, that should be good for my kidneys. I had spaghetti and
    meatballs for supper the night before the bloodwork.

    And he eats half a pound of protein containing food in just one meal. I
    can't see the problem.

    I don't think that's what that test is looking for, is it?

    I can't even imagine! I have lived with some big eaters. Even they
    couldn't eat that many.

    Not necessarily. I got those La Tiara taco shells that were very thin and
    very low in carbs. I would for sure get more if I could get them locally.
    I was very impressed at how they did not break despite being paper thin.

    A lb of ground chuck isn't a lb of protein, it may have about 75 gm tho
    or maybe a little more.
