I used to make my own gluten-free tortillas with cauliflower, or coconut flour, but they always fell apart.
Not to mention, took another 30 minutes to cook.
And we always ended up eating our Paleo burritos with a fork. Which was fine, but not ideal.
Then 2 weeks ago I moved to Maui and found these amazing raw vegan, organic tortillas!!!
Life will never be the same.
The TOP 5 BEST THINGS ABOUT THEM ARE:
And they make it super easy to throw together amazing burritos or wraps in 30 minutes or less.
Basically, they complete me <3
This might be a little off topic, but did you know that a main ingredient in nonstick pots and pans has been linked to cancer and birth defects in animals?
Or that the polymer fumes released when Teflon is heated can cause acute lung injury? And that they're fatal to some birds?
That's why I use stainless steel pots and pans now.
Or cast iron.
And I make them non-stick with extra coconut oil or ghee. It's yummier than Teflon. And it makes more sense too.
I recommend the same for anyone who can afford to upgrade their cookware. You can find some awesome stuff here.
Or you can do what I used to do, and check Goodwill weekly to score on amazing cast iron deals.
I used to find all mine pretty cheap there, about $15 for a large heavy-duty pan. I once found a cast iron dutch oven $30. They have incredible deals and they're usually in stock.
We just had to get rid of most of our cookware to move to Maui 2 weeks ago. It was too expensive to ship.
And so we just got a new stainless steel set, which is what inspired me to write this post.
What's more important than our health and the health of our loved ones?
It just doesn't make sense to me to cook with and eat cancer-causing toxins when we don't have to.
I just love you and want the best for you!!!
