This morning before I headed out for my park bench workout, I reached for a quick pre-workout snack in the form of a granola bar. But when I noticed my selection had just 2 grams of protein, I knew it just wasn’t going to cut it.
As a vegetarian and a moderately active person, I’m pretty obsessed with maintaining a high protein intake. So I started scouring the pantry. What I found surprised me. My trusty La Tortilla Factory tortillas pack a whopping 8 grams of protein and 12 grams of fiber each–and they’re just 80 calories to boot. Yes, please! Ignore the fact that they are “low carb”. I don’t go for that crap. Carbs were of no concern to me in making this purchase.
Anyway, I added a smear of crunchy peanut butter and a drizzle of honey for the perfect portable protein snack. Pardon the alliteration.
The best part is, the ingredients aren’t shady as can be the case with many packaged items. Water, oat fiber, whole wheat flour, soy flour, etc. Sounds good to me. Did you know some South Beach wraps contain fish oil? What the hell is that for? Grossy. Pass.
