Can I use Yucatan wrap for slimming purposes?

Contrary to general opinion, tortillas are a great ally to a weight loss diet. Yucatan Wraps usually adds few calories to your diet and with the proper stuffing, will transform it in a perfect and tasty dish.




Health Benefits of this Mexican Goodie

  • Tortillas are the foundation of the Mexican diet since pre-colonial times, and although many people give them up when they start a weight-loss diet, they shouldn’t since tortillas have many health benefits. Yucatan wraps are a great source of fiber, but in contrast with other foods that also contain fiber, such as cereals or bread, this fiber doesn’t contain other ingredients that promote weight gain, in fact, fibers help improve gastrointestinal function. Mexican tortillas, besides being delicious, have a large amount of folic acid.
  • Depending on the size and type of tortilla you are choosing, your Yucatan wrap can be moderate in calories and serve as a good source of protein, fiber, b-vitamins, and iron. Whole grains are a good substitute for processed, refined grains such as white bread, white rice, white pasta, and when used in place of processed grains, can help improve blood sugars and keep you full. Corn and rice tortillas can be part of a gluten-free diet.
  • Beans, which are great sources of fiber, are Mexican staple food. Soluble fiber not only helps reduce cholesterol levels but also gives a feeling of fullness, and this nutrient is what beans are full of. Beans are also super sources of iron and protein. 





How to freeze or refrigerate the Yucatan Wrap

Refrigerating Yucatan wrap is quite easy. Put it in a plastic storage bag. Make sure that the bag is tightly sealed so that the food won’t get dry. You can even use the original bag where the tortillas are stored, as long as it can be tightly sealed. I would suggest that you write the date on the storage bag, so you would know when to use the wraps before becoming null. Remember that Yucatan wraps don’t really last long when refrigerated.

Freezing the wraps is easy too. You’ll need wax papers and resealable freezer bags, though, for this purpose. Why do you need wax papers? Lining wax papers between each tortilla can prevent them from freezing into big chunks. This would make it a lot easier for you to remove the tortillas once they have been thawed. Then place the tortillas in a resealable freezer bag. Again, you can also write the date on the freezer bag so you would know when to use the tortillas. When kept in the freezer, it can be kept there for up to eight months.




Notes and Tips

Wraps are so versatile that there’s no end of variations to try. No doubt you’ll have some ideas of your own, but here are some of our other favorite fillings:

  1. Mexican BLT: bacon (or chorizo if you prefer), tomato salsa, and cos lettuce.
  2. Greek salad: tomato, cucumber, red onion, mint, and tzatziki with herb salad and avocado.
  3. Middle Eastern: falafel, houmous, grilled halloumi and tabouli.
  4. Tuna crunch: tuna mayo (alternatively, I recommend smoked mackerel mixed with crème Fraiche and lemon juice – sounds odd, but it works!), spring onions, sliced peppers, and red onion.
