Ancient Grains Tortillas…Flat Out Fantastic!
I get so excited when I make a healthy food-product discovery while grocery shopping. I’m always on the lookout for interesting products that I can incorporate into my recipes or snack on while sitting at my desk. Recently, on one of my zillion weekly trips to the supermarket, I was thrilled to spot Dempster’s Ancient Grains Tortillas dangling in the bread section beside their whole-wheat cousins! I immediately scrambled for my cell phone to call Janet and let her in on the BIG news. (Yes, this is big news for us! We lead pretty dull lives!) You see, we’ve been buying Ancient Grains bread for ages and we even did a TV commercial about it earlier this year…but tortillas?! How ingenious! We love our breakfast banana roll-ups with almond butter (see blog entry: The Real Fruit Roll-Up) and now we can make them even healthier with Ancient Grains tortillas.
“Dempster’s® WholeGrains™ Ancient Grains tortillas are made with a blend of Kamut, Spelt, Quinoa, and Amaranth, all staples of ancient civilizations. These nutritious and flavourful grains are rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre and complex carbohydrates.” (Yes, I copied that right from their website, if you’re wondering!) Anyway, I’ve put these tasty tortillas to the test and absolutely love them. They’re perfect in my morning banana roll up and work extremely well in my Mexican Lasagna, too. I think they’d be great for making wraps or dunking in hummus. Look for them in the bread section on your next shopping trip–I’m sure you’ll like them as much as I do!
