  • Any one else try the new Paleo Wraps?

    Hi, I did something that some may think is pretty silly, that is, I actually ordered the new Paleo Wraps from Julian Bakery, even though I have tried the Paleo Bread, and that was beyond awful, I threw out the loaf I ordered because it was inedible, and even after reading all the bad press about Julian Bakery. I don't know why I wanted to try the wraps after all that exactly, but, I did.....and I liked them. Just wondering if anyone else has tried them and agrees. Yes they are expensive, and yes why not just wrap things with lettuce, but I guess I got tired of lettuce wraps, and these actually do wraps your food without breaking, and they actaully taste good! They are really thin, but then that's actually kind of nice because then you don't get a big calorie hit from them either.

    Anyway just curious to see if anyone had tried them too.

    I'm sorry, but I have to laugh every time someone mentions Paleo bread or wraps or supplements or whatever. Just seems like such an oxymoron to me.

      Yeah, it is an oxymoron, just saying I get tired of wrapping stuff with lettuce, and this way maybe I can actually look forward to having tacos with my family.

        No I understand, I wasn't trying to poke fun at you or anything. I don't see why they would be a problem, although I've never tried them myself.

          It really depends on the ingredients. There is also a coconut wrap approved by Whole 9 (stricter than PB) that I heard works well. I tire of lettuce wrapped stuff too.

            I tried both kinds of "paleo bread" and had the worst IBS flare up of my life! I'm guessing it's al the egg white and the psyllium they use. Just a warning for anyone with digestive issues.

              Psyllium is Paleo? Who knew...

                Is there any psyllium in the wraps? I can't believe people intentionally take that stuff to try to *cure* digestive issues. Blerg.

                  Get an organic corn tortilla if you absolutely have to wrap something. Don't support companies that market faileo foods, as it waters down the message.

                    But... but... Metamucil says it's healthy.

                    Blerg is a fun word. heh

                      So... it is or isn't paleo? My friend did seem to cure her Colitis with psyllium combined with chia seed concoction daily. At least she's convinced that that's what cured it... to be fair, she was also doing that HcG diet at the time... perhaps it just got better b/c she was eating so little... I dunno.

                        In my case it would be supporting local business. Julian is in the mountain suburbs of San Diego.

                        I don't eat grains. Full stop. I also don't eat psyllium. If I could find something that didn't have either, it might be nice to have the occasional taco.

                        I think a watered down message is better than no message at all.

                          The only ingredients in them are coconut meat and coconut water. Again, I agree about the "bread", really terrible and hard on the tummy. These wraps seem to be a totally different thing.

                            Go for it.

                              And they make a lot of money off people selling it.

                              Double blerg. Colitis just means inflammation of the intestinal lining. The HcG protocol is a very expensive placebo that keeps you from straying from a very drastic crash diet. It puts you into ketosis just by being so low in calories. Ketosis is known to be anti-imflammatory. If her problem was caused by a chronic case of the trots then I can also see how that concoction would help. Of course if I ate that I would be stopped up for about a week.
