    I am proud that I can go to a Mexican restaurant and only eat a few tortilla chips, or just pass.

    Corn for tortillas and tortilla chips is processed the traditional way with lime. It makes the corn more digestible. IMHO, 20% if you can just eat a few. LOL.

    I would rather save my 20% for other things, like the tortillas themselves.

    By definition, it is from a grain and therefore not primal (and NOT good for you).
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    OK, tortillas and tortilla chips are 20% not primal. Organic, traditionally produced ones are far better than SAD. Do 100% if you want. I don't want. It's somewhere above 80% and less than 100% or not at all.

    Lazy chip-eaters, sub in plantain chips instead.

    Just as addicting but no grain and sometimes no bad oil.

    You're welcome!

    My specialty is home made blue corn tortillas. I fry them in coconut oil. Blue corn, water, salt. I gave them up for about 8 months while I was losing weight, but now indulge in them once or twice a week. That's my biggest source of grains, and worth it.

    You can get organic tortilla chips at Costco as well...it is good to know there is some not GMO corn still out there.
    I still won't eat them but still nice to know.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
