HEALTHY ONE INGREDIENT GLUTEN-FREE CORN TORTILLAS
Updated: May 27
Being from Los Angeles, I've grown up on Mexican food. Granted, it wasn't always the healthiest food, but I've definitely developed a palate for tacos, burritos, and guacamole. So of course, when developing the first Intermittent Fasting Program I HAD to create a healthy LA Street Tacos Recipe (right?!).
Whenever I have friends over, I always invite them over for a Taco Party. Literally every single one of my friends/family reading this right now is probably nodding their head in agreement. One of the simple tricks I have for making tacos extra amazing is making my own homemade tortillas.
Trust me - it's MUCH more simple than it sounds. Plus, there's nothing quite like freshly made, warm tortillas. The Nutritionist in me also wants to let you know that this is by far the healthiest way to have tortillas. Of course the lack of preservatives is key, but there are a few other factors that occur when you make fresh tortillas with organic masa harina.
Organic masa harina goes through a soaking process that makes niacin (B vitamin) bioavailable for your body to absorb. This soaking process also removes the mold toxin "aflotoxin" - which as you know by now, mold toxins can lead to weight gain, anxiety and neurological issues, so this is a HUGE factor!
I suggest using Bob's Red Mill Organic Masa Harina - you can order it on amazon HERE.
Today I'm sharing the uber easy process of making your own corn tortillas plus the benefits of why it's so amazing - other than the fact that it tastes delish. This recipe is a one of 48 recipes included in my new Level Up Program. Read more about the "Intermittent Fasting Guide: Level Up" AND my Fall Intermittent Fasting Challenge HERE!
Now, come hang out with me in my kitchen and let's make some tortillas!!
P.S. I highly suggest ordering a tortilla press. They're about $19 and make the whole process fast and simple. I suggest THIS one.
