Tumaro’s Multi-Grain
Gourmet Tortillas

Healthier Wraps and Tex-Mex Dishes

There’s a detailed review of Tumaro’s® Gourmet Tortillas® in our Main Nibbles section. The entire line of 20 flavors is natural, composed of 89 percent to 93 percent organic ingredients, low-fat, trans fat-free and cholesterol-free (they carry the American Heart Association Seal of Approval). But we wanted to call out the Multi-Grain Tortilla in this section for readers who are looking for especially healthy alternatives.

Multi-Grain tortillas aren’t just whole grain, they’re multiple whole grains that include:

  • Whole wheat flour
  • Oat fiber
  • Soy bean flour
  • Wheat gluten
  • Almond meal
  • Sesame flour

Use Multi-Grain Tortillas in:

  • Sandwiches—your favorite fillings (or start with the recipe from Tumaro’s, below)
  • Hors d’oeuvres (roll tightly, use water as “glue”to seal the edges, and cut into finger food slices)
  • Breakfast burritos (scrambled eggs and sausage)

TUMARO’S “BRAIN BUILDER” WRAP

  • 1 Tumaro’s 8" or 10" Multi-Grain Tortilla
  • 1 grilled chicken breast, sliced
  • Small bunch of spinach
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 cup brown rice
  • 1/4 ounce goat cheese
  • Lemon vinaigrette

How It Helps Your Brain

  • The whole grains in the tortilla and brown rice are rich in Vitamin B1 (thiamine), essential for healthy brain and nerve cells.
  • Chicken has tyrosine, the amino acid that perks up the brain.
  • Lemons have folic acid, essential for metabolism of long-chain fatty acids in the brain.
  • While not a brain food per se, avocado is rich in antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E, reduces the LDL cholesterol that contributes to atherosclerotic heart disease, and maintains or increases the good HDL cholesterol.
  • Goat cheese tastes good.  and is digestible by many people who are lactose intolerant of cow proteins.
