did she say giveaway?  YES SHE DID.  i am straight blown away, still!

you know those tortillas i am always raving about and using in my recipes like the ones up there^ (quesadillas, wraps, homemade chips, burritos, tacos, etc) well, ahem,  because i’ve been showing La Tortilla Factory so much love,  they decided to show me some right on back!  talk about ‘give it to get it‘, hello!!  they go like hot cakes at my Sprouts Farmer’s Market and i have not been able to snag a pack since the grand opening last month.  however… they handled up on that and helped a Fit Foodie out, BIG TIME!  they sent  me a variety pack that included their Smart & Delicious Light flour tortillas,

and some Fiber & Flax White and Yellow corn tortillas.

so how the heck do you enter?  remember what i said about the jumping through multiple hoops thing… yeah that’s annoying and not gonna happen here.  i appreciate simplicity.  comment on this post and just tell me why you want the wraps and what you plan to make with them!  i wanna know!

now, to INCREASE your chances of winning lol, you can certainly either Like the Fit Foodie Le fan page if you haven’t already,

this was my meal 5 from last night- i perfected the whipped sweet potato recipe for the e-book and enjoyed some with a pan seared tilapia fillet cooked in Bragg liquid aminos and Mrs. Dash onion & herb seasoning! that was all over some fresh, steamed asparagus.

i had some grilled pineapple left over, so i made a super quick ‘salsa’ to go on top of the fish.

grilled pineapple salsa

the stuff:

  • 1 cup grilled pineapple, chopped
  • 2 tbsp red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice

do this:

chop it all up and mix it together! super quick and easy topping for any protein.

last night we attended a home going celebration for a close family member.

if you’re Nigerian, then you can name every single thing on my plate, especially those wonderful, delicious PLANTAINS!!!! my favorite.  if you’re not lol, it’s jollof rice, stewed stock fish and vegetables, spinach, plantains, and there is some super tender goat meat in there somewhere.  i’ll be adding more Nigerian dishes to my repertoire, don’t worry.

you still with me?  today, we met up with a former 6 Pack USA client and Instagram #fitfam member @waltlewjr and chowed down on some Ruggles Green eats! good times, good food & good peeps! I had a mixed greens salad topped with jicama, dried blueberries, and tomatoes and tore up that roasted chicken pizza with Chiso. Sonny had the kobe beef burger with sweet potato fries.  no fish tacos, this time. s/n: why couldn’t Chiso have smiled like that for our family pictures 🙄

the last time i ate RG’s roasted chicken pizza was in 2010 when i was preggo and i ate the entire thing, solo!!! i mean, we.

  2. I would like to win because I am trying to make a transition into clean eating consistently. I will be honest and say I don’t have any fancy shmancy meals that I would make with the tortillas. What I will say it that I would just combine the things that I love and that is shrimp and avacado!!!!! Aha, that’s it I wouldake the best and easiest shrimp avacado wrap around….Lol!! Yep that’s all I got:)

  4. I want to win because my boyfriend and I LOVE making wraps and these are fabulous! We’re both incredibly busy teaching and playing soldier, so between commuting to school/post and the gym and meal prepping during the couple of hours I’m home, sometimes a wrap after the gym is the fastest, easiest and most delicious thing we can make happen! It’s killing my teacher’s paycheck trying to keep enough wraps in the house, so this would be a huge help! We make a million things with them – from quesadillas (coconut oil is the secret!) to what he calls his “man wraps” (overstuffed, with a little hummus to take it over the top) to pizzas. 🙂 I love that you’re giving these away!

  6. Ahhh! I hope I win!! I’ve really been trying to eat clean since the beginning of the year and it is working but in my quest to do better, I’ve given up my beloved tortillas. I just can’t find any that are healthy and clean and still taste yummy! Sometimes taste isn’t worth it, even if it is better for you. Hopefully these will be my happy medium! Delicious as you claim them to be and healthy! #win. I’ve got a laundry list of things to make with these beauties. One thing is veggie tacos with roasted black beans, corn, red pepers, and onions. Another thing are these awesome shrimp quesadillas with a bit of skim cheese and goat cheese, grilled onions and peppers, and spinach. Also, I love your blog! I’m a new follower and I’m always looking for new workouts. My goal for this year is to workout/sweat every single day and I just hit day 100 a few days ago so I’m always trying to mix it up to keep it from getting boring.

  7. Soooo, why would I want some DELISCOUS La Tortilla Factory tortillas?!?! Hmmmm, let me think…. well first of all they’re DELISCOUS and low in calories, they’re great for making oven baked tortilla chips to go with yummy homemade guacamole, they would be perfect for my tortilla pizzas with almond cheese, spinach, purple onions and turkey deli meat, and last they of course would be a no brainer in a nice sandwich wrap. Yum, yum, and YUM!!!!

  15. Yes-oooo! Naija food 🙂 gosh it’s been forever since I’ve had goat meat…hummmm. I digress lol. So since I discovered these tortillas I have been hooked! They are a nutritional homerun…I am really trying to broaden my creative culinary skills and have used them as a pizza crust, wraps & quesadillas. I am thinking of now cutting them up, throwing them in the oven for chips. I didn’t know they came in other types ie. corn?? I smell healthy enchiladas!! In addition being a grad student on a budget they run pretty high (5 bux) so I buy them here and there when I can but run thru them like water. Winning 5 packs would be GLORIOUS!! 😀

  17. Ok I think I have something for those with a sweet tooth…..Chocolate Quesadillas. Simple recipe, Flour tortillas, Cinnamon sugar, chocolate chips( dark chocolate or semi-sweet). Put Chocolate chips on one side of tortilla and sprinkle a bit of cinnamon sugar. Fold in half and cook in pan with cooking spray until golden brown and chocolate is melted. Wait a few minutes before cutting to avoid all the chocolatey goodness from oozing out. You could even dust the top of the quesadillas with the cinnamon sugar for added sweetness!

We live in NC and we don’t have a sprouts anywhere nearby. 😦 If I won the tortillas I would use them to make breakfast burritos with eggs, sautee’d peppers and onions, low fat cheese, and salsa! I would also make cheese quesadillas for my 3 year old. (she loves them!) Thanks for the opportunity and good luck to everyone!

  21. Ahhhhh! I’m so glad I saw this on your ig page, winning these tortillas would really make my entire year! The reason I want these so bad is because im from South Africa and we have no healthy wraps here! Not even from woolworths, we do get corn tortillas tho but they have a lot of additives and other nonsense. What I would really like to use these for is to make a multiple decker pizza 😀 I always see adds on tv for this pizza I can get at the local pizza place but obviously it’s unhealthy and not part of my diet. I would also like to roll a banana, peanut butter and chia seeds in one 😀 I used to eat that alot for breakfast until I became clean, I also recently found a recipe for Mexican lasagne where u use tortillas rather than pasta, and I lovvee lasagne!!! I also thought it would be realllly cool to wrap a small steak, sauce and veggies into the tortilla and bake it with (in love face) like a beef Wellington! I really hope I win these, so over excited already lol 🙂

I’m a fit/clean eating stay at home mom and don’t have all the options in the world so I make due with what I’ve got. These tortillas would make things so much more fun and give me so many more options. Eating clean everyday can be a big struggle especially when I’m trying to feed a 2 year old everyday with things like Mac n cheese or pizza. I’d love these tortillas so much and would love to try them! I hope you I’m in the running to win them! I also have an Instagram cleaneatingfitchick if you want to check up on me and what I’m doing!

Nutrition facts are awesome and fit right into my mission to KEEP IT CLEAN! They wer D-lish! Only have tried the flour ones though…would love to try the corn ones. One of the many things I would like to make (I’m mexican :-p) is a healthy chilaquiles. I cut up into triangles and crisp them up with either some smart balance light or a few sprays of healthy oil. and then throw in the egg/whites a modest sprinkle of cheese then top with some salsa, avocado, and some plain greek yogurt!
