okay i KNOW this isn't a paleo-friendly request and i could use lettuce. i am too thin so it won't kill me to sneak in a few carbs.

anyhow

i like wrap bread for veggies. what's a good affordable loosely paleo wrap bread i could buy or make to use? any suggestions?

Zeni if you could read I clearly said "Coconut flour is from a coconut which is all paleo" And then you go on to repeat what I said about Tapicoa. It's a tuber like a white potato. Thanks for the laugh you and Dave S should start your own comedy club. For your information I made Paleo pancakes and they were pretty good.

Excuse me, "tortillas"... Not a bad answer to the poster's question, however. BTW, tapioca comes from cassava/taro/manioc, tubers consumed far and wide for millenia, the flour from which is no less legit than flour from a tropical nut. AFAIK, paleo is about eating real food that works for yr body, period.

I'm a big fan of coconut products. However, coconuts were not available to most hominids during the paleolithic. Coconut flour, oil, etc. require processing and are therefore most emphatically NOT paleo. This does not mean that I do not advocate the usage of said items. It just means that I've moved beyond defining paleo literally, which is why I used the term "othodox numbnut". If you want to argue what's more nutritious or less toxic, fine. But what is more paleo, just drives me nuts.

Botanically speaking, a coconut is a fibrous one-seeded drupe, also known as a dry drupe. However, when using loose definitions, the coconut can be all three: a fruit, a nut, and a seed. So it's totally Paleo.

paleowheatflouralternatives.blogspot.com What I found is that tapicoa is a starch, so I would treat it like a white potato. Not totally wrong, but I'd use it in moderation. Coconut flour is from a coconut which is all paleo. That's why I think coconut flour is better

Someone paleo wrapping their veggies in bread is like a vegan wrapping their veggies with meat...just sayin. Maybe it's the word bread that is bothering me about this question. Then you go on to say good affordable loosely paleo. Are you on the fence about Paleo? Eating healthy isn't as cheap as eating crap.

And besides which, Jamie Van Eaton (aka Low Carb Lolita) is pretty entertaining to read. I've been a fan for years. She has quite a collection of recipes, many of which are primal or could be modified to be so. Check out how she made Doritos out of shredded zuchini! The oopsie rolls were a delicious mistake - hence the name.

NomNom Paleo seems to really like these coconut flour based wraps. I'm too cheap for all that, but I do usually have some rice paper wraps in my pantry from the Asian grocery. Now, I'm much more primal/archevore/ancestral than strict Paleo, but they just need a quick dip in warm water and you can wrap up your protein + salad + veggies and have am adequate wrap substitute. Usually it's chicken/tuna/egg salad, but I've also done some great cheesesteak burritos. Make sure not to make the insides too saucy- better to leave the sauce outside for dipping, like they do for the Vietnamese rolls these are designed for.

"Oopsie" rolls are popular with the low-carb Atkins folks. They are made with cream cheese and eggs, and will puff up to form a pocket if you need pita. Not terribly paleo, but not as bad as bread.

I'm going to go with being not terribly paleo is not paleo. Just sayin. It either is or it isn't. There is no form of bread that is Paleo. Neither are the following: Tapioca, rice, or potato flour.

Here's a recipe for Coconut Flour Tortilla:

Servings: 1 tortilla Preparation Time: 2 minutes

1 tablespoon coconut flour 1/16 teaspoon baking powder 2 egg whites (or, 3 tablespoons egg whites) 2 tablespoons water or coconut milk* coconut oil/butter Mix the coconut flour and baking powder with the water (or milk) and egg whites. Whisk or blend until all lumps disappear (I usually mix, then wait a couple of minutes and mix again).

Pour all the batter on a heated pan greased with coconut oil or butter (grease well). Pour batter in center of pan. Tilt the pan around to spread the batter into a large circle, almost covering the entire bottom of the pan.

Be very careful with this part: wait until the edges are brown on the side of the tortilla, or carefully circle spatula around the bottom of tortilla until safe to flip. Once safe, flip the tortilla and cook for about 30 seconds on the other side.

I use romaine lettuce leaves or cooked cabbage leaves. For "sandwiches" and taco's. Most of the time i just throw the stuff i would make a sandwich out of onto a salad and eat it with a fork.
