I’ve been gluten-free for more than three years now and in the beginning, I’ll admit to being a bit apprehensive about navigating the gluten-free world. I knew I was ahead of the game because I already knew how to cook and was relieved I wasn’t learning that skill along with trying to figure out what was safe to eat. And believe me, after you been cross-contaminated a few times, you quickly understand how important it is to be able to eat well while being safe.
I’m lucky in that I don’t really crave bread at every meal because what I found on the shelves is dry, gummy or just plain tasteless. I’ve also discovered that I’m just as happy with a biscuit, scone, flatbread or garlicky Naan as I am a loaf of crusty French bread (although that does sound good at the moment!) I’ve also become a pretty decent baker – all told, we’re both eating better, eating more salads than we ever had before, more whole foods and we cook at home more than we had prior to me being gluten-free – and I don’t feel deprived one teeny little bit.
The few packaged foods we purchase are those we really love – like Toufayan Gluten-Free wraps. We love them because they’re exceptionally good and they taste exactly like their wheat flour counterparts; they’re also soft and pliable making them the perfect to create your favorite wrap.
And if you’re not quite sure how to ‘wrap a wrap’, we’ve created a little video that might help – and we also answer the question, ‘how the heck do you pronounce that name?!’
Toufayan will be attempting to set a Guinness World Record and also support the National MS Society with a ‘Walk Ms New Jersey Wrap-it-up For A Cure.’ On April 19, 2015, Toufayan will attempt to break the record for the Largest Display of Sandwich Wraps at Overpeck Park in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey. Using Toufayan’s line of 10 unique wheat, whole wheat, and gluten-free wraps, they will create 750 unique wrap varieties with the help of friends from the neighborhood and dedicated volunteers from the National MS Society. The Wrapathon starts at 10am so if you’re in the area, stop by and cheer them on!
Disclosure: I am being compensated for sharing Toufayan products with our readers; however, everything I write here are my own words, my own opinion, and my own experiences.
Note: I used the plain, but you can use any of the Toufayan flavors for this wrap; the same for the meat and cheese – roast beef with horseradish sauce, pork, chicken – it’s really whatever you have on hand. And finally, feel free to use whatever honey-mustard you prefer but it’s quite easy to make your own – and it’s one less bottle to store in the refrigerator!
