I got these high protein wraps/tortillas from Aldi on Sunday. They are also low-carb (7 net carbs), but I am more interested in the protein content, and there are 12 grams of protein. For dinner tonight, I think I’ll make burritos with brown rice, vegetarian refried beans, and these. It helps me make a high protein meal without having to do something fancy with tofu or having to buy kind of pricey mock meats.

I’ve been reading your posts, but sometimes when I comment, I get that nonce error. I don’t know why, but today I am replying without getting errors. Knock on wood. Let’s see if this one goes through.
These tortillas sound fab, nutrition-wise. Did you see how much fiber they have?!!!? I think it’s something like 10 grams fiber per tortilla???? That’s amazing. Perfect for someone like me who struggles to get enough of fiber.
Have you noticed, do these upset whatever conditions you sometimes have when you eat a lot of fiber? So far I don’t have any issues with eating extra fiber. Even if I eat a lot of fiber in one day, I don’t notice any difference or any problems. Except for that one time when I had a whole package of those miracle noodles!
That being said, I don’t think it was fiber when it comes to the miracle noodles because the package said that the miracle noodles didn’t even have very much fiber. I have eaten way more fiber than what was in that package of noodles in one day, and never had any problems.
From my observations, it’s only insoluble fiber that bothers me IF I don’t take whatever the main ingredient in Beano is. I don’t take it for the gas, but so I can literally digest stuff like whole beans. I could care less one way or the other about farting…LMAO! One day it donned on me if Beano is an enzyme, maybe that’s the enzyme I’m missing and maybe I could take it like a lactose intolerant person takes Lactaid. And it really seems to work! Anyway, it didn’t bother me, but since I was eating refried beans, I took that enzyme but it probably had more soluble than insoluble fiber.
Interesting! Glad to hear that you found something that works for helping you to digest insoluble fiber better.
I really don’t think I had any issues digesting anything until pregnancy. Then when I was pregnant, there was brief period even onions and corn gave me issues. I mostly avoided veggies for a few weeks when I was about 5 months pregnant. But it seemed to resolve. I don’t know that I ate a lot of beans while pregnant. I don’t remember eating many. I think I probably stuck to animal protein most of the time. But at some point after pregnancy, I developed IBS/IBS-like symptoms and it sucked. I avoided getting any official diagnosis since it wasn’t exactly debilitating, just really annoying and inconvenient, and I was able to eventually pinpoint what was causing it. I don’t think it’s my immune system or something. I wonder if pregnancy changed my gut bacteria? I wonder if some women become lactose intolerant after pregnancy?
