Paleo f(x) 2016 is in the books, y’all! The trip to Austin was a whirlwind. We chose to drive instead of fly since it should have only taken 7 1/2 hours each way. Thanks to Houston traffic and weather delays, I think we spent closer to 9-10 hours in the car on our way home. Bleh! I’m just thankful my friends enjoy driving! I was able to relax in the backseat playing obnoxiously loud car games with my fellow passengers. Despite the traffic woes, the trip was a success! I learned a lot from the experts in several seminars on varying topics of interest. The highlight of the convention for me was going to all of the booths and meeting the people behind all of the paleo products I enjoy. I sampled so many products and put several new snacks on my list of “must-haves”. Unfortunately, most of these goodies are not available in stores in the New Orleans market at the moment (shocker). Thank goodness for the internet (somwehere Al Gore is attempting to accept this praise, ha!)! The majority of the products are available online with the exception of a few local only to Austin. A couple of my faves have already appeared with my meals on instagram. Shameless plug, I am now on Instagram; search @paleophreak to follow me!
Okay, back to your regularly scheduled programming… One of the foods I sampled were paleo tortillas from Siete Foods. They have two varieties: almond flour and cassava/coconut flour tortillas. I liked the taste of the almond flour better, but the texture of the cassava/coconut flour over the almond flour. I have been making my own paleo tortillas for quite a while now, but tasting these made me realize I never shared my recipe with you all. Please forgive me!
