Is there any such thing as "Induction Friendly"...

lowcarb bread or tortillas?

Looking for something to make a sandwich with or tacos?

when i want a taco, i buy shredded mexican cheese (less than 1 carb per serving) - or u could just use cheddar, and melt a small handful in the microwave on parchment paper. You have to microwave it a little longer than u would to just melt it, in order for it to kind of form a flat crackery thing, and then fold it up into a taco shell as soon as u take it out. they are also very good just by themselves.

Induction is all about breaking old habits such as needing bread products for sandwiches- how about using a big leaf of boston or romaine lettuce? And, tacos you can make in a bowl and eat with a spoon. Try to go for whole foods instead of looking for high carb replacements.

Cleo's Oopsie Rolls. Your Lighter Side...: Gluten-free, low-carb buns (aka Oopsie rolls)

That reminds me, I need to make some. Haven't had any in a long time. I stopped making them because the children kept stealing them.

She also has a lot of cauliflower recipes for pizza crusts and quesadilla wrappers.

I second the ideas using cheese or lettuce wraps.
Bread-like items even if they are LC are a no-no, IMO. They just make me want more carby stuff. Maybe for the time being just lay off of them until you no longer feel the need to have them as much.
But, maybe you will be one of the lucky few who have no trouble with eating them!

Oopsies bread is the BOMB. Loving it, slathered in butter. It completely satisfies my "mouth craving" for bread.

My recipe has 4g net carbs for a big (sandwich size) biscuit but you can make cut that in half and make a sort of crep/tortilla by beating 1 egg, 2-3T water, a pinch of salt, 1T coconut flour and a pinch of baking powder. Mix with a fork until smooth (add the extra water if needed once the coconut flour soaks up the water and egg) and fry in a pre-heated skillet for 1 minute (until it looks a little dry on top) flip and cook another minute.

Original recipe:

Joseph's Bakery (4g carbs) or Toufayan (maybe 6g carbs) both make highly rated Pita bread. I also heard Mama Lupas (sp) makes a great tortilla. You can buy them all at Netrition.

And i love the oopies too. They really are induction friendly "bread" unlike the pita..
