When you limit your carbohydrates and increase your fat intake with a Keto diet, it can set off a process called ketosis, where your body burns fat for energy. Generally speaking, if you’re trying to be Keto-friendly, you’ll aim for anywhere between 20-50 carbs per day. Keto fans love that they can eat so many of the foods they enjoy and still lose weight - not to mention the added health benefits such as lower cardiovascular disease. Ready to trade in carbs and sugary food in order to burn off some of those extra holiday pounds? 

Watching your favorite sports team or gathering with friends doesn’t have to mean falling off the healthy food wagon. Mission’s Carb Balance wraps are a perfect base for creating delicious Keto-friendly snacks. Here are some of our low-carb favorites that the whole family will love!

Keto Cheeseburger Sliders

Who doesn’t love a mini-burger? The hot sauce, mustard, and steak sauce give these burgers a tasty kick, while fresh tomato, arugula, and avocado top them off with a wonderful crisp touch! Make yours with either hamburger or turkey meat - both are delicious! Once you try a burger on a tortilla, you may never go back!

Keto BLT Tacos

BLT’s are another crowd favorite! There’s just something about the crispy bacon, juicy tomato, and crunchy lettuce combination that’s irresistible. We’ve added some zesty lime sour cream and, of course, sliced avocados to add an extra flavor punch. 

Buffalo Chicken Tortilla Pizza

Tortilla pizzas are a great substitute for carb-heavy doughs. This one is packed with flavor, is easy to make, and fun to share. Not a fan of spicy foods? Swap out the hot sauce for a yummy barbeque - or try our Gluten-Free Tortilla Pizza recipe with your favorite toppings.

Chicken Caprese Tacos

Remember all that pesto you froze from your basil plants this summer? Time to pull it out for this fresh, remind-you-of-summer-time snack. This is another classic flavor combination with fresh mozzarella, basil, tomato, and balsamic.

Low Carb Loaded Mini Taco Cups
