Recipe: Tasty Tapioca Wraps

NUT FREE *CONTAINS EGGS AND FODMAPS One thing about a wholefoods, paleo-style approach to eating means that gluten and wheat containing products like bread or wraps are cleared out of the humble paleo pantry, never to be seen, looked at or eaten again! Some of us may have attachment issues, but for me, I don’t really miss the not-so-humble bread roll, sandwich, wrap, etc. The symptoms I get and the potential health issues as a result of regular consumption are just not worth it for me. However, every now and then it can be …
