The Mission garden spinach herb wraps, for example, are loaded with 220 calories and 540 milligrams of sodium, with just 3 grams of fiber. The soft taco flour version has just 140 calories and 410 milligrams of sodium for comparison (although it also has only 1 gram of fiber).
Just add fresh spinach to your wrap or pasta dish instead. If you’re picking out tortillas, choose the 100% whole grain variety.
