Let's talk about the allure of hand-held food. Sushi handrolls, burritos, tacos, spring rolls, and more. The list goes on and on and on. But for those trying to nudge their daily foods along the spectrum away from burrito-land (or even away from corn tortillas), there are few things capable of creating little bundles of handheld mouth joy. Sunfood to the rescue with wraps made from . . . wait for it . . . coconut! Everyone's favorite fatty fruit comes to rescue us once again. These Coconut Wraps from Sunfood, full of raw vegany pressed coconut are excellent vehicles for little spring rolls or even Thai-inspired tacos. ~
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
So, here you are, looking for a way to wrap up that handful of sardine-laced kale salad or pan-fried grass fed beef. You could stuff everything in a corn tortilla, but good luck finding corn without a GMO pedigree, and is corn really primal anyhow? You could stuff everything in a rice-paper sheet, but maybe they're too thin or you are avoiding all grains completely. You could, of course, stuff everything in a real deal flour tortilla, but hey, that's not you. It might have been you months or years ago, but it is definitely not you now.
Take these coconut sheets - made from three ingredients only - and make bundles of tasty joy any time you'd like. No soaking, no gluten, no starchy carbs. They're perfectly sized, smaller than a full piece of paper but able to hold anything you can dream up with chewy strength. A touch of sweetness comes through from the coconut water, which plays nicely against any savory ingredients you add or can just enhance your dessert-like filling. Your creativity is the only limit to what you can stuff in these wraps.
And what about those three ingredients? Let's have a look, along with their nutritional awesomeness:
Coconut has been used by many cultures worldwide for thousands of years, and is well known for its many amazing properties. Coconut is so nutritious, its list of benefits reads like a patent medicine bottle. It’s full of health-boosting lauric acid and medium-chain triglycerides, has antimicrobial and anti-viral qualities, and has been shown to help with weight loss, Alzheimer’s, cognitive function and athletic performance. It nourishes the thyroid, helps prevent candida overgrowth, boosts the metabolism, and makes skin and hair softer. Also, it’s one of the tastiest things a person could eat. (No offense, sea veggies.)
Can you say electrolytes out the wazoo, naturally occurring sweetness, and a thirst quenchability unmatched by any sports drink? I knew you could.

The story behind Sunfoods and why they give two licks about health
The Sunfood™ Story
Years ago, a group of health minded individuals noticed an alarming trend in their towns and communities. They saw friends and family eating and drinking dead, processed foods full of chemicals. They knew that this was the path to obesity and disease, ultimately leading to western medicine’s suppression of symptoms with drugs and scalpels. This is not true healing.
Sunfood was born from their desire to create an alternative path to health. We believe that the secrets to health, energy and long life are found in nature through diet and nutrition. Building upon the wisdom of traditional and modern natural healing methods from all over the world, we are here to share powerful information and superfoods that help people heal and rejuvenate themselves naturally.
It is our quest to find the most nutrient dense, raw, organic, Non-GMO superfoods on the planet. Our search to uncover ancient and modern healing knowledge lost to our society has taken us all over the world, from the tropical regions of South America to the high mountains of Tibet.
