    Tortilla wraps can get up to syn values as high as 8 and 10!! - I was gutted when I found this out as I love chicken fahitas and similar dishes.

    I stick to Weight Watchers tortilla wraps which are just 5 syns each on all plans - although if anyone knows of anything at all lower in syns I'd be grateful! x

    If you do a search in the syn values sub-forum (your post will be moved there anyway) there is a full list of syn values for all kinds of wraps.

    You could still have some :)

    SW allows for 5-15 syns per day - if I know I'm going to be having fahitas for tea I just restrict my syns through the day. I might have a few syns and save 10 for two WW wraps..or have a syn free day and allow myself three wraps (15 syns).

    The key is just to plan - you can still enjoy your favourites! x

    I eat Weight Watchers wraps about 3 times a week, only 5 syns and it doesn't really matter that they're not HEX cos that leaves me a HEX for something else eg the chicken or whatever in your fajitas.

    I use the Tesco seeded ones at 8 syns if Im making pizza, again the topping can be free or HEX.

    I know it's not quite the same but if you can get a chinese leaf (it's like a cabbage) and then make your wraps in them?

    You can still have all the nice fillings then and even have some syns left for sour cream or guacamole :)

    In one of my old magazines they made wraps out of eggs, ie like a thin omlette. I've never tried them but will try and find the recipes/instructions. I imagine they'd taste too eggy but might be worth trying as they were syn free

    Jackie you're right - I remember reading this somewhere.

    Basically it is just a really really thin omelette, rolled up with your filling just like a tortilla wrap.

    Although they are free, I would still restrict yourself on how many of these you eat. They might be free, but they still contain calories - you dont want to over-indulge too much as it could hinder your weight loss. Worth a try though!

    I might have to try them, I love the big ones cos theyre so buttery, but they were so high I use the WW ones, but if Im having small anyway I might as well have the tasty one :)
