When it comes to lunch I want things that are quick and easy and don’t require a lot of thought on my part. It seems like I am always in the middle of something when it is lunch time, and I don’t have the time or energy to do anything complicated! So when I was asked to try out the new Flatout Hungry Girl Foldit Flat Bread I was intrigued. This product is a great alternative to bread, with only 100 calories and lots of fiber and protein. It is a great way to save calories while keeping great taste.
So I headed to Walgreens and picked up some Flatbread, and some other groceries to make my sandwiches. I got a package of the Rosemary & Olive Oil Flatbread, and I liked the taste and texture. The bread was in the grocery aisle with a small display, and right next to the other Flatout products. I have tried other 100 calorie breads and not really been satisfied, but this one is a nice middle ground between a tortilla and a roll. The shape is just perfect too, since it is made to fold in half.
I was challenged to come up with two sandwiches, one hot and one cold. I stuck to traditional and easy recipes, since as I said I need my lunches to be easy to make. For the cold sandwich I made a ham sandwich. To top it off I added some low fat mozzarella cheese.
Then I felt it needed some veggies, so I added roasted red peppers and lettuce. The result was a quick sandwich that is high in protein, low in fat and even has a half serving of vegetables. The rosemary flavor from the bread was perfect for this sandwich.
I popped a veggie burger in the toaster oven, and when it was done I topped it off with a little bit of guacamole, salsa and spinach, for a southwestern sandwich.
This was delicious and I am going to be having this again soon for lunch! The salsa and guacamole go really well with the spicy bean burger, and the Flatout was just enough bread to enhance the taste without overwhelming it. It was also the perfect size for my burger.
So if you are looking for new and different lunches that are healthy check out these Flatbreads at Walgreens. And you can find even more recipes and sandwich ideas at the Flatout website here.
