Give yourself a break from your normal sandwich by switching out the bread for Flatout Flatbread! I bought the Multi-Grain with Flax flavor and each piece has 9 grams of protein. Besides getting in some extra protein, I’m saving calories because I’m using one flatbread (100 calories) vs. two slices of bread (160 – 200 calories for two slices). I’ve been making breakfast and lunch wraps with it everyday this week.
For breakfast, I’ve been making my normal vegetable scramble and then wrapping it up inside of the flatbread. In the picture below, I have two eggs, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes and cheese. For the specific ingredients and portions that I used, I calculated with MyFitnessPal that my wrap had 317 calories, 25 grams of protein, 25 grams of carbs and 18 grams of fat. I used whole eggs, but if you want to lower the calories and fat, you can use egg whites instead. Using the same recipe with 3 egg whites, the numbers calculate to 228 calories, 24 grams of protein, 24 grams of carbs and 8 grams of fat. Either way, it’s a filling breakfast and quick and easy to make.
For my lunch wraps, I’ve been using left over dinner meat. Pictured below is a lunch wrap made with roasted red pepper hummas, left over steak, spinach and cheese. Again using MyFitnessPal, I calculated that this lunch wrap has 348 calories, 27 grams of protein, 20 grams of carbs and 22 grams of fat. The day before I used leftover chicken instead of steak which made the wrap 297 calories, 28 grams of protein, 20 grams of carbs and 15 grams of fat. As I love fish tacos, I would like to make one with fish soon. If you don’t have leftover meat, you can always use deli lunch meat.
Wraps and More
Besides making a wrap, you can use the flatbread to make pizzas or fold it in half and see how it works in your panini press. If you like Subway, make a flatbread sandwich the same way they do. The Flatout Flatbread website has some fun recipe ideas. I admit I’m a little lazy when it comes to cooking, so I just make wraps.
Below is a picture of the nutritional label. Besides comparing it to my normal bread, I also compared the nutritional info to the Mission Soft Taco flour tortilla that I used when making wraps a few weeks ago. The flour tortilla has more calories (140), more carbs (24 grams), more fat (3.5 grams) and less protein (4 grams).
I paid $3.99 for my package of the Flatout Flatbread. You may be able to find a coupon for it to make it less expensive. I checked coupons.com (affiliate link) for a coupon but didn’t see one there today. However, I did see a deli meat coupon that you can use if you want to make a deli meat lunch wrap.
Have a great day and if you do try the Flatout Flatbread, please let me know what your favorite recipe is.
