When I started going to Weight Watchers fifteen years ago, I needed to lose 40 pounds. It took a good year, but I lost every pound.
Over the years I’ve managed to maintain that weight loss, give or take a few pounds. Posting healthy recipes to this blog helps tremendously, and it doesn’t hurt that I receive packages on my front porch packed with delicious foods to try.
I’ve used Flatout Flatbread for years now. Many of their products use whole grains, and are low in calories and fat. This makes it possible to put together all kinds of delicious sandwich recipes for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Imagine my pleasure when this time the box on my porch was packed to the brim with Flatout products, including the Artisan FOLDit flatbreads you see here.
These tasty sandwich wrappings are higher in fiber than the typical hamburger bun, have fewer calories and about the same amount of fat. They used refined flours rather than the whole grains they use in their other breads, but the rosemary and olive oil worked so well with my Greek inspired shrimp, that I made a concession this time.
The company sent several varieties, so we tried a Canadian bacon and spinach panini the next day. Both were family pleasing sandwich recipes.
Thank you Flatout! My family and I enjoy your products and appreciate the opportunity to give new breads a try. If you’d like to give Flatout Flatbreads a try, you can find them with their store locator.
