Delicious, Great Nutrition Made Easy!
As a Registered Dietitian, the best thing I can do to help my clients eat healthy, nutritious food is to encourage them to eat at home more and to include plenty of plant foods in their diet.
This is why I love to provide my clients with clever ideas for quick, delicious recipes. Wraps are at the top of my list.
I work with Flatout Flatbreads™ because their products pass the great taste test while meeting my high standards for good nutrition. These standards include: being a whole grain source, low in calories, high in fiber and having adequate protein (with less than 10% of the recommended daily intake for sodium)
My favorite @flatoutbread wraps include those wonderful veggies sitting in the refrigerator plus reduced fat cheese, a lean protein source and a sprinkle of nuts and seeds.
Try this Chopped Veggie Flatout Flatbread™ Wrap
- Flatout Flatbread™
- Variety of vegetables, chopped
- Avocado or low-fat Greek yogurt
- 2 oz. of rotisserie chicken or turkey breast, chopped
- Reduced fat feta cheese
- 1 Tbl. sunflower seeds
- 1 Tbl. almond slivers
- Your favorite vinegar
- Extra virgin olive oil in a spritzer
1). Take your favorite veggies from your refrigerator or some already chopped in a bag. I keep a salad spinner full of romaine lettuce, spinach, carrots, cucumbers, radishes, red sweet peppers, cauliflower, broccoli and red onion.
2). Chop up your vegetables.
3). Lay out a Flatout Flatbread Original™, Flatout Flatbread Italian Light™, or Flatout Hungry Girl Foldout Flatbread™.
4). Start with a spread to build on. I recommended mashing an avocado to use as a base or low-fat plain Greek yogurt.
5). Spread your chopped vegetables, nuts and feta cheese on top, leaving room to roll up.
6). Sprinkle your favorite infused vinegar on top — Fig Balsamic Vinegar is my favorite. Then spritz on some Extra Virgin olive oil (it’s worth purchasing an olive oil sprayer).
7). Roll and munch!
The great thing about wraps (besides being nutritious and delicious) is that folks with no cooking experience, from ages 8 to 88, can make them. Even college students who only have a small dorm refrigerator and storage bin can have access to a yummy homemade meal or snack.
