When it comes to acknowledging the perks of one’s chosen profession, I’m pretty sure dietitians rock the “free stuff” category. Who doesn’t love getting coupons, lunch boxes, spices, and, of course, food, in the mail? Yep, it’s great to be a dietitian! This was evident, once again, when I received a couple of cases of product from the FlatOut flatbread company. There were squishy balls for all three kids, spatulas, sandwich boards, and NINE packages of different Flatout bread products. Holy cow! I shared them with my sisters and some friends, and the rest we valiantly attempted to finish here.
This is a huge score for a major sandwich-eating family. We get tired of regular sliced bread now and then, and are always looking for something a little different. Tortillas haven’t worked — they dry out too fast. The deli-thins were a short-lived affair as well. We all want something that is moist and chewy, and I, naturally, want whole grain as well. ”Moist” and “whole grain” are not mutually exclusive concepts, as some may think. These Flatout breads were perfect! And, the best part (aside from the already-covered aspect of their fabulous free-ness) is that they come in different flavors, shapes and sizes. We had a good time trying them out in all sorts of ways.
I made sliders one night with the popular turkey black bean burgers and served them on the Flatout slider breads. Delicious and adorable, no?
I also put together a turkey, swiss, and avocado sandwich, stuffed inside one of the smaller fold-it style breads. Filling and yummy!
My favorite, I think, was when Mark pulled together a post-volleyball feast one night by turning a few of the flatbreads into pizzas with caramelized onions and ham. Starving beyond reason, I totally forgot to snap a photo until it was too late. Thankfully the Flatout folks had a picture on their site. This looks a bit like what I gobbled down.
If you are looking to switch up your sandwich routine, or maybe a painless way to decrease your carbs or calories and still rock the sandwich, try one of these Flatout products. You can roll ‘em, stuff ‘em, or turn them into pizza and quesadillas. Check out Flatout for more recipe ideas.
