Flat Out In LOVE with Healthy Meal Makeovers

Here at the Complicated Chateau, we are always looking for ways to give our favorite “guilty pleasure” meals a healthy makeover. If we can make it over and get the kids to eat it too, even better!

Making over meals is something I was first inspired to do, after discovering Hungry Girl  years ago. She truly inspired me to think differently about the way I prepare meals at home.

After devouring (pun intended) the many, many Hungry Girl books that are out there, you start to add new staples to your shopping list… Egg substitutes replace eggs, High fiber cereals become your new in-home breadcrumbs, and FlatOut Bread makes your sandwiches low calorie and high in fiber!

I am a bread lover (it was seriously my only pregnancy craving with my son. Yes, bread.). Being able to makeover my favorite sandwiches and wraps with FlatOut Bread was HUGE for me- the only problem was that it was hard to find!

WAS.

This year, Walgreens is teaming up with Hungry Girl and bringing an exclusive Hungry Girl line of FlatOut FoldIt bread to their stores! {Hoo-rray!!}

Seriously, a plethora of 100 calorie FlatOut Bread- both the Hungry Girl FoldIt and the original wraps.

As you can see from my shopping cart, I was panicked that other people in our area would find out about this, so I stocked up. You can freeze them, you know!

What I love about FlatOut bread is that they don’t “taste healthy” – you know what I mean. FlatOut bread is far tastier than other low cal bread I’ve tried– and in addition to being perfect for cold lunches, they also make for amazing hot wraps, panini’s, … and my favorite…. pizza!

We all know that I am all about meals that look like they took way longer to make than they do, and the meals you can makeover with FlatOut Bread are all super quick to whip up!
