All week I had no food in my house!! I finally was able to go shopping last night and could make myself a nice, healthy lunch.
I don’t normally ENJOY wraps… I eat them but never really like them. I needed a change though, from my typical light wheat sandwich so I decided to try Flat Out (light). For anyone who is like me and doesn’t like the huge wraps where half of the sandwich is only wrap… these are perfect. They are a little bit fluffier than a typical tortilla style wrap and are much smaller so you don’t end up with a mouthful of only wrap at the end. The nutritional info is amazing too, only 90 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 9 grams of fiber and 9 of protein too.
Today, I tried the Flat Out wrap with some turkey, honey ham, lettuce, and cherry tomatoes with Honey Mustard. I also sliced up half of a cucumber to eat on the side. After calculating the meal on my Livestrong MyPlate, I was happy to see that the entire lunch only cost me 284 calories total.
It tastes just as good as it looks!
Making myself lunch rather than ordering takeout makes dieting so much easier. I have control of what I’m eating, know how many calories I’m consuming, and am also saving money too!
I also am a huge snacker, which could be terrible for this diet. However, I try to keep lots and lots of healthy snacks in my office (secret snack stash!!!) to help me make good choices. I keep some fruit in the fridge, along with almonds, mini cliff bars, Melba Snacks, tea, and various 100 calorie packs (my new fav is the Oreo Dipped Bar).
I hope everyone has a great day… mine’s already halfway over!
