Goodbye to Back to School Blues: Brownbag your Flatout Favorites!

It’s that time of year again. The momentum of the back to school season has died down.  While your kids are sick of homework and studying, you too are dreading the responsibilities that once excited you at the onset of the back to school season.  It’s that time of year again. It’s time when you’re dreading packing a lunch.

We want our kids to enjoy the lunches we pack.  However, we also want lunches to be nutritious and filling, yet affordable at the same time.  It is challenging to pack inexpensive, nutritious and appetizing lunches.  Often times, I find that I have to compromise one of my lunch-packing objectives to achieve the other two.  If I prepare a nutritious lunch, it is expensive.  If I prepare a delicious and affordable lunch, it is often unhealthy.  It shouldn’t be so difficult, and it doesn’t have to be.

This season, now that we’ve been brown-baggin’ it for a few months, you and your kids are feeling bored and desperate for some new lunch ideas.  Revamp your brownbags, with some of my favorite lunch ideas below! These simple wrap recipes will save you time, save you empty calories and fat consumption, and of course, save you money!

  1. I was wondering when we would be getting Flatout on Barrie, Ontario, Canada? I have to buy it in the States when I go (which isn’t very often).

    I love the product and can’t wait to buy in in my supermarket!

  4. Where can I buy flatout bread here in Glendale, Arizona? I purhased some a couple of weeks ago at Wal Mart store but they no longer have it on their shelves. I really liked the Italian which had 90 calories per slice. How can I order some?

    • Hi Jan,

      You can find the 90 calorie Flatout at Safeway, Smiths/Fry’s, and Super Target. Costco carries the Multi-grain Flatout. That is 100 calories, but it is absolutely delicious, and for a mere 10 calories more, it is FLATOUT worth it! A few Sprouts stores may also be carrying. Below are a list of Glendale Walmart locations that should also have the Flatout you want:

      5845 West Bell Road
      18551 N 83rd Ave
      7450 W Glendale Ave
      5010 N 95th Ave
      6645 W Peoria Ave
      5605 West Northern Avenue

      Please email me at flatoutcrazy@flatoutbread.com so I can send you some 90 calorie Flatout product!

      Thanks for the feedback, Jan!
