February Flatout Fiber Month

Filed under: Flatout Fun, Flatout Newsworthy — flatoutnews @ 11:10 am

I am flatout crazy about fiber! As a lifetime Weight Watcher member, I am conscious of my fat, calorie and fiber intake, and I understand the many health benefits of a diet rich in fiber.

This month, I am making an effort to reach my recommended daily fiber intake of 20 g.  Of course, I won’t exceed 20 g of fiber a day.  As many of you know, too much fiber is never a good thing!

To be honest, it is pretty easy for me to reach the 20 g a day goal.  Because I eat whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and Flatout Flatbread daily, I’m pretty sure I reach close to 20 g every day without even trying. A diet rich in fiber could potentially lower the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and more.

One piece of Flatout Light Flatbread contains 9 g of fiber! That is almost half of the recommended daily fiber intake… in one piece of Flatout Flatbread! A flatout wrap with a side of fruit is full of flavor, deliciousness… and fiber!

Flatout Light (flavors include Origial, Italian Herb and Sundried Tomato): 9 g of Fiber

Flatout Healthy Grain (flavors include Whole Grain White, Multi-Grain, and Harvest Wheat): 8 g of Fiber

Flatout Artisan FOLD it: 8 g of Fiber

McDonalds Rolls With It

Filed under: Flatout Newsworthy — flatoutnews @ 12:52 pm

On Jan 15, I posted an entry on a favorite Flatout Creation: the Flatout Burger.  The folks at Flatout take pride in the versatile product, and continuously experiment with different recipes and creations.  As you can probably imagine, that means that everything from fruit, to meats, to fish to treats to anything imaginable have been placed in a Flatout at some point.  The Flatout Burger has been a personal favorite for years. 

Last night, I saw a campaign for McDonald’s Mac Snack Wrap (http://www1.mcdonalds.com/macsnackwrap/#/home), and I was FLATOUT shocked… and FLATOUT excited! It is absolutely wonderful that the fastfood industry is incoroporating tortillas into their sandwich… and rollin’ with it!  Obviously, at Flatout, rollin’ with it is something we’v e been doing- and loving doing – for years.  McDonalds offers a variety of chicken snack wraps (http://www1.mcdonalds.com/snackwrap/index.jsp), but the McDonald’s Mac Snack Wrap is McDonald’s first beef snack wrap. Although McDonalds does not use Flatout Flatbread, we are excited to see that they are having FLATOUT fun!
