Flatout Options

Filed under: Lunch — flatoutnews @ 1:19 am

For most households, lunch-packing doesn’t end after your kids’ meals are packed.  Due to our budget and health awareness, most of us have cut back on eating out.  Obviously, for your kids, you need to prepare their lunches before they go to school.  For you and your spouse, on the other hand, Flatout creations are easy to prepare beforehand or at the office. If your office has a fridge, why not give yourself the option to decide what you’re in the mood to eat right before you eat it?

Store a bag or two of Flatout breads with your favorite condiments, and you’ll not only save money, time, and calories/fat consumption, but you’ll also save yourself a daily brown bag!

Peanut butter, jelly, hummus, cream cheese, and salsa are all staples to keep in your office fridge.  They will last a long time, and they are inexpensive. Spread and call it a wrap!

Also, cold cuts and sliced vegetables such as cucumbers and tomatoes are great to bring into the office on a weekly basis. With all the condiments and weekly additions, you will have Flatout options at your fingertips!

Let’s be Flatout SMART Tip: Be sure to keep your goods in a bag that clearly has your name written on it.  You wouldn’t want a coworker to Flatout steal… could you blame them!

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

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!
