Two thumbs up!
I wanted to buy a low-cal, low-fat wrap for sandwiches (yes, thinking about my laptop lunch makings) and found among the wraps a weird looking oblong wrap. Brand name is Flatout and after looking at the nutritional values of those available, I got the Honey Whole Wheat one. It’s a lot of good bread for just 1 point. Odd though, I can’t find it on the Flatout website. This is the closest to the nutritional value that I found: Multi-grain Flatout.
The texture is great. It’s not scratchy or heavy wheat. It didn’t fall apart like the one tortilla ‘sandwich’ that I made did.
I looked on the website to try and figure out how I was supposed to use it. I found a few recipes but no play-by-play. So, I went with the generic “put the stuff on round end of the bread and then roll tightly.” I smooshed the cheese on the bottom using a wet tablespoon. It made the spreading of the cheese much easier. I then put on spinach, some thinly sliced turkey breast, and some slices of tomatoes. I rolled up from the filled end as tightly as I could but couldn’t do too tightly because of the tomatoes.
It held together very well considering I take my sandwiches so dry — no mayo, etc. I sliced it in half and it still held up well.
Fantastic product! I can’t wait to try some other ideas with it. Interestingly enough, after I bought it, I saw a fellow blogger post her fajita photo made with Flatout bread. So weird to go from never knowing about a product to buying it and seeing it in use shortly after!

Do I include the laptop lunch as part of my food journal or do I do it on its own? Not sure so I’ll try on its own for now so that I can find them more easily (and in case other folks are looking for them too). But I’ll have a picture on the food journal too.
It came. I was so excited to use it that I didn’t even wait for a full dishwasher load. I washed it by hand! Come on. That says a lot.
I had no idea what I was going to put in it. I had Oven fried chicken but there’s no way the pieces would fit. I could take the meat off but the leftovers are too fresh to do that! I had not planned so just went through the fridge.
I made it completely the night before and here it is ready for work the next morning.
And here it is open but with the tops on. I always wonder how people do the tops so I took a picture of how I did them. I followed the directions and put the lidded container in the back and had the tab pointing toward the middle.
No pictures at lunch. Sorry. Card reader was hungry and ate the pictures I took.
Large containers are 1 cup. Smaller are 1/2 cup. The dip container is 1/8 cup.
Laptop Lunch #1: 4.5
1 cup salad greens: 0.
1 cup Amy’s Vegetable Barley soup: 1.
2 Laughing Cow, light, wedges: 2.
1/16 cup (1 Tablespoon) Light Greek dressing: .5.
1 White House Natural Plus applesauce cup: 1.
1 Sugar-free Jello: 0.
The Special K protein bar on the utensils was included cause it fit but wasn’t eaten.
