Recently my mom turned me on to this flatbread and I’ve gotta say I love it! Are you wondering why? I’m glad you asked!
1. It is just 90 calories for the entire flatbread (other varieties are slightly more). Two slices of loaf bread can range from 120-200+ calories.
2. It’s just enough (oh how I do love bread and could easily get carried away) and it actually satisfies my palate. It does NOT taste like cardboard, instead it’s soft and tasty.
3. It has the Whole Grain Council’s label on it which means it has 8 or more grams of whole grains (benefits include reduced stroke, diabetes, and heart disease and there is a link to better weight maintenance). Side note: I generally pass on foods advertised as whole grain that do not have this label.
4. It has 9g of fiber in it. Fiber helps you lose/maintain weight because they it helps you feel fuller longer. Foods made with fiber also take longer to chew, giving your brain time to catch up and realize that you’ve had enough to eat.
I think you’ll enjoy using this loaf bread swap. Try it and let me know what you think!
