Yesterday, we discussed breakfast solutions for the new year, in light of research that shows 4 out of the 10 most common resolutions are health related. In this next installment, we’re taking a look at some of the healthiest lunch meals. Whether at home or in the office, there are a wide variety of simple and easy recipes out there that deliver a nutritional punch!

Perfect Turkey and Cheese Flatout Wrap

Ingredients:

  • 1 Flatout® Light Flatbread
  • 1 oz fat free ranch dressing
  • 3 slices deli style oven roasted turkey breast (3 oz)
  • 1 slice of light Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tomato slices
  • 1 Romaine leaf

Directions:

Spread dressing over entire Flatout. On one rounded end, layer the turkey, cheese, tomatoes and Romaine. Roll, cut and enjoy!

Pizza Roll-Up (via Eating Well magazine)

Ingredients:

  • 1 8-inch whole-wheat flour tortilla
  • 2 tablespoons prepared pizza sauce
  • 12 leaves baby spinach
  • 3 tablespoons shredded part-skim mozzarella

Directions:

Place tortilla on a plate and spread pizza sauce over it. Top with an even layer of spinach and sprinkle cheese on top. Microwave on high until the cheese is just melted, about 45 seconds. Carefully roll the tortilla up. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing into pieces, if desired.

Chicken Ranch Club Flatout Quesadilla

Ingredients:

  • 1 Flatout® Light Flatbread
  • 1/2 cup pulled roasted chicken
  • 1/4 cup diced mixed peppers
  • 1 Tbs diced red and green onions
  • 1 tsp Fajita seasoning

  • 1 piece extra lean cooked turkey bacon, diced
  • 1 oz fat free ranch dressing

Directions:

In a bowl, combine chicken, bacon, peppers, onions, seasoning and cheese. On one rounded half of Flatout, spread quesadilla mixture and fold over. Lightly oil both sides of quesadilla and place in a saute pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side at medium heat, until golden. Remove, cut, drizzle with ranch dressing and enjoy!

    Love the recipes, and the low carbiness of flatouts, but why the insistence on low fat? Fat is not the enemy, it’s our friend!
