Avocado BLT

Avocado BLT via Guest Blogger Emily Bites.

Yields 1 sandwich

Hello again, my Flatout-loving friends! In case you didn’t see the previous post here for my delicious Hawaiian Ham & Cheese Melt, my name is Emily and I blog about lightened up comfort food recipes over at www.emilybites.com. I love to use Flatout flatbreads and Foldits because they taste great, they’re easy to work with and they are perfect for those like me who want to lead a healthy lifestyle without giving up any of their favorite foods or flavors.

One of the things that can be trickiest for those trying to lose or maintain their weight is to find healthy, portable lunch options that travel well, are easy to put together and don’t require an oven, stovetop, or any other appliances not often found in an office. For those of us “dining al desko” in cubicles or offices, this Avocado BLT is an easy, tasty sandwich that will fill you up and make you feel great.

To make this sandwich I used the Traditional White Foldit flatbread and layered on a hearty portion of buttery avocado, some crisp green lettuce, smoky center cut bacon and some juicy slices of tomato. Most BLTs traditionally use mayonnaise, but avocado is a fantastic healthy replacement (and I think it tastes better too!). Avocados have a rich texture that seems decadent, but they are full of vitamins and fiber and since they’re a healthy fat, they help you stay full until your next meal. To make this sandwich even easier, I like to make a batch of bacon in the oven to use in sandwiches and breakfasts all week long – it only takes 15 minutes and it saves you time throughout the week!

Time to trade in your frozen entrees, fast food or peanut butter and jelly and upgrade to something delicious your body will feel good about. Make your co-workers jealous, bring this Avocado BLT.

Ingredients:

1 Flatout Traditional White Foldit Flatbread

¼ of a medium avocado, sliced

Romaine lettuce

2 slices of center cut bacon, cooked crisp

Directions:
