Working for a small private company has a lot of perks and some challenges that include not having a cafeteria and needing to drive to the closest restaurant for lunch. For several months a food truck stopped with sandwiches, soups, salads, pizza, and other wonderful options. But suddenly they stopped coming – though who could blame them with the winter storms and bitter cold temperatures. Not really sure how they made money with stopping at companies in the business park for a few minutes. They did not make the food but coordinated with local fast food restaurants to stock the food truck! The upside is no temptation for pizza and the downside, of course, no back up plan in case a lunch is not available to bring to work!
It becomes important to pack a lunch and a decent lunch so you are not tempted to make a trip to the vending machine for something unhealthy! Healthy is the key – healthy and something that taste good. If it is bland you end up needing something sweet or fun to eat. It feels like I am always trying to figure out my lunch routine. Plus I do not like to eat the same lunch every day – maybe for a week or two – then I need a change. The Greek Style Chicken Wrap is a wonderful, tasty lunch at about 200 calories for a low-carb flatbread. This means there are enough calories left for a Greek Yogurt, a square of dark chocolate, or a handful of green grapes. Life is good!
The new ingredient in this recipe is the low-carb Flatout FoldIt Artisan Flatbreads. They are sturdy enough for a sandwich and taste good – you never know when the package says low-carb. And no, I am not one of those low-carbs or carbs are evil people. But since I sit in front of a computer or in meetings all day, I do need to be careful with my overall calorie intake. I hope you enjoy this recipe!!
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
3 tbsp crumbled feta cheese
