Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

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!

Greek Style Chicken flatbread

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!!

Greek Style Chicken Sandwich

Ingredients
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
3 tbsp crumbled feta cheese
1 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
11/2 tsp oregano
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
4 ounces shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast (about 1 cup)
1 seedless cucumbers, chopped
Plain hummus

Preparation
4 low-carb flatbreads such as Flatout FoldIt Artisan Flatbreads

Place all ingredients except for hummus in a bowl; toss to combine. Spread 1 tablespoon hummus over 1 side of each flatbread. Top with about 1/2 cup chicken mixture. Cover with the other half of the flatbread and enjoy!

    This sounds really. There is a national company that has its manufacturing plant locally: Sabra. They have excellent hummus. My favorite is their pine nut. Their hummus tastes really good and a wonderful texture. I’ll give this a try. 🙂

      Yes, I have had their hummus and it is very good! I also like their pine nut. I hope you enjoy this recipe!! And of course any special touches you add!

  2. I love cucs, so this looks great to me.

    Okay Bernice, we have to talk photography. I’ve been wanting to post some of my recipes recently but our kitchen has such poor lighting for photography that all the pics come out terrible.
    Are the photos you use for these posts yours? If so I would dearly love to know what you are doing because they are great food shots!
    Have you ever done (or thought about doing) a post on how you take your pics?
    What’s your secret?

      First thank you so much for the compliment. I have been working very hard on my food photography. When I look at my earlier photos some I love and others… well I cringe! I invested in a DSLR Canon camera and a light tent. The light tent really made the difference! I take a lot of my photos at night and even during the day the natural light is not good. Check out the below link for what my setup looks like. I do not use the flash on the camera – I have separate flash with a diffuser. Similar to the one in the link below. My research says lighting is everything. Let me know any other questions…. I can do a post at some time if that is helpful…

        Thanks for the explanation. I use light tents and off-camera flash for product photography already so I should be good to go.
        I had a feeling that this was needed to get the shots I wanted but I was kinda hoping to avoid all the fuss…
        Just a suggesting but you could consider doing a post about your whole photo process one day. I bet this is something that many would be interested in.
        I know I said it already but I’ll say it again; your food shots really are top-notch 🙂

      2. Bernice says:

        Thanks so much for your kind words. And you are right. You really cannot avoid the extra steps. I will do a posting at some time. Make this cold winter go by a little quicker!

    Looks lovely and light on the tummy – I’d try it if I ate meat!

      I wonder if tofu would work?

  5. donna213 says:

    Yum. This one is a keeper too.

    1. Bernice says:

      Thank you – I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

      I really need to make this soon for my lunch!
