I’ve been working very hard at shedding some pounds lately. I’ve been devoting an hour to my treadmill at 6am every single morning, And I’ve been choosing products at the store that are helping me to limit my calories! Summer will be here before you know it, so making more Weight Watchers- friendly recipes are going to help make wearing swimsuits and shorts a more pleasant experience!
I’m currently partnering with Flatout Flatbread’s line of healthy bread to create a few recipes. And since Flatout Flatbread is the only flatbread endorsed by Weight Watchers, all of the recipes I create for them will have a Weight Watchers Smartpoints® total included. Flatout Flatbreads are located in the deli/bakery section of most major grocery stores, and they are all 2 to 4 SmartPoints® each.
Even if you’re not following Weight Watchers and are just trying to lighten things up, Flatout Flatbreads are a simple solution to creating simple meals. You shouldn’t have to deprive yourself of the foods you love if you are trying to lose weight. Just make good choices and smart substitutions, and you can still enjoy the food that you #FlatoutLove.
To celebrate the kick-off of grilling season, I wanted to create a recipe that was filling, delicious and included some time on the grill. I created a sandwich wrap full of lovely, crunchy goodies- one that will keep you full and satisfied.
I used the Flatout ProteinUp CarbDown flatbread for this wrap. It has 3 Weight Watchers Smartpoints and an impressive 12 grams of protein per flatbread.
The recipe begins with just 6 ounces of chicken that has been marinated in a little bit of sugar-free BBQ sauce. I used the really thin-cut sliced chicken so it would cook quickly on the grill.
To give the wrap a little more of that BBQ flavor, the Flatbread is spread with another tablespoon of the sauce.
The crunchy filling is a mix of chopped carrot, celery, bell pepper, jicama and the grilled chicken. All of that is mixed with a creamy yogurt- ranch dressing.
The addition of iceberg lettuce gives these wraps even more crunch. The entire wrap is only a total of 4 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints and 6 Weight Watchers Original Smartpoints®. This recipe makes enough for two wraps!
