DIY Taco Cones

These unique tacos are the perfect way to make taco night quick and portable! They can even be prepped ahead! Such a creative, fun twist on traditional tacos – and they’re great for taco bar parties and tailgates, too!

Another terrific thing about them is how nutritious they are – lots of healthy upgrades!

For one thing, we swapped out a more traditional tortilla for a Flatout, which is loaded with protein and fiber-rich whole grains.

Then, there’s the taco meat itself. We recommend using the very leanest ground beef you can find, or if you prefer, you can use very lean ground turkey.

Plus, the taco meat has lots of nutritious vegetables mixed in: garlic and plenty of onions, black beans, corn, and a jar of lycopene-rich salsa.

And that’s before you even begin layering in the toppings. Be sure to include plenty of fresh veggies to finish these off – maybe diced tomatoes and thinly sliced romaine lettuce, for starters.

Notice that this recipe is intended to be adjustable. Precisely how many cones you’ll want to make and how far you can stretch the taco meat will depend on a variety of factors, including how tightly you wrap the cones, how many toppings you include along with the taco meat, and how high you pile on the toppings (hint: for mess-free portability, don’t pile them too high).

No matter how you make them, these are sure to be a hit! Taco night, reinvented … portable, more fun, and healthier than ever!

Thai Peanut Wraps

Following a vegetarian diet with diabetes can be a great way to help fight against heart disease. However, many vegetarian recipes can also be high in carbohydrate. To prevent a spike in blood sugar levels, make sure your plant-based menu is rich in fiber and protein with recipes like this Thai Peanut Wrap. By using a reduced carbohydrate, high fiber Flatout flatbread in replacement of a standard wrap high in refined carbohydrates, you can ensure more controlled blood sugar levels after the meal. The addition of protein from edamame along with healthy fats from the peanuts will provide an additional benefit in regulating blood sugar while warding off hunger.

David Dial of Spiced makes eating the veggie rainbow exciting again with his flatbread recipe for a Thai flavored peanut flatbread wrap that travels well between bonspiels. Don’t know what a bonspiel is? Then make sure to read our Q&A with David regarding all things curling, a winter sport he loves to play. In the meantime, grab some flatbreads and make this wrap! Thanks, David!

Turkey Bacon Pizza with Roasted Garlic

This beautiful recipe is big on garlicky flavor and SmartPoints friendly, plus it satisfies any burning pizza desire, all thanks to flatbread’s versatility.

Last year, my efforts to grow my own garlic in the big city sort of fizzled, when, come July, I pulled up little heads of garlic not much bigger than the cloves I planted the fall before. I think the soil was far too compacted from years of friendly neglect (and day lilies) that those sweet little bulbs just couldn’t grow any bigger. I used up every bit I grew, though, and only this week did I head to the store for a fresh supply. Next year, my garlic will hopefully be a success, thanks to a very kind neighbor a block over with dark, beautiful dirt and a lot of space. Thanks, Robert! Here’s to our shared garlic in 2017.

Because the grocery store bulbs are much larger, that means I’m freely roasting whole huge heads of Spanish garlic again, and the house smells great because of it. Roasted garlic is largely very low in calories, but it provides a lot of the things that high calorie foods are typically known for: richness, moisture, flavor, and depth. Roasted garlic does all of these things in spades. Plus it wards off vampires, so….bonus!

In this recipe, we slather the roasted garlic on our Light Original flatbread like a sauce, then add the ingredients on top. The heat of the garlic is softened way down from roasting, so don’t skimp or worry about the dreaded garlic breath. This pizza is going to be worth it. Do you really want to be around someone who would be offended by garlic, anyways? I thought not. After all, they might be a vampire….

Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Wrap

When I’m trying to eat well, I find that the food I make at home has to be 1) flavorful, 2)pleasurable, if not exciting absolutely all the time, and 3)filling, so I’m not hungry right away, which can lead to being hangry. And no one, not one soul, wants to be hangry.

I just read a paper which found that lower glucose levels in couples led to increased tension, arguments, and strife. Every day during the study, the participants were asked to stick zero to 51 pins in a voodoo doll to measure their level of anger towards their spouse. So basically, the lower their blood glucose levels were, the more pins the poor doll got. At least it was a doll, but still, people! To most all of us, it’s not new news that we get grouchy when we’re hungry or really watching what we eat. But 51 pins angry, well, that’s really something else. At that point, I might have to eat a chocolate bar or two, but that’s just one opinion.

For me, the key to achieving the “golden ratio” of eating is to use the concentrated flavor of roasted vegetables, lots of herbs and spices, and acids like vinegars and lemon juice in with all of my flatbreads and wraps to maximize taste and minimize calories. Sun dried tomatoes, roasted zucchini, capers, oregano all qualify in this sunny little flatbread wrap. Whole grains, ample protein, dark green vegetables come together in healthy harmony. What it lacks in excitement, it makes up for in pure, Mediterranean pleasure.

So breathe, relax, eat a little something, and take some pins out of that doll. You have flatbread.
