One Ingredient; Endless Cinco de Mayo Possibilities

May 5 2016
Why waste time, money, and calories on high-carb bread when there are Flatout Flatbreads in the world? Whether you're whipping up the perfect Cinco de Mayo party platter (more on that below!) or just enjoying an afternoon wrap, you need these things in your life. Fiesta time...

HG All-Star: Flatout Light Original Flatbread

1 flatbread: 90 calories, 1.5 total fat (0g sat fat), 250mg sodium, 14g carbs, 8g fiber, 0g sugars, 9g protein -- SmartPoints® value 2*

Just look at those stats! Trade a couple of ordinary whole-wheat bread slices for one of these, and you'll cut your carbs and calories IN HALF. And not only are these wraps high in fiber, they also serve up a whopping 9g of protein each. WOW. It gets better... In addition to the classic Original, check out these other 90-calorie Light options: Italian Herb, Sundried Tomato, and Garden Spinach. Did we mention they're insanely delicious and crazy versatile? It's no wonder they're an HG all-star!

HG's Top 3 Tips for a Guilt-Free Cinco de Mayo

1. DIY.

There's no reason to waste calories on restaurant burritos and tacos. Whip up your own goodies with Flatout Light Flatbreads. Fill 'em with ingredients like shredded lettuce, grilled chicken, reduced-fat cheese, and fresh salsa. Yum!

2. Sip smart.

If you're of the legal drinking age, trade sugary margaritas and regular beer for HG-style 'ritas and light beer. For a 115-calorie margarita, just mix up 6 oz. diet lemon-lime soda, 1 1/2 oz. tequila, 1 oz. lime juice, and a 2-serving packet of sugar-free lemonade powdered drink mix. Serve over lots of crushed ice!

3. If you're attending a party, bring a healthy dish.

This way, you know there'll be at least one smart selection. (Bonus? Your host will probably be super appreciative!) Need some recipe inspiration? Keep reading...
