Flatout ‘Foldits’ – the perfect bread for the soft, squishy bread lover in you

Just when I thought the entire collection of RD approved ‘traditional style’ breads had been taken off the market …in comes “Foldit”!  Those of you who’ve been to Spectrum or have ever attended one of our nutrition seminars know that in order for a bread to be RD approved, it should contain at least 4g of fibre and tout around 100 calories per slice. Yes, of course Silver Hills Squirrely bread or some good hearty whole grain dense rye bread (think pumpernickel) will meet these criteria, but these types of breads are not for everyone!

Sure, there used to be Pro-cardio by Dempsters and Healthy Way, but for some reason all the soft, squishy, yummy breads that meet Spectrum’s fibre guidelines have not been stocked on store shelves as of late.  …that is until now – Meet “Foldit”.  These little round flat breads are 110 calories each and have 7g of fibre.  You fill ‘em, fold ‘em and eat ‘em.  Why not try filling up these little gems with one of the following:

  • 1.5 oz of Allegro 4% M.F. Cheese
  • ½ cup egg white omelette
  • 3 oz chicken breast
  • 70g of smoked tofu
  • ¾ can of tuna

Couple that with a nice big green salad (mind the dressing – aim for 40 calories per tbsp. or less) and you’ve got yourself the perfect plate – and all for less than 350 calories!  For the men, you might want to double up (350 calories is a bit low) – Enjoy!

 

By the way…I found these little gems at Safeway ;)
