Eat Fresh, Healthy and Local with Flatout! by Lydia Fazecas, dietetic intern


So maybe you’re the health-conscious eater who enjoys a salad or a sandwich on whole wheat bread every day for lunch…only that got boring after a while. Or perhaps you’d like to try more healthy whole grain options with your meals, yet you’re at a loss of ideas. Well the owners from Flatout Bread Company understood that, so they created healthy whole grain wraps for the whole family to enjoy for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or as an appetizer. Not only do they sell fresh and wholesome wraps to liven up your meals; they are also local, producing all their products in Saline Michigan. Their dream of providing people with healthy wraps begin in 1990 when the owners, Mike and Stacey Marsh opened up their own restaurant where they served fresh flat bread on their menu. The demand for the flat bread became so great that they decided to make their own recipe and sell it to the public. That dream took off and now they offer many varieties of Flatout flat bread and crackers. The Flatout bread can be used for sandwiches, rollups, pizza, or as pita bread to accompany dips like hummus, guacamole, or salsa. To try new recipes, visit their website at: http://www.flatoutbread.com/.  Feel good about buying local and eating delicious grains!
