#LoveYourLunch – Caprese Flatbread

{the ultimate trio}

capreseflatbread

Welcome back to yet another week of Love Your Lunch!  Marisa & I are excited to have Becca on board now for the series.  Now there are three different ideas for some great, yet simple lunches.  Think how easy it is going to be to start loving your lunch!  We post our 3 ideas.  You read it.  You go to the store the following Sunday, gathering all ingredients listed.  You have 3 days of amazing lunches!

Head over to their blogs to check out what is on their lunch menus:

Cooking Like Lou

Not going to lie, last week I was hating my lunch.  My Sweet Peach & Arugula Salad was great, but that’s as far as I got last week.  The other days consisted of random items from the fridge.  I was determined to focus on more lunch items while grocery shopping yesterday instead of intense dinners.  I seriously find myself having a much better day when I know my delicious lunch awaits me around 1:00.

I tend to avoid a lot of carbs for lunch because I end up feeling bloated and too full the rest of the day.  This is not a feeling I want to have while scrambling around & being busy.  That being said, I really enjoy the flatbread created by “Flat Out”.  They are low in calories, not so cardboard-y, and quite flavorful.  The Italian is probably my favorite, but the Multigrain one [see below] keeps me full & not snacking post-lunch.  It contains flax which is an added bonus.  Another plus, I always see them on sale for 2 for $5.00.

IMG_3773I usually use them as wraps liked pictured on their bag, but today I decided to keep it flat & make myself a Caprese Flatbread.  Only a few simple ingredients are needed and I made it in about 3 minutes flat, pun intended.

IMG_3774Mozzarella, Tomato, and Basil.  My favorite trio.  I most likely have mentioned it around this blog once or twice before.  My craving and love grows even more as the weather warms.  A pinch of salt and pepper, a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, and sweet olive oil bring the whole thing together.

Feel free to warm the flatbread in the microwave – however, I have a feeling the tomatoes could make the bread soggy.  The flatbread is easily cut into fourths and stored in a Tupperware for a portable on-the-go lunch.
