Everything Flatbread
 
This flatbread has become such a game changer to my week-day lunches. Being gluten-free in the age of avocado toast and open-faced, poached egg sandwiches, has not been easy. Gluten-free bread options on the shelves of stores 1) taste like cardboard and/or 2) have ingredients I don’t want to think about consuming and/or 3) cost me half my grocery budget for the week and provides me with a loaf half the size of regular bread. No win. Thus this flatbread has become my go—to when I get that trendy avo-toast craving.

Everything Flatbread

This flatbread is protein and fiber rich, tastes like an everything bagel, and fills me up with energy for the day. I especially love how sturdy, and dense it is. I can pop this bread in a toaster or pack it in a ziplock and it’ll hold up. Did I mention it tastes like an everything bagel??? I bet all you gluten-free folks out there haven’t had that taste in your mouth in a while… and for you people without a gluten allergy, you too will love this flatbread. I use this spice/seasoning mixture from Trader Joe’s called “everything but the bagel” seasoning. It is amazing and kind of looks like the sesame topping that you would see on an everything bagel. Stop in Trader Joe’s to get some! It will change your life. If you don’t happen to have it, no worries, this flatbread will still have that onion and garlic flavor that we all love. Give my Everything Flatbread a try and let me know what you think!
