Healthy Convenience Foods - They DO Exist!

Disclosure:  Wendy's has sponsored this post but all opinions, as always, are 100% my own!

So it's no big secret that I like to try to eat healthy - we've talked about that a lot, haven't we??

It's also no big secret that I am a busy working mom and sometimes I don't have time to sit down and make a meal for my family.  And while you can't beat the convenience that fast food chains offer, I have always felt that most of them were lacking somewhat in the nutrition department.  Not everyone wants to eat burgers and fries folks!!

I was really excited earlier this year when Wendy's offered their grilled chicken flatbread sandwiches.  The Smoky Honey Mustard was my favorite - and with only 370 calories - it was a great hamburger alternative for people like me that need the convenience but try to keep it as healthy as possible!  I was really sad to see them disappear from the menu but guess what folks - they're BAAAAACCCKKKK!!!

For a limited time only the Grilled Chicken Flatbreads are back on the menu!!!  The Asiago Ranch Flatbread comes in at 530 calories and 30g of fat (8g saturated) - it is topped with natural asiago cheese, applewood smoked bacon, tomatoes, a spring mix, and ranch sauce.  My favorite, the Smoky Honey Mustard, comes in at only 370 calories 15g fat (2g saturated) - it is topped with the spring mix, tomatoes, and their smokey honey mustard sauce.  They are customizable too - if there's something you don't like, ask 'em to leave it off!  Wendy's is cool like that.

You know how else Wendy's is cool like that???  They are celebrating the return of the flatbreads with their #6SecondsFlat Flatbread sweepstakes!  Tell Wendy’s what you think about their flatbreads in a Vine or Instagram video then send it to @Wendys (through Twitter, Instagram or Vine) with the #6SecondsFlat tag and then my custom hashtag #thesmithsummary6 (very important that you use my hashtag, ok??!!) Each week of September, one lucky winner will be randomly selected to receive a $6000 prize.  I can think of a LOT I could do with that prize - UHM, hello Christmas!  Wendy's is also hand-picking the best video entries to be featured on their contest website.  You could be famous!!!

And to give you some inspiration, here is MY video!!

 Good luck and happy eating!!!
