Lunch Under 500 Calories: Spinach, Ham and Cheese Warm Flatbread

Hello! I'm trying to be a little healthier lately and so I'm keeping a little food diary, and sharing with you all the tasty things I've found. I always struggle with lunch especially where I'm so busy, I tend to pick up things that are quick and easy. Even shop bought healthy things are not always as healthy as they seem, and often exceed 600 calories without even blinking. Depending on how you like to eat your calories will depend on when you have your biggest meal, but I like to have a lunch with an average amount, so this comes in at just under 500 calories.

Instead of a loaf of bread I used flatbread, warmed in the oven and folded in half. They are quite large so you could actually use just half if you didn't want a lot of carb. I put loads of raw spinach in it, as I love the taste, and some wafer thin ham, as its a little lighter on calories and sat fat. I used Laughing Cow Extra Light cheese triangles, as they come in at only 20 calories a triangle, and they don't taste any different. I used two because I wanted it extra cheesy, but of course one would be enough. I added a teaspoon of wholegrain mustard for some extra flavour - I think this would be lovely with Dijon too!

I adapted this recipe off this version I found on Pinterest, you can find it HERE
