Today I’m excited to introduce to you the NEW VitaEgg Flatbread sandwich and a giveaway!
When VitaEgg contacted me to review their new product, I was pretty excited. I had seen their products in the grocery store, but never tried them. I was curious if they tasted like pancakes like so many other processed weight loss foods. I remember seeing them a long time when they first came out and thinking where were these products when I was losing weight? Back then I was traveling every week. Practically the only food I could keep in the house was in the freezer. Thankfully eggs stay good for awhile and I eat a lot of them so they’re never around long enough to go bad.
VitaEgg is made by Vitalicious aka “vital” and “delicious.” That name is too cool and it goes with Fitalicious! Vitalicious markets baked goods low in calories & fat, high in fiber and essential nutrients. You may have seen some of their other products like VitaMuffin™, VitaTop™, VitaBrownie™, VitaCake™, and VitaMuffin Mix™. Vitalicious has a unique triangle to meet the satisfaction and health needs of its customers; All Natural Ingredients + Nutraceuticals + Weight Management.
My first observation -> what’s Nutraceuticals? According to their website, they are vitamin and mineral enriched foods aka the ingredients have been modified from its original state. Not the best, most healthy food option but I get what they’re trying to do. The VitaEgg Flatbread Sandwich is made with no preservatives or artificial coloring. Each sandwich has no cholesterol and is rich in protein; lutein for eye health; choline for brain health; omega-3 DHA; and all 9 essential amino acids. Hard to balk at that. Most processed foods won’t come close.
Each VitaEgg Flatbread Sandwich contains a fluffy VitaEgg topped with cheese and veggies on a whole-grain, high-fiber flatbread. The sandwiches come 2 per box, 120 calories each. That’s not bad considering how big and filling they are. They have a lot of fiber, which is probably why they keep you full. They’re also low in sodium which is not something you find in processed foods.
They’re a great option for those on the go. All you do is remove it from the freezer & plastic, microwave & go. When I received mine, they couldn’t have come at a better time. I was crazy busy leaving my job & starting a new one and didn’t have time to cook with all the administrative things I was juggling along with work, blogging, injury recovery & fitness #my crazy life. While I love cooking, it’s nice to have a backup every once in while. If I don’t, then I don’t eat or I overindulge. These helped keep me on track when life was too crazy to make my own meals and eating out can be tricky.
- Great tasting
- Easy for people on the go with no time to cook
- Low calorie & low fat for those watching their waistlines
- Impressive nutrient & mineral content – low sodium, high protein, high fiber, multiple vitamins & no cholesterol
- Cost is reasonable $4.99 for 2 sandwiches
- No egg white or cheeseless option for those who don’t love yolks & yellow cheese (like me)
- Processed food with too many ingredients
- Ingredients are not listed under the nutritional value on the package or easy to find on the product website, this is a huge pet peeve of mine
Overall I liked the taste but didn’t love the ingredients. This is a good option if you don’t have time to make eggs in the morning & need something quick and close to healthy. So why not give the fluffy egg a whirl and decide for yourself?
Giveaway time! The gang at VitaEgg has graciously offered to give one U.S. winner two boxes of the new flatbread sandwich to try. Just enter via the link below. Giveaway will be open through Friday. Good luck!
