MUFA FLATBREADS

How about calling it the “Flat-Out Fabulous MUFA Feast”? This catchy name emphasizes the focus on monounsaturated fats (MUFAs) while also highlighting the versatility and health benefits of using whole grain flatbreads as a base. Plus, the playful tone adds a touch of fun to the meal prep (or appetizer prep) process!
