What kind of food do you usually make when you’re pressed for time? The quick and obvious answer: sandwiches. They are our family’s go-to option for lunch or dinner in a rush – but what if you’ve grown bored of them, in their usual formulation? Is there a way (any way!) to revamp your sandwiches while keeping them healthy, quick and easy to prepare?
These questions have preoccupied me lately, as I’ve thought of ways to bring food novelty into our household. Thankfully, experimenting with food isn’t difficult in a city as culturally diverse as Chicago: you just have to visit a few grocery stores, to look around, to think about the colors, smells, and flavors you encounter, and to imagine the foodie permutations and possibilities. After several such grocery wonderland excursions, I’m happy to report that I have found a new and valuable sandwich friend: the Flatout Foldits!
