As a mom today, I want to balance my family’s diet with plenty of delicious, nutritious whole grains, and it is so simple to do by adding my favorite Nature’s Harvest® Bread to my grocery basket at Walmart.
I love that my family can count on at least 8 grams of whole grains in every serving. There’s no artificial flavors, colors or high-fructose corn syrup (which I actively avoid for my family), and ALL Nature’s Harvest varieties carry the whole grain stamp. Nature’s Harvest Honey Wheat, is on rollback at Walmart for $1.97 nationwide.
Whether Made with Whole Grain White, Honey Wheat-or any other variety, moms be sure it’s made with whole grains because it says Nature’s Harvest.
Nature’s Harvest just hosted a Sandwich Art Facebook Contest, and celebrity chef / mom Kelsey Nixon was a judge.
Here’s my take on Sandwich Art.
I picked up some Nature’s Harvest Loaves at Walmart.
I decided to make a sandwich with chocolate peanut butter and using bananas and blueberries for decoration.
I took a glass and used it to cut a circle out.
It was a thick glass, so it made a cool sealed circle. It was domed on one side and flat on the bottom.
I cut out tiny triangles next. I did this freehand. While I had intended to make this a flower, I decided to make it into a sun.
Then I cut out two flowers.
Then I topped the sun with a blueberry happy face and as the stems of the flowers.
I topped the flowers with small pieces of bananas.
