In my last post, I did some fun sandwich art with Nature’s Harvest Bread.
In this post, I’m going to share a delicious sandwich idea using Nature’s Harvest Stoneground Wheat Bread. It has 25 grams of whole grain (yes!).
First, you’ll need some of Nature’s Harvest whole grain breads. We’ve tried out the light and honey wheat flavors, so I decided to use the Stone Ground Whole Wheat with 25 grams of whole grain in this.
I love grilled cheese, but decided to kick it up a little with turkey, tomatoes, and guac. So I cut the tomatoes.
I enlisted my oldest child to cut the cheddar.
Then, we laid out the bread and built the sandwiches assembly line style (there were 7 hungry family members for lunch that day). We skipped the turkey on one sandwich (my oldest child isn’t always a fan of any meat).
I added guac.
And then I threw it in a griddle pan with some cooking spray.
Once they were all golden toasty brown, took them of the heat.
I sliced and served each sandwich with some baked blue tortilla chips.
I got rave reviews from my usually harsh critics (my picky eaters usually give me a fuss about everything).
I was thrilled that they were enjoying a healthy whole wheat bread that had 25 grams of whole grain.
Sandwich Idea: Grilled Turkey Cheddar Guacamole
- Whole grain bread
- 1 to mato
- Cheddar cheese
- Turkey breast
- For each sandwich:
- Layer cheddar, tomato, turkey, and guacamole.
- Toast each sandwich over a low flame until golden brown
Nature’s Harvest Honey Wheat (which we used for our Sandwich Art post) is on rollback for $1.97 nationwide- exclusively at Walmart.
I love that there is a wide variety of Nature’s Harvest breads, every one of them baked with whole grains and at least 8g per serving. They are all a good choice, and the company’s slogan is “The easy choice for whole grains.”
I try to give my kids as many whole grains as possible.
- 57% of American consumers eat whole grains at least every two weeks in their diet (#2 in their list of BFY eating habits after “Reduced/No Fat”);
- 56% of American consumers are already trying to add whole grains into their diet (#1, Fiber and Protein #’s 2 and 3 following)
- “According to a recent nationwide survey conducted on behalf of Nature’s Harvest bread, nearly 75 percent of moms have employed creative methods, such as styling food into fun shapes, to get their children to eat more nutritiously.”
- “In our recent survey of moms with children ages four to 13, we learned nearly half of moms are concerned about their children’s nutrition and that 52 percent consider whole grains one of the most important nutritional considerations when purchasing food at the grocery store”
