VERY Thin Sliced Bread

Whole Grain Pepperidge Farm Very Thin Sliced BreadLast week I came across Whole Grain Pepperidge Farm Very Thin Sliced Bread. I’m sure it’s not new but this was the first time it caught my eye. Reading the nutritional information I was pleasantly surprised to find 3 slices were only 110 calories, 1.5g of fat and 3g of fiber. That’s just 2 points!

immediately I imagined a club sandwich. I haven’t had a club sandwich in years! I totally forgot about them! But just think, 3 slices of bread, some turkey bacon, lean turkey, lettuce and tomato. You can really create some healthy alternatives with this bread.

So that’s what I did. Here’s what I chow-ed down for lunch. All that and only 4 points!! Here’s the breakdown with my point logic…Whole Grain Pepperidge Farm Very Thin Sliced Bread - sandwich

  • Whole Grain Pepperidge Farm Very Thin Sliced Bread (2)
  • Squirt of honey mustard (0)
  • baby spinach leaves (0)
  • tomato slices (0)
  • 3 slices ultra thing lean ham (.5)
  • 4 small slices turkey pepperoni (.5)
  • 1 wedge laughing cow cheese (1)
  • 1 sugar free sweet pickle (0)
  • handful of carrots (0)

It was totally satisfying! There is just one thing slightly annoying about the bread and you can see it in the picture. Since it is so thin, when you toast it there tends to be curling. It’s not a big deal but I thought I should mention it.

I’ve also used this bread in the morning to have a slice of toast with low sugar jelly. It’s small but it sure makes a great side to my omelet!

    Hi Roni,

    I just wanted to share a find I had a few months ago allowing me to enjoy sandwiches too! It is bread mad eby Sara Lee and each slice is only 45 calories – can you believe that? It’s really good too. I’ve found it at Walmart and King Soopers, but maybe the website offers a product locator. Here’s the link http://www.breadrules.com/products/delightful.html

    Hope you can find it,

    P.S. The fat is really low and the fiber is about 2 grams per slice, making for 1 point for 2 slices. Yep, 1 point for two slices.

    I’ve given up buying bread because all the ones I find easily have HFCS in them and I’m not down for hunting around for specialty breads that are HFCS-free and low-cal. I miss bread, though :( we don’t have this very thin bread here, either, I’m in California and can’t find it. I’ll keep looking and check out the ingredients if I find it. thanks!

    Aunt Millie’s has a bread called “Healthy Goodness Light” that has 35 calories per slice, 1 g fat and 3 g fiber. It doesn’t have HFCS; it does have sugar. It is also whole grain.

    hi roni, i love your website. there are great recipes and awesome motivation on here. i have a suggestion for the bread. i have been using this thin version for a while. someone at my ww meeting brought it in for us to look at. i found that keeping it in the fridge and toasting on a lighter setting can help avoid the “fold” my kids call this the “taco bread” because frankly, it would curl up and look like one(sort of) thanks again for all of your inspiration. have a great day!

    I’ve been lurking here for a while, but I had to comment after reading the link to your omlet recipe and say that no, you don’t in fact have the only toddler who eats peppers like apples. My 19 month old likes sliced green peppers dipped in salsa. Of course, he also like sauteed spinach and kale chips, so I guess he’s just all around crazy!

    I’ve been loving your blog, thanks so much for all the work you put into it. It’s a great resource, and my toddler is definitely enjoying the green lite bites with your toddler.

    I’m not a Club sandwich kind of girl but that does look yummy! I’ll have to keep an eye out for that bread when I go shopping next. Not sure I can get the husband to eat it, he was just complaining about the Sara Lee DeLights. Great find and thanks for the tips and pic. That looks like a HUGE sandwich for only 4 points :).

    Mmm…yumalicious! My mom used to make club sandwiches when I was a kid, usually around Christmas time. She’d use fresh Christmas ham and turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo. LOADED with calories and fat, but it was so yummy. I like your version better!!!
