Last 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 (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!
