Embracing a Healthy Family: Oroweat Nutty Grain Healthfull Bread is Delicious

Oroweat Nutty Grain Healthfull Bread is Delicious

Oroweat. Bread Perfected.

Last night, I tried Oroweat's new HealthyFull bread in the Nutty Grain variety and LOVE it!  As with all of Oroweat's products, I love them.  I've been a fan of the Sandwich Thins for a long time due to the reduce calorie and carb aspect.  I'm a yo-yo dieter always trying to reduce cals or carbs so that is important to me along with getting some whole wheat.  Even though two slices have more calories then the Sandwich Thins, the calories aren't that much more at 80 calories a slice and the slices are HUGE!  Last night, I just made a piece of toast with butter and loves the flavor along with the toasted sesame seeds.

Nutty Grain

Today, I had a low fat ham sandwich which was delicious.  I've also been on a kick of eating more fiber which Oroweat's Nutty Grain is perfect.  I also like that there are no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.  Who really wants to have a loaf of bread around for a month without it breaking down?  I have a huge step to make it completely to healthy but I feel taking baby steps is the answer and Oroweat is helping me.  Now for my husband who is one of those people that you can't even open their minds to change, he hated it but he's an all enriched, processed flour bread man.  I myself, prefer whole wheat bread and now with sesame seeds.

I'm going to try this sandwich recipe this weekend:
