Power up your lunch sandwich!
Pack a variety of superfoods between your slices of bread and you’ve got a healthy sandwich that’s tasty, too! The standouts in this sandwich are avocado, with its healthy fats, and tomato, with lycopene and antioxidants. Whole grain bread offers fiber and our healthy spreads give you that zest you crave without the extra calories.
