It’s National Grilled Cheese Day! Here are some healthy grilled cheese sandwich ideas from our members and managers!
“I love grilled cheese. I usually have it on whole wheat bread with Swiss cheese, tomatoes, and raw onions. Yummy.” –Alexandra F., Third Ave.
“Smoked gouda and baby spinach leaves on whole wheat and 1/2 cup tomato soup.” –Lia E., 42nd St.
“Rye bread with low-fat mozzarella and Weight Watchers Mexican cheese mix. Put together and grill on a panini maker. So good!!” –Nina M., 42nd St.
“Bake a sweet potato. When cooled, cut length-wise slices. Take two slices and spread one side of each with coconut butter. Use one slice of fat-free American cheese (or cheese of choice). Put between sweet potato slices, grill away, and enjoy.” –Joanne F., Plainview
“This recipe is a different take on grilled cheese. You need one whole wheat tortilla, 1/2 cup fresh tomatoes, 1 oz. low-fat cheese (cheddar or colby), and fat-free salsa. Layer it all on the tortilla and then broil!” –-Meredith R., Yonkers
“Sprouted gluten-free bread, tomatoes, mustard, olive oil spray, and two slices of low-fat cheese. Delicious!” –Crystal B.
“Open-faced Ezekiel bread (one slice) with low-fat Swiss, tomato slices, and oregano. Sear in covered pan or heat in toaster. Ezekiel bread is an organic sprouted whole grain bread that is a complete protein and weighs in low on the glycemic index. It comes in wheat, cinnamon raisin, and my favorite, sesame! I get mine at Trader Joes, but it’s also available at Whole Foods, Super Stop & Shop, as well as Costco.” –Ilise Reilly, Manager at Lucille Roberts Jamaica
