Sandwiches - How to Make Your Sandwich More Fun to Eat
It doesn't take much to get stuck in a food rut, but even sandwiches can be made more fun to eat with just a little bit of time and creative effort in the kitchen. These are some ways to take your normal sandwiches and spice them up to get out of that food rut!
Put things you wouldn't normally think of as sandwich food in there. Instead of just peanut butter and jelly, make a breakfast sandwich with eggs, or apples and peanut butter, avocado, cucumber, sprouts, grated carrots or zucchini, sliced up hot dogs, olives, turkey and gravy, fruits (strawberry, blueberries, apples, bananas) with peanut butter and honey or agave.
Use things other than bread as your end caps. For instance, core an apple, slice it hamburger style, and then put peanut butter in between two slices. Walla! You have a peanut butter sandwich. You can also use crackers, large cookies, pancakes or waffles. For fillings, you can put breakfast foods like eggs, ham, grated carrots, or you can go dessert style and put in chocolate, peanut butter, honey, agave, fruit like applies, bananas, or strawberries. The possibilities are endless!
Get some fun cookie cutters and cut your sandwiches into fun shapes--this isn't just more fun for kids, eating food that looks pretty really does make it look a lot more enticing.
Get a panini maker and make great toasted sandwiches! All this takes is spreading a little butter or oil on each outer side of the sandwich, putting it in the press, and walla! You have a delicious toasted sandwich that adds a lot of fun and excitement to a meal that would have normally just been okay.
All of these simple things you can do will really help spice up your food routine and get you excited about eating delicious and nutritious foods that are easy to make and bring with you.
