TIPS:

  • Choose 100% Whole Wheat or 100% Whole Grain breads.
  • By spreading butter, oil or spread on the bread directly, and then browning the sliced bread on skillet, less will be used.
  • When using a higher saturated fat option such as butter on the bread, use small amounts and choose a reduced fat cheese option to balance out the saturated fat total.
