Simple Swap: Sandwich Thins

21 Jun

I love carbs. Love Love Love. Needless to say, I eat a lot of bread (and pasta and cereal and rice…). But recently, I picked up a package of Oroweat Sandwich Thins.

Instead of 90 calories per slice, like other whole wheat bread, these are 100 calories for both ends of your sandwich. And unlike pita bread (which is delicious, don’t get me wrong), they’re still soft and even a little fluffy.

Another bonus? You don’t waste the end slices of loaf bread that no one likes.

The Oroweat brand also makes sandwich thins in honey wheat, multi-grain and whole wheat fill ’ems (for hot dogs and sub sandwiches).

The sandwich thins are enough for 8 sandwiches, fewer than an entire loaf of bread, and they’re a little more expensive but only by a few cents.

They’re great for brown-bag lunches (which I bring to work every day) and probably as hamburger bun substitutes, but I don’t think they could completely replace loaf bread (what about toast with jelly? These thins would probably turn into crackers if you put them in the toaster).

    They’re really good for mini pizzas too!
