Grilled cheese doesn’t exactly qualify as health food, but choose the right ingredients and it starts to transform.
Instead of stacks of American cheese (which isn’t even really cheese, yuck), we use a portion-controlled serving of grass-fed cheddar.
Instead of white bread, we use sprouted whole grain.
Throw on some tomatoes and fresh pesto for vegetables and turkey for protein, and suddenly you’ve got a balanced meal. No magic wand required.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
There’s nothing inherently wrong with gooey, delicious melted cheese on bread; it’s really just about the kinds (and amounts) of ingredients you’re using. This recipe helps you pick the healthy ones, and by adding turkey and tomato, you reduce the amount of cheese you’re getting in one serving. It can still be gooey, though.
