GREAT SNACK IDEA: Wasa Bread, Laughing Cow Cheese, Mustard, & Cucumber

  • by Michelle

This is one of my favorite things to eat when I need a quick snack to keep me going mid-morning between clients.

I don’t have a name for it, but here’s what it entails:

2-3 Slices of Wasa Bread-Light Rye  (80 kcals,3g Protein, 20g Carbs, 0g Sugar, 4g Fibre, 0g Fat Per Serving)

1 Wedge of Laughing Cow Light  Spredable Cheese (35 Kcals, 2g Protein, 2g Carbs, 1g Sugar, 0g Fibre, 2g Fat Per Serving)

Mustard To Taste

2-3 Slices of Cucumber per piece of Wasa Bread

Instructions are very simple:

Spread an even distribution of Laughing Cow Cheese on each piece of Wasa Bread, then drizzle a litle bit of mustard on top of each piece, lay sliced cucumber on the top and ENJOY :)

ALTERNATIVE OPTIONS: 

  • Instead of using wasa bread this could also be done with whole wheat bread or even better Ezekiel Bread (http://foodforlife.com/sprouted-grain-difference/ezekiel-4-9.html)
  • I occasionally make a meal out of this snack by adding 1/2 can of tuna (adds more protein!) on top of the Laughing Cow Cheese and mustard before adding the cucumber slices on top.
  • If you want to add more “good fats” to this recipe try spreading 1/2 an avacado on top of the Cheese, then mustard, then 1/2 can of tuna, then cucumber slices =AMAZING! (When I make it this way I normally have to eat it with a knife and fork like an open faced sandwhich)

TRY IT OUT AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK, OR IF YOU COME UP WITH OTHER WAYS TO SWITCH UP THIS RECIPE! THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS :)
