Today's Priase: Arnold (or Orowheat) Sandwich Thins

Today's Recipe: Sandwich Ideas using today's Praise product (I'm getting clever, eh?)

Arnold Sandwich Thins, distributed by Orowheat on this side of the Mississippi are MAYBE the greatest invention ever. They are only 100 calories (1 point!) and can be used in maybe 10,000 different ways. I eat at least one a day. They are also all "natural" which we all know means absolutely nothing, essentially, but they don't have HFCS, and we all know how I love products with no HFCS :)

Today's "recipe" is a sammy I came up with using an AST (Ardnold Sandwich Thin) and some fresh organic veggies from my delivery box o' produce (more on that later, yes I keep saying that). Here goes:

2-3 thins slices of tomato
1/4 avocad sliced thin
FF or 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese

You can toast the AST if you want, but for this case I like it untoasted. Also, this is best made right before you eat it, else the tomato makes things soggy. Put a schmear of cream cheese on each half of the AST. Put the tomato, avocado, and a little sprinkle of S&P on there and enjoy. Its YUM.

Also, I had an epiphany while I was in the grocery store and had to share. In lieu of the cream cheese, a wedge of Laughing Cow Light Garlic and Herb makes an excellent substitution in this sammy. MMM!

Here are some other ideas:

Breakfast: Toasted AST with Peanut Butter and thin slices of Banana
Fry an egg and use AST as a dipper, one of my FAVS

Lunch: Toasted AST with a little reduced fat mayo, a slice of nice ripe beefsteak tomato, S&P
Tomato sauce (or a slice of tomato), mozzarella cheese, some minced garlic, and some parm to top if off. Stick it under the broiler for 5. Mmmm healthy pizza!

I realize this is only 5 of the apparent 10,000 ways to use an AST. Maybe my goal in life should be to write a book on the 10,000 ways that exist. Hmm, this is an interesting prospect. Maybe I could strike it rich and quit this engineering gig. And snowboard all day.

I'm off to Boston a week from today!

Oh and speaking of HFCS, thanks to my friend Vanessa, my new goal for the week is to track down marshmallows that DO NOT contain HFCS. Now taking bets on whether such a thing even exists.

  1. I don't know what HFCS are, but I buy all my marshmallows (I buy like 1/2 pound a month- standing order, mind you) on.....guess where?.....you'll never guess it!.....are you serious?....you have no idea?......


    They're all-natural and likely HFCBGBs free.
