Nature’s Pride Hearty Wheat with Flax

As a member of the Tastemaker program through Foodbuzz,  I occasionally receive products that have been selected by the Foodbuzz  team to try out.

Last week I received Nature’s Pride newest bread, Hearty Wheat with Flax.

One pretty neat fact about their new bread is it’s the first natural bread to be baked in 100%  olive oil. It is also one of the firsts to provide a good source of  Omega 3 – ALA that comes from the flax seed. The only thing that has me stumped is whether the flax seeds have been ground or not, we all know that they need to be ground in order for the nutrients to be absorbed.  Hmmmm…

Here’s a look at the nutrition label for 1 slice of bread

Now on to the taste and sandwich. Sometimes I have to admit I love just a slice of toast and butter with a cup of green tea as an afternoon snack or perhaps for breakfast I’ll add some almond butter and a sliced up banana. Either way this bread tasted great, although I’m not sure if I can actually taste the difference with it being baked in the olive oil, but none the less I really enjoyed it.

My husband is a huge fan of sandwiches, especially on the weekends when we have a little more time to sit down and enjoy lunch together with the girls. So this weekend we whipped up a sandwich that included something that we each like!

Ham and Cheese Toasted Sandwich

  • black forest ham
  • turkey bacon
  • avocado
  • tomato
  • swiss cheese

Layer the ingredients between two slice’s of Nature’s Pride Hearty Wheat with Flax bread, start with the cheese and end with the cheese.  Yes, the more cheese the better! lol Toast in a skillet until all that cheese is nicely melted. Enjoy!




How do you enjoy sandwiches, toasted or plain? I am a toasted girl all the way!
