Strawberry jam cheese wedges and tea sandwiches
I'm a snacker, through and through. There are granola bars and whole wheat crackers in my pantry, there are apples and bananas in my fruit bowl, and strawberries and The Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges in my fridge. I just want to be ready for whenever snacktime decides to rear its delicious head.
At one point, though, my snacking included a jar of chocolate spread. I would eat it by the spoonful, straight from the jar. So I threw the jar into the trash can. That's the right thing to do. Right? I mean, that jar certainly doesn't appear in the mindful-snacking area.
After that, because I had to get creative and reinvent my snacking, I found my two new favorite snacks. They are cheesy, they could be sweet or savory, and they are absolutely, undoubtedly better for you than inhaling spoonfuls of a chocolate spread.
Strawberry jam-covered cheese wedges
These strawberry jam-covered cheese wedges are sweet, creamy, crunchy and cheesy... that's the formula for a perfect snack. So simple and so good!
Also? I counted the seconds until I could go and make some more. I may or may not have eaten the entire batch. Just sayin'.
As with most good things, delicious, mindful snacks start with cheese wedges. The Laughing Cow Spreadable Cheese Wedges are deliciously rich and creamy, and available in eight flavors that can be paired in countless creative combinations that you will want to sit and savor for hours.
Which brings me to my next point.
Did I mention that we’re making not one, but two intriguing, delightful snacks? True. We're going to take our snack a bit farther and create little tea sandwiches that you can have for a light lunch, a perfect snack or even serve it as an appetizer. The possibilities are endless, obviously.
Laughing Cow tea sandwiches
Just like all other tea sandwiches, these start with a flavorful whole-grain slice of bread topped with The Laughing Cow Spreadable Cheese Wedges, a perfect slice of an English cucumber, and a delicious, juicy slice of tomato to pull it all together. Do you really need convincing? Of course not.
- 8 whole grain tea sandwiches bread slices
- 8 The Laughing Cow Creamy Original Swiss Wedges
- 8 cucumber slices
- 8 tomato slices
- Drizzle of balsamic vinegar (optional)
Besides being completely delicious, ultimately these nibbles can help us deal better with hunger and help us make more sound choices at our next snack-attack.
But, for a satisfying snack experience, savor each and every creamy bite of The Laughing Cow Cheese; it's incredible. And so are these snacks.
