Carbohydrates have and always will be a part of my life. That said, I am always looking for a viable option to create a healthier sandwich, or pizza, or any type of creative meal that features a form of bread! Although I usually stick to the standard issue whole wheat bread, sometimes it is fun to branch out with other options. Whether it be a breakfast Mc-muffin, lunch sandwich, or dinner "pizza", Thomas Light Whole Grain English Muffins fit the bill perfectly!
They are soft, nutty, and chewy at the same time, making the perfect heat and eat treat with some jam, or a more hearty fare. I have experimented with these muffins for breakfast, toasting them with a bit of cooked egg whites and cheese, for lunch smeared with hummus and veggies, and for dinner, which is my personal favorite - topping each muffin half with a bit of sauce, some low fat mozzarella cheese, and veggie topping, and you have the ultimate comfort food, pizza, with a nutritional punch and many less calories!
Each 57 gram Thomas Light Whole Grain English Muffin provides 100 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat (2% of the daily value), no saturated fat, 170 mg of sodium (7% of the DV), 6 grams of protein and 24 grams of carbohydrates which includes 32% of the DV for fiber and less than 1 gram of sugars. The ample fiber is the trick in these little gems; they kept me full for hours, regardless of the toppings I chose to add!
The ingredients list is quite lengthy, starting with unbleached enriched Wheat Flour (so it's not whole grain) and I was a bit surprised to see sucralose (Splenda) in it. I purchased a 6-pack of muffins for $3.49, roughly the price of a good (slightly expensive) loaf of multi-grain bread. Although I do not use them with the frequency of my beloved whole wheat, they freeze beautifully, making them an excellent and long lasting buy!
