I have an affinity for sandwiches and so I'm always checking out new whole grain breads. The other day, I saw Arnold Healthfull Hearty Wheat Bread on sale, so I decided to try it.
The taste is typical of other Arnold Breads I've tried before - slightly sweet and soft in the middle in just the right way. The only other thing is that the crust of this bread is a little too ... crusty (ha) - I mean hard. When the bread isn't toasted, I could handle it, but when toasted, it gets even harder and I ended up cutting it off - and I hate wasting food.
Each slice weighs 5 grams less than Arnold Healthy Multi-Grain Bread - 38 grams (compared to 43 grams) and provides 80 calories, 4 grams of fiber (16% of the daily value), 2 grams of sugars (2 grams less than the Hearty MultiGrain Bread) and 5 grams of protein.
I've been a busy bee working on a new project to bring to the web - and it involves food products of course. Oh - and it involves bread, so I went off to the store and decided to pick up Arnold Healthy Multi-Grain Bread.
As I sit here writing this review, I'm tearing apart bits of the bread and using it to dab up some Greek yogurt I'm also testing for a future review - and that's breakfast. Clearly I love this bread. The slices are big and soft - perfect to make a filling sandwich for lunch, and the taste is slightly sweet and a little nutty. The crust is studded with sesame seeds, which the kids claim they don't like on their bread, but I like the added texture. And I think using black and white sesame seeds makes this so much more interesting.
Each slice provides 110 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat, no saturated or trans fats, 160 mg of sodium (7% of the daily value), 4 grams of fiber and sugars plus 5 grams of protein.
Lately, all my sandwiches have been made using Arnold 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins - which should tell you how much I just adore 'em.
First, let's get this out of the way - the round slices of this bread/ bun hybrid are thin, way thinner than we're used to. But I'm not complaining as this has really made no difference in my sandwiches. They still hold together very well - although I'm not in the habit of making triple decked jumbo beef burgers, so I wouldn't know about that. What I do know is that my Quorn Turk'y Burger on this 100% Whole Wheat sandwich thin was just as good as ever; I use them as taco shells, hot dog buns and as the base for mini-pizzas. There is a hearty, bready & slightly sweet taste that's just crazy good.
Oh my! Arnold Select Multigrain Sandwich Thins are absolutely delicious and I'm sure you'll be all over them once you give them a try. They look similar to flat-breads, although these are a lot thinner. The texture of the bread is soft and it toasts great, giving you something warm and flavorful. When toasted, they are slightly crispy and go great with cream cheese - or our favorite Laughing Cow Light Spreadable Original Swiss Cheese Flavor Wedges, but they are also great for making your own pizzas, amazing for grilling and you can put anything in them to make your own sandwich creations or a healthy burger like the folks over at RonisWeigh.com.
Without any doubt, you can call me a Carboholic. I love it all: pasta, bread, rice, oatmeal ... yum!! But although I have never been a part of the Atkins bandwagon, I am sensible enough to know that enough is enough in terms of these goodies. Therefore, I am always on the lookout for a nice lower calorie, high nutrient sandwich bread. Arnold's Bakery Light Wheat Bread fits that bill to a T. With 80 calories per two slice serving, there's no need to worry about making your sandwich "open faced".
For a "light" bread, the taste did not disappoint. It is dense, nutty, and slightly sweet, paired perfectly with either a nut butter and jam, or lunch meat. My standard turkey sandwich had new flavor, and the added fiber did its job, satisfying me for hours.
