Healthy Lunch Sandwiches

I’m a big sandwich fan… I mean it’s deliciousness between bread! Today on the HGG Cooking Show I’m sharing how to make 3 yummy plant-based sandwiches with Alvarado Street Bakery sprouted breads! I am often asked what brand of bread I buy when I make sandwiches, avocado toast, peanut butter toast and so forth! Alvarado Street Bakery is one of my favorites and I share more about why I love their bread and bagels in today’s new video. If you’re a sandwich fan like me you’re going to want to watch!!
