This past summer, I started using apple slices as my “bread.” You get a great crunch, lots of flavor and you cut the calories in half. This makes a great pre-practice, after school snack too.

My favorite is honey mustard, cheddar and turkey (shown here with chicken because I’m out of turkey) but ham and brie is amazing too. Forego the meat and just stick with the cheese.
