Every year as the kids prepare to go back to school, I find myself trying to come up with new and creative, yet still healthy, ideas for their lunches. Though I've seen a vast improvement in the menu offered at their school, I still feel there's nothing quite like a fresh, homemade lunch. Most of the basics are already covered: dried fruit, fresh juice, and usually yogurt or kefir to sneak in some probiotics. With those aside, it's time to focus on the 'main course' of lunch. Knowing I still need to incorporate some protein in there, I decided to go with my Cucumber Turkey Mini-Sandwiches made using Foster Farms All Natural Sliced Turkey.
With 11 grams of protein and only .5 gram of fat per serving, Foster Farms All Natural Sliced Turkey is the perfect choice for sandwiches or to be incorporated into snacks and appetizers. Foster Farms All Natural Sliced Turkey is 98% fat free and made naturally with 100% turkey breast meat with no chemicals, preservatives, artificial ingredients, colors, or added nitrates/nitrites. Even the Slow Oven Roasted Turkey Breast has 35% less sodium than the average sliced turkey breast. It's not often you find a premium lunchmeat with so much added love, and so little other additives.
Foster Farms All Natural Sliced Turkey comes in two great flavors: Slow Oven Roasted and Honey Roasted & Smoked. Typically, I prefer the Honey Roasted & Smoked because I love the rich, sweet flavor, but for this recipe, I decided to try the Oven Roasted.
