Turmeric Egg Sandwich on Dave’s Killer Bread

Did you know that tomorrow starts American Heart Month? Yup, there’s an entire month dedicated to raising awareness for heart health and heart disease–aka the number #1 killer in the United States.

Turmeric Egg Sandwich with Swiss Chard & Feta on Dave's Killer BreadAs a Dietitian, I’m thoroughly embracing this month as a way to promote healthy habits. I’ve even decided to start it a day early with this recipe for heart healthy breakfast. This Turmeric Egg Sandwich contains three ingredients that are guaranteed to keep your ticker happy and healthy:

  • Dave’s Killer Bread 21 Whole Grains and Seeds
  • Turmeric
  • Swiss chard

Research has shown that three nutrients are vital to keeping your heart healthy–fiber, omegas and antioxidants. The combination of ingredients in this breakfast sandwich provides plenty of all of these nutrients. Let’s take a deeper look at each component:

Dave’s Killer Bread 21 Whole Grains and Seeds: this organic whole grain bread consists of a mixture of 21 whole grains and seeds. Each slice has 5 grams of fiber (or 20% of your daily value), 5 grams of protein, 250 milligrams of omega-3 (about half the amount you should have in a day), and 22 grams of whole grains. That’s a ton of nutrients for only 120 calories!

Turmeric: I don’t think I can say enough good things about turmeric. Not only is it a beautiful golden color with a peppery flavor, but it’s also loaded with antioxidants and has been associated with fighting cancer and treating arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease.

Swiss chard: I love this leafy green because it’s packed with antioxidants, including Vitamin C to keep your immune system healthy and fight off winter colds. Swiss chard grows best in the winter, and it’s naturally colorful, vibrant and not too chewy.
