Strawberry sandwichesNataliia Leontieva/Shutterstock
When I was in high school I specifically went to a now-defunct restaurant only to eat a version of this sandwich; its demise doesn’t stop me from enjoying it still. Not to mention, there are bunches of science-backed reasons you should be eating more bread. Simply place three-grain bread on a plate and spread it with farmer cheese. Top evenly with strawberries and drizzle with honey. Add black pepper, if desired.

Certainly a snack most beloved by children, but most of the adults I know also love these little bites. The flavors and textures cover all the bases: crunchy, creamy, smooth, sweet and tart with a touch of cinnamon spiciness. Plus, the swipe of peanut butter is a great way to sneakily pack more protein into your diet. To make them, spread apple slices with peanut butter. Top with banana and sprinkle on some sugar, cinnamon and, if desired, blueberries.
