When you look at a slice of bread, what do you see? - The ends to your sandwich? A side order to your scrambled eggs?

How about a whole grain vehicle that can be paired with endless toppings and consumed as a snack?

According to a survey conducted by the Whole Grains Council, 37% of consumers eat whole grains at breakfast, 27% at dinner, 22% at lunch, and just 14% as snacks.

However, with toast topping options like veggies, fruits, lean proteins and nut butters – nutritious whole grain snacking options are limitless!
