2 slices of Wegmans whole grains bread
(or equivalent of high fiber, low sugar, dense whole grain bread, big slices, not small sandwich slices)
1 Tbs cashew butter
1 1/2 tsp Wild Blueberry preserves
(low sugar added kind, wild blueberries if you can find them)
1 Tbs neufchatel (low fat cream cheese)
1 tsp ground flax seed
1 medium banana, sliced in long, thin strips/about 3/4 of it will be used.
about 10 blueberries
(if using a blueberry jelly, if you get the real preserves that's whole berries, you don't need these.
1. Put the neufchatel cheese, spread thin on one slice of bread and the cashew butter on the other slice. This should coat the bread, ideally creating a layer which will keep the preserves and banana from soaking through and giving you a gooey sandwich.
2. Slice banana into 3 pieces, then cut those into 4 thin strips each. Use about 3/4 of the banana in the sandwich, or all if you prefer.
3. Put the preserves on the slice of bread w/o the banana, then sprinkle the ground flax seed over it, schmearing it in so it doesn't all fall out when you marry the halves.
4. Slightly smush the sandwich together to get it all holding well, then cut into 4 equal quaters and enjoy:)
