Avocado egg salad sandwich

A few times a month I like to try new recipes and food items. This month I wanted to make this avocado egg salad sandwich and be able to try it with this new bread I saw at my local supermarket. Given the fact that it is suppose to be higher in calcium and vitamin D, which I am low on, I figured, why not?
The bread was free of high fructose corn syrup and trans fats, which are ingredients I do not eat. After making my recipe I was very please with the results. The mixture of ingredients was superb and the bread itself was very tender and soft.
The best part is that Sara Lee’ Soft & Smooth White made with Whole Grain Bread delivers an excellent level of calcium—25% daily value—in just two slices.
For someone like me, this is quite important. I am one of those people that always visits their primary physician every year. Being a clinical dietitian and physician assistant student, I always have to keep my health in check.
Anyways, every single year my labs are always remarkable except my Vitamin D and sometimes my calcium which are normally low. I don’t know why that is. However, knowing that there are certain items at the store I can purchase that will help me bring my values up is something that I will for sure try.
Also, when you have a child who doesn’t like or can’t tolerate milk, calcium-fortified baked goods can be a lifesaver. It’s important to build healthy and strong bones during childhood—and maintain them into adulthood—and consuming recommended amounts of calcium is key to doing so.
I have found that there are certain packaged goods, like the bread you’d buy at the grocery store that are calcium fortified. You will also be able to find baked goods like bread, flatbread, muffins, buns, rolls, etc. that are also calcium fortified. Venturing to your local grocery store to find these items at the bakery isle can be fun and also beneficial to your health.
According to the FDA, a product with 10% of the daily value of calcium per serving is considered to be a “good source of calcium”.
If you are one of those people that also like to eat out, you will find that Subway’s sub bread contains the same amount of calcium as a glass of milk in just a 6″ piece of bread, and is fortified with vitamin D.
Well I hope you find a good source of calcium with the type of bread you will find to make this avocado egg salad sandwich. I am sure you will be pleased with the taste and simplicity of it.
