 It’s very filling and its a healthy option. I used Alpine Lace® Swiss Cheese which is reduced fat, and they are perfect for snacking on the go or adding delicious flavor to your favorite sandwich.It’s made with high-quality ingredients, and it provides a good source of protein and calcium.

The Alpine Lace Swiss Deli Cheese is available in prepackaged slices, or at the deli counter where they can freshly slice it for you. I got the prepackaged slices at Stop and Shop. However, they also have it at any Walmart with a Deli or, if you are located in the North East, then  you can get it at ShopRite, Stop & Shop, Acme, A&P, BJ’s and many other grocery stores. You might want to call ahead to make sure the store carries the product though.

Chicken and Cheese Crostini is a great appetizer that can also substitute as lunch, so you can make it for the kids to take to school. It will help fuel their busy day, by providing the energy and deliciousness they need.
