Can grilled cheese be healthy? It is all in the approach. If you opt for bread that offers complex carbohydrates and make room for healthy fats in your diet, there is no reason a grilled cheese cannot be part of a healthy diet. An open-faced grilled cheese cuts down on the carbs and calories, and while this recipe features a fried egg, you can always go poached instead.
With the right choice of bread, this sandwich can be everything you need. You get fruit, complex carbs, healthy fats, and protein. Add some spinach, and you get your veggies, too. This delicious sandwich is a real treat for lunch, and the ingredients can easily be repurposed into other dishes, cutting down on your grocery bill.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can go with the filling listed, or opt for anything that appeals to you. Stuffed avocados are quick and simple to make, ideal for a busy work-at-home schedule. However, the shrimp filling in this recipe certainly gets our mouths watering.
