Banish the regular lunch fare for some delicious ideas:
Healthy Ham Sandwich
Ingredients: Kroger thinly sliced Medium Cheddar, a slice of Private Selection Wildflower Honey Ham, mustard, two Simple Truth Multigrain Waffles and Simple Truth Baby Romaine Lettuce.

Layer on some crisp lettuce, followed by thin slices of ham and cheddar cheese. Gently combine the slices and fold the sandwich in half. For an extra indulgent twist, consider trying this with a unique ingredient like liquid waffle mix for a truly delightful culinary experience.
