We end up spending the entire diet dreaming about the day we can bite down on a crunchy and melty cheese again.
In this article, we are here to tell you that you can have a healthy lifestyle and still enjoy your grilled cheese too.
The Right Bread

We know what you are thinking:

The answer should be:
- Bread is full of protein and healthy fats.
- My healthy lifestyle can include bread without gluten.
- I can meet my macros and still enjoy a cheese.
- Grilled Cheese is a health food.

3Avocado Toast Anyone?
This grilled cheese take avocado toast to a whole new level. The first step is to toast your bread. The spread avocado over the outside of each piece. Layer on a slice of cheese and place the bottom piece in the pan cheese side down to begin toasting. You’ll want to get that cheese nice and crispy. Now fill the middle of your grilled cheese with more cheese, grilled chicken, crumbled bacon, a spread of cream cheese, and a slice of tomato. Pop the lid on the avocado side up and place a piece of cheese onto the spread avocado. Flip once the first side is toasty and toast the second side. Enjoy this crunchy cheesy madness filled with healthy fats and protein.
