Substitute beans and veggies in meals like chili. To save money, go for the dried bulk beans.

Swap a whole grain veggie wrap instead of take-out sandwiches and chips. Whole grain tortillas can be filled with beans, veggies, or if you like, tuna or turkey. Keep an eye our for gluten-free tortillas as well.

Swap Lakewinds whole grain Trail Bread with your favorite nut butter instead of plain white toast. Fiber and protein help with energy and feeling more full longer! Peanut, almond, sunflower, cashew butters all taste great on bread.
