Did I make a healthy bruschetta with strawberries just so I could eat some delicious fresh bread? Um, maybe. I’m not telling. I am not going to tell you how my eyes roll backwards with pleasure at the first bite of fresh bread. Oh no, it is not as if I think fresh bread is a gift from heaven. It isn’t as if I cannot resist eating fresh bread. Oh man, I am totally busted!
I could write an ode to good fresh bread. Alas, I have found a way to make it even better by topping it with a delicious healthy bruschetta. The secret, well two secrets, to good healthy bruschetta is mixing sweet and savory flavors AND fresh basil and garlic. This mix of these ingredients is irresistible and gives my piece of bread some healthy benefits and nutrients. I do not have to feel so guilty about eating the bread. When I take a bite, not only do my eyes roll back but healthy Bruschetta with strawberries is so good that an audible “mmm” escapes my lips. Yummy in my tummy.
Give it a try and let me know what you think. Any eye rolls? Any “mmm’s”?
