This sandwich has all the melted, cheesy flavor of grilled cheese—with added benefits. Whole-wheat bread provides filling fiber, avocado adds healthy monounsaturated fats and a punch of antioxidants, and sun-dried tomatoes bring a dose of lycopene. Extra-virgin olive oil replaces butter and incorporates heart-healthy fats into this lunchbox staple.
