What's a gift you can give that doesn't cost any money?

Some days, turning the oven or stovetop on is just too much–especially on hot summer days. Enter delicious, nutritious options like this Caprese Sandwich! Sandwiches are truly build-your-own meals, as it is extremely easy to leave out one ingredient or add another.

As is, this sandwich includes protein, dairy, vegetable and a grain! That’s a super healthy combo.
