Granola and sunflower kernels add a nice crunch to this strawberries and cream breakfast sandwich.
 

Ordinarily we'd pass the "quick and healthy" cookbook section in lieu of something with more cheese, but if you're going to cook light, better take a page out of Better Homes and Gardens. These strawberry and cream cheese sandwiches pressed in a waffle iron are as attractive to behold as they are delicious. Don't worry, real waffles aren't going anywhere. We're just using their facilities.
