Cheese. You may think cheese is a no-no on a healthy sandwich, but if you stick with a single slice or, even better, grate on a hard cheese (like parmesan), the protein and calcium can be a great addition.

Condiments. Mustard and vinegar are always safe bets, as are healthy-fat-based condiments like nut butters, hummus, pesto or olive oil. Mayo may not be the healthiest, but here’s a healthy, vegan mayo alternative that tastes even better!
