How To Build A Healthy, Filling, Delicious Sandwich
Bread. Pick 100% whole grain bread or wrap for fiber without the refined, white, unhealthy flour. Not sure if you should go for gluten-free? Click here to find out!
Protein. Lean protein is the way to go for a healthy, filling sandwich that will keep you satisfied for longer. Top picks: turkey, eggs, canned tuna or salmon, grilled steak, hummus or other bean spreads, tofu.
Vegetables. Load um on for belly-filling fiber and guilt-free bulk. Dark leafy greens, brightly colored peppers, tomatoes and carrots give sandwiches an antioxidant boost.
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!
