Cheese: Because cheese is high in fat and calories, it’s best to use it sparingly. Opt for a reduced fat cheese or try including a little grated cheese or mixing a small amount of cheese in with other fixings.
Produce: Be generous when filling your sandwich with vegetables and fruits. Try something different like cucumbers, spinach, kale, roasted red peppers, asparagus, pineapple, melon, or grapes.
The sandwich has long been popular as a quick, convenient way to enjoy a tasty meal. They’re a great way to serve up leftovers or any odds and ends taking up space in your refrigerator. Sandwiches also can be a healthy choice if prepared while keeping an eye on nutritional value.
Being creative with your ingredients can help you build sandwiches that are good for you, delicious and never boring. But make sure the ingredients in your sandwiches complement one another and blend well. Avoid using too many contrasting flavors.
Try the following ingredients next time you hunger for a sandwich:
Meats: Lean meats like turkey, fish or chicken are high in protein and low in fat and calories. They also taste great. For a vegetarian option, try using a few tablespoons of hummus instead of meat.
Breads: Use breads high in fiber and low in calories. High fiber breads will keep your hunger satisfied longer. Try wheat and whole grain breads or English muffins, tortillas, pitas, and rolls for a different taste and texture.
