Build a better-for-you sandwich today. If you're not sure where to start, try one of these simple and satisfying recipes on for size.
For a healthy take on a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich, layer lean turkey bacon, fresh romaine lettuce and tomato between two pieces of whole grain toast.
Replace mayonnaise with a garlic-cucumber spread that is made by mixing diced cucumber and 1/8 teaspoon of garlic in 1 tablespoon of fat free cream cheese. Make it a TBLAST by adding slices of avocado and sprouts.
So much better with less bread - open up the traditional peanut butter and jelly by replacing that spongy white bread with a piece of sprouted grain toast.
Spread 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter or almond butter over the toast while it is still hot and then layer fresh berry compote.
To make the compote, mix 2 cups of chopped berries with 2 tablespoons of orange juice and a drizzle of honey in a small saucepan. Cover and cook slowly over medium to low heat, stirring often, until the fruit has turned into pulp. This is a great sandwich to serve at breakfast or lunch, but be sure to come prepared with an extra napkin or two.
Fresh and delicious, make a Mediterranean-inspired sandwich by filling a whole wheat pita pocket with hummus, artichoke hearts, fresh spinach, roasted red pepper, cucumber slices and kalamata olives. Need cheese? Add a sprinkle of feta, opting for a reduced fat or fat free brand.
