Sandwiches

Sandwiches are quite easy to make. Simply choose healthy breads or pitas or tortillas that are low in fats and salts and choose lots of vegetables for your sandwiches.

Avoid highly processed deli and sandwich meats. Instead, use lean and skinless chicken or other poultry. Instead of fats or mayonnaise on your sandwiches – which can increase the fat content of you sandwiches considerably – choose to flavor your sandwich with fresh sweet onions or low-sodium mustard or salsa.
