I consider sandwich the king of snacks. Sandwiches are one of the most popular mid-day choices among on-the-go individuals. I healthy sandwich should be properly portioned then only can you will not pile on weight, otherwise if you stuff your sandwich with loads of cheese, butter or mayo then chances are there that you will pile on weight.


A healthy sandwich should have loads of veggies and lean protein with whole grain bread. Amongst lean protein the good choices include chicken, turkey and tuna. When you are buying packaged meat check the sodium content of it. Most products that are packaged have high sodium content. So go for freshly cut chicken and low fat cheese or mayo. Low fat spreads are definitely better than the high fat ones. Try making mayo at home with curd instead of egg yolk.


For vegetables opt for leafy green vegetables instead of potato stuffing. Choose lettuce, spinach or Chinese cabbage. Don’t top your sandwich with more mayo or ketchup. Instead of tomato sauce opt for mustard or mint chutney with little honey. And last, but not the least, my advice would be make your own sandwich because all sandwiches made in the restaurants are loaded with calories and saturated fat because all of them have full fat mayonnaise and loads of butter and cheese.
