I love sandwiches, especially this veggie sandwich, because they are tasty, convenient, and perfect for the work-day lunch.

Sandwiches can also be super nutritious; that is if you opt out of the traditional not so healthy cold cuts.  Deli meat, even if 97% fat-free, can be loaded with unhealthy preservatives and additives, such as nitrates.  Studies show that individuals who regularly consume red meat cold cuts that contain nitrates have an increased risk of developing cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

This veggie sandwich is 100% free of processed meats, low in calories, high in fiber, and loaded with an array of health-promoting vitamins and minerals.

BALANCE IT OUT: This veggie sandwich goes great with a cup of soup, a salad, or a piece of fruit.  You can also just eat half the sandwich for a nutritious snack of only 138 calories.
