lately i've just been wanting a good sandwich for lunch, but my one track mind can usually only come up with PB & J or variations on that...
Can anyone suggest some good sandwiches? preferably no more than 300-400 calories... and preferably not containing peanut butter--- I must break the addiction!!! =)
I don't eat meat, but you can post your meat sandwich ideas in here too for other meat eaters
Here's one i came up with: whole wheat bread, mustard, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and mushed up red kidney beans (from can, rinsed and drained)
Any and all posts appreciated, thanks!
hummus on whole wheat pita with tomato and lettuce
black bean and salsa sloppy joe
veggie roll up with lettuce, chopped tomato, cucumber, peppers, sprouts etc., and maybe a slice of veggie cheese.
for lunch i usually have a smoked turkey (only 40 cals), kraft american cheese, and 2 pieces of whole grain bread. With just very little lite mayo on it. I guess it's your typical turkey sandwich. But it's not too bad for you if you just pick the right meat and bread!
I'm not too sure about the calorie count though... (I'm in the process of trying to break the number counting habit so I refuse to look it up! :D)
For bread, I like Country Hearth Lite whole wheat (45 cal per slice).
Oscar Mayer's lean shaved turkey, ham or roastbeef is 45-60 calories a serving (about 6 slices).
I also like leaf lettuce, tomato and pickles to flesh it out.
It comes out to less than 200 calories for a very nice sandwich!!
i thought of one...
toffutti cream cheese on wheat with cucumber, sprouts and tomato
I make egg salad with light mayo and mustard and I add onions on low calorie bread. I also make tuna with low calorie mayo, but I just realized I shouldn't be eating that more than 3 times/month due to the mercury content. I love hummus and tomato on sunflower seed Monk's brand bread (not sure if they sell that outside NY State though), or on pumpernickel bread. One more idea- a few slices of deli cheese on good bakery bread, sliced thin, with lots of vegetables to bulk it up (tomatoes, cukes, spinach, onions, etc.)
BTW, can you buy Tofurkey sliced like deli meat?
I like pineapple too
Sliced ham is low cal (its so thin). I like toasted slices ham, laughing cow cheese and tomato
My fav sandwhich is big chunks of white chicken breast, on cos lettuce, tomato, thick cucumber, with a bit of chilli sauce on the top.
How about this? Cut a bunch of grape tomatoes (the little ones) in half. marinate them for a minute or 2 in a balsamic vinager, throw in some parmesan, fresh garlic, chop up some red bell pepper, some fresh, raw green beans and throw it all in a pita pocket.
apple and honey is also delicious, and banana and nutella
