Sandwiches are a great lunch staple, but making them healthier can be a challenge. Today we’ve assembled our favorite Half Your Plate tips to make a healthier yet delicious sandwich!

  1. Pile your sandwiches high with fruits and veggies. Here are our favorite combos:
  2. Sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, and dark leafy greens are the perfect addition to a tuna fish sandwich.
  3. Add strips of green or red peppers and arugula to a turkey sandwich. We also love adding apples and lettuce to turkey!
  4. Spread mashed avocado on whole grain bread and add sliced tomatoes. In fact, swap out higher fat spreads for nutrient packed avocado. Try this Avocado Egg Pita for some inspiration.
  5. Chop tomatoes, cucumber, olives, and feta and wrap in pita for Greek salad on the go.
  6. Add veggies to your grilled cheese!
  7. Mix up a quick coleslaw of cabbage, carrots, and broccoli and pile it high on your next pulled pork sandwich.
  8. Toss leftover roasted vegetables onto a bun spread with hummus for a delicious and filling sandwich. We love to use our Grilled Chopped Vegetable Salad as inspiration.
  9. Leftover stir fry? Toss it into a wholegrain tortilla wrap for a quick and portable lunch.
