A home made sandwich? What’s so exciting about that?
Well, nothing, really.
But I’ve been trying to share more about what I’m eating these days, and a plain ol’ sandwich has been a staple. And it comes in many forms.
We have completely stopped using mayo. (except in my very rare need for a tuna sandwich) But I have to have something on the bread so we’ve been using Laughing Cow light cheese. My two favorites are the Mozzarella Sun-dried Tomato and Basil (35 calories per wedge) and Garden Vegetable (45 calories per wedge)
So this is what is on these sandwiches:
-A skinny everything bagel (I just used the Fred Meyer/Kroger brand because they are a little cheaper, taste and calories are the same)
-Laughing Cow Cheese (I only use about 1/4-1/3 of the wedge, depending on my mood)
-Turkey. This is usually a turkey from the deli. Depending on the brand you can use about 6 slices, which is more than enough!
-Ham, again from the deli.
-tomato (from our garden, or sometimes I use Romas)
And that’s it. A couple of times I have microwaved a couple pieces of turkey bacon to add on. And my husband typically adds cucumbers, onion, peppers to his.
Typically a side for my sandwich is some strawberries, carrots, cucumbers, or a babybel cheese.
