Healthy sandwiches for weight loss

4 min read

In order to optimise the health benefits of sandwiches, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) suggests there are a few things you can do when creating a sandwich.

Sandwiches, one of the most beloved lunchtime treats, offer an almost infinite variety of options and taste profiles that make them one of the most popular categories. Health reports that 47% of American adults consume a sandwich at least once a day, on average.

A new version of the USDA and MyPlate National Strategic Partners’ MyPlate food category guidelines has been released specifically to help Americans create healthier lunches (or breakfasts and dinners) by offering guidelines tailored specifically to sandwiches.

Starting with grains, according to the original USDA MyPlate recommendations, half of our grains should be whole grains, in order to make a healthy choice. Sandwiches can be easily made with whole grains, which are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, such as bagels, buns, tortillas, pitas, or whole wheat bread.

The amount of food you add should be as large as possible. Leafy greens, bell peppers, zucchini, and onions are nutrient-dense vegetables that are a good way to add more texture and flavor to a sandwich. You can use any fruit with a good combination of flavours, even fruits like sliced apples, grapes, or raisins.

The best protein to choose is one that has low fat content. There are also a wide variety of protein-rich, low-fat and low-sodium meals that you could have, such as mashed beans, canned tuna, or leftover chicken.

The spread needs to be changed. If you’re using traditional mayo as your condiment, it is fine, but you may want to consider switching to one with lower sodium content, saturated fats, and sugars if you want to make your dish healthier. Among the options, you will find nut butters, hummus, Greek yoghurt, and roasted garlic, to name a few.

Reducing expenses without sacrificing taste or fun is the key to saving money. When you start with leftovers or choose produce that is in season, you will be able to make a tasty sandwich and save money at the same time.
