When you think of sandwiches and salads you tend to think they are the healthier choice on a menu, but sandwiches and salads can quickly turn into a nutrition nightmare.
When making a sandwich at home, pick bread with a high NuVal score, such as whole wheat breads and thin bread. Then pick up either lite mayonnaise, mustard or both. Spread about a teaspoon of mayonnaise or mustard over a slice of bread. Place one slice of cheese and meat onto your bread, the cheese and meat should be about an ounce each.
Last, but not least load your sandwich with vegetables, like onions, tomatoes, lettuce and pickles. Avoid stuffing your sandwich with meat and cheese; stuff it with fresh vegetables with a little lite spread of your choice.
