Tomorrow, November 3rd, is National Sandwich Day. Sandwiches are not just for lunch. You can make sandwiches for any meal. I love breakfast sandwiches. My favorite is egg, cheese, and pork roll (yes pork roll!) on an English Muffin. A sandwich can also be a perfect snack, especially after a workout. My favorite post workout sandwich is a simply peanut butter and grape jam on whole wheat bread.
This weeks Monday Meal Idea post is a sandwich theme. I asked some of my dietitian friends to share their favorite sandwich recipes. Many are vegetarian. You don’t always have to have meat in your sandwich. Here are 11 healthy sandwich recipes for you to try.
