You must be having your favorite too, do comment and let me know about your preferences.



The Healthiest Sandwich


Sandwiches have always been seen as a kind of fast food. After all, they are quick and easy to make: you take two slices of bread, spread something tasty on them, place some stuff between them, and they are ready. They serve as delicious playtime treats for kids and adults alike, they are easy to carry around, and even easier to eat. But are they healthy? Well, this depends mostly on what you use to make them. Let's take a look at how you can turn a trivial sandwich into a health powerhouse.

The bread


The over-refined and over-processed white bread is considered by many to be the enemy - and rightly so because it has a lot of carbs and a small nutritional value. For a healthy sandwich, you will need a quality bread with a lot of fiber and vitamins and as little carbohydrates as possible. Sprouted whole wheat bread is one of the best choices - it has a ton of fiber, it has minerals and vitamins, and slow-acting carbs that are released gradually to keep your hunger at bay for as long as possible.

The spread


Mayo, ketchup, peanut butter - these are all delicious spreads to put on your bread. But for the healthiest sandwich, you need to forget about them due to their sugar and fat content. Instead, take a ripe avocado, peel it, mash it, spice it up to taste, and spread it on your bread. Avocados are high in fat, but their fat content consists mostly of monounsaturated fatty acids that make them a healthy choice. Besides, they are pretty delicious, too.

The in-between


What you put between the slices of bread-and-spread is perhaps the most important part of a sandwich. Here, the options are endless. If you are a vegetarian, you can fill it with tofu (it has a low calorie content, a lot of fiber and protein). If you are not, you can fill it with delicious, low-fat roast beef for the best - and healthiest - result.

And don't forget the vegetables. For a delicious and juicy playtime treat, you need to add plenty of those, mixing various tastes and textures for a perfect - and healthy - result. Most people agree that sliced tomatoes and lettuce work best - these two add fiber, crunch, and juice to your sandwich. To make it even healthier, you can substitute tomatoes for kumato - a sweeter variety of a reddish-brown color and higher vitamin A and C content - and lettuce for romaine lettuce, a healthier, more nutritious variant that will add a bit of bitterness to the mix. Feel free to add sprouts to the mix for even more flavor.

Here you go - the perhaps healthiest sandwich you could make. What would you add to it?
