The warmer weather is re-introducing me to my love for sandwiches! Also, who says that sandwiches can’t fit into a healthy diet? They certainly can! Pack them with veggies, healthy fats and protein and you have yourself a balanced meal!

Carbs have gotten a bad rap over the past few years, but that doesn’t mean you need to give up bread for good! These healthy sandwich recipes are proof that you can eat better while still enjoying the taste and convenience!

Each one of these sandwiches pack in the fibre, plant-based protein and micronutrients. I also put in the creative thought to bring you different plant-based proteins for each of them, along with different flavour profiles – so you will never get bored!

If you’re a meal prepper like me, I would recommend assembling the sandwich before you are about to eat it. This is so the ingredients don’t make a soggy mess! Check out the above photo – this is how I packed all of the sandwiches in my fridge.

Without further ado, here are my favourite sandwich recipes! Tell me which ones you’d like to try and watch me make the on Youtube here!
