Hey guys,

As many of you know, I take nutrition quite seriously, and I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for healthy sandwiches. The reason I'm asking is because I've pretty much only been eating smoked salmon sandwiches, with roasted red pepper dip/hummus, a leafy green, and my left over pulp from juicing, for the past two or so years; and I have it around three times a week.

I do have the odd grilled cheese sandwich, cheese and lettuce sandwich, or my jerk chicken mixture (slow cooker jerk chicken, caesar salad dressing, garlic, onion and seasonings) the odd time for a change, but I find it difficult to make anything else because I don't eat processed meat.

Most importantly, the sandwiches have to be a quick fix because I have limited time with my caregivers.

Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Cam

Chicken Salad
Poached or grilled chicken breast cut in cubes
Mayo
Salt
Pepper
Celery
Finely chopped cucumber
Chives
Tarragon

Cold (toasted bread) or grilled tomato, mozzarella and fresh basil leaves (pesto would work too).

Grilled vegetable sandwich (zucchini, eggplant, onions, peppers with alfalfa sprouts. You can use the hummus or tzatziki with this.

Tuna Sandwich
Mayo
Fresh dill
Chives
Celery
Salt
Pepper

Chicken or turkey breast, avocado, tomato, leaf lettuce.

Organic peanut butter, sliced banana, fruit jam.

You can also substitute wraps for the bread portion, hot/cold. Sandwiches are very universal. Infinite possibilities.

I almost forgot about Nutella. It is a chocolate, hazelnut spread which is very delicious. Think of it like peanut butter.

How about the occasional slow cooker beef instead of chicken, with some onions & peppers cooked with the beef then used as toppings on the sandwich ?

Where do you get your smoked salmon from?

Chicken salad sandwich:
Roast chicken, celery chopped course, serrano peppers chopped, cilantro, lite sour cream, dollop of mayo, Ship Madras Curry Powder.

Tuna Salad Sandwich:
White Albacore tuna in metalized pouch, then same as above.

Vegetable sandwich:
French Baguette, sliced cucumbers, sliced radishes,sliced tomato, sweet unsalted butter.

Steak sandwich:
Tri-Tip or Sirloin grilled over mesquite coals rare, onion mushroom gravy, French baguette.
Douse Steak with olive oil, whap with Kosher salt, cover with granulated onion and granulated garlic, cover with course ground black pepper then grill over charcoal.

Saute onions until (brown) carmelized, add mushrooms, saute until brown, add massive sub-lethal dose of chopped fresh garlic (not from jar), deglaze with red wine, or dry vermouth and reduce.

Slice steak thick, and cover with onion mushroom gravy.

Not particularly healthy, but my goodness, this is a great sandwich.

Hamburger Sandwich:

5% ground beef, preferrably Kosher or Halal (no blood). Chop fresh mushrooms fine, serrano peppers and Fetah cheese, work into chopped beef with Kosher salt, granulated garlic and onion. Heat a heavy duty sauteeing pan (Rubber Maids are great) wipe with olive oil, place beef ball (1/2 lb+) onto pan and press down. Place sliced mushrooms and sliced sour pickles on pan. Turn over beef when it has a nice crust on bottom, cover burger with sharp cheddar and cover pan.

Serve on sesame roll. Tell me if this isn't the best burger you've ever had.

Hello wheelz, I see your avatar is now that famous crack smoking murderer, Huey Newton. Excellent choice for you!!

I suppose your choice of Huey is an improvement over your previous avatar choice of Che Guevara, a communist mass murderer.

Good work!

Wheels, the most important health factor in a sandwich is the choice of bread or wrapping. I use flatbread wheat wraps as a good source of fiber. I roll up meat or peanut butter with fresh veggies or pickles. Mustard only for low-cal condiment.
Quick, easy, and good!

You know what I like lately? Take pesto and smear it on two slices of grainy bread. Lay on some turkey breast or rotisserie chicken breast. Slap some havarti cheese on it. Top with your choice of greens (I like spinach) and/or pickle slices. Devour.

Thank you very much for the excellent suggestions, guys! Nearly every one appeals to me, and I'll give it a go at some point (with the exception to Ken's P&J suggestion smile ).
