Healthy sandwich options
MONROE, La. (KNOE) -Nov. 3 is National Sandwich Day, and nutritionist Jen Avis informs us about ways to make a healthy sandwich.
Avis says substituting your bread for something containing whole grains and fiber is a good way to make your sandwich healthy.
She said it might be hard to get children to eat vegetables like cucumbers, so a good alternative is to make them a filling with cream cheese and sour cream.
Avis added when preparing a sandwich, don’t always reach for the lunch meats because they are loaded with sodium. She said it’s best to look for lunch meat with no nitrates.
