Skinny Veggie Sandwich


Skinny Veggie Sandwich


Sometimes you just want a sandwich. No explanation needed, because we all know that sandwiches are just plain good. Slap your favorite fixings between two slices of bread, and just like that, you have yourself a meal. A delicious meal at that.

Now, if you have been skipping out on sandwiches for dietary concerns, you’re in luck, because this skinny veggie sandwich is a weight watching-sandwich lovers dream. I cut out the mayo, ditched the gluten, and loaded this sandwich up with piles of fresh spinach, tomato, cucumber, red onion, avocado and oil-free hummus. A little freshly ground black pepper on top, and you have yourself a refreshingly light veggie-filled sandwich, full of healthy fats and nutrients.
