Guacamole is great, but how else can you enjoy cool, creamy omega-packed avocado? Sliced and stacked on whole grain bread, this versatile veggie makes the perfect sandwich filler—tender and buttery, but hearty enough for bountiful bites. Top with fresh tomatoes and baby spinach, with a swipe of vegan mayonnaise for tangy flavor.
Egg salad isn’t exactly elegant…but it can be. Stir in some baby spinach, diced avocado for extra creaminess and fresh, ripe raspberries for a touch of sweetness. Eaten as-is, atop crackers or spread on bread, this light, healthy dish is perfect for picnics, parties or lunch with a friend.
Just because greasy bread, gooey cheese and heavy mayo are no longer your thing doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a classic tuna melt! Ditch the diner version for this healthier alternative, made with sustainably caught, low-mercury tuna, Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise and vegan cheese, all piled atop whole grain bread and broiled ‘til golden brown and bubbly.
Some of us love hummus so much, using it as a dip just isn’t enough. Spread a thick layer on whole grain bread and top with lettuce for a quick and filling hummus fix! This veggie sandwich can be made in seconds — just use storebought all-natural hummus (hint: you can get it for less at Vitacost!). Bump up the nutrition with added sprouts, tomato slices or fresh toppings of your choice.
A mouthwatering sandwich first sold at Maine roadside stands in the 1970s, traditional lobster rolls are made with butter-soaked lobster meat stuffed into fluffy, white hot dog buns. Make a healthier version of this classic (and still popular!) lunch dish by tossing lobster meat with Greek yogurt instead of butter, seasoning with fresh herbs and serving atop a whole grain roll.
Light and fluffy, minus the mayonnaise in traditional egg salad, this spread makes a scrumptious sandwich filler or protein-packed cracker topping. The creamy texture comes from nutritious Greek yogurt, and avocado adds healthy fat to the mix. Stir in some spinach for even greater nutrition–it supplies hard-to-obtain vitamin K!
Give your old-fashioned tuna melt a gourmet makeover by mixing in pre-made pesto sauce and fiery roasted red peppers. Topped with mild Provolone cheese, these sandwiches are served open faced—making a tasty light lunch or the perfect companion to a bowl of soup or healthy salad.
