What Can I Use in Place of Bread if I Want to Eat a Sandwich?

  1. Tomato Slices: Layer part skim mozzarella and basil on a one tomato slice. Top with another tomato slice.
  2. Cucumber Boat: Hollow out a cucumber (peel first if you don’t tolerate the skin). Fill inside with tuna salad or chicken salad (prepared with plain nonfat greek yogurt in lieu of mayonnaise).
  3. Red Pepper Boat: De-stem and De-seed a red, green, or yellow bell pepper and cut in half. Top with a dollop of hummus and then add turkey slices.

  5. Grilled Portobello Mushroom Cap: Fill with shredded chicken and a dollop of guacamole.
  6. Lettuce Wraps: Use a leaf of butter lettuce, romaine lettuce or collard greens and fill with your favorite sandwich fillings (turkey, lean ham, chicken, roast beef, lowfat cheese, ….)
  7. Apple Slices #1 : Layer turkey or lean ham and lowfat cheese between 2 apple slices.
  8. Apple Slices #2: Prepare PB2 (mix PB2 with a little water to mimic consistency of “real” peanut butter), then stir in some shredded carrots . Serve between 2 apple slices.
