3 Secrets to Make Sandwiches Healthier

In a society that is really in love with fast food, those of us who want healthy foods for ourselves and our families are sometimes at a loss when it comes to finding healthy burgers and sandwiches. Here are three simple ways to prepare sandwiches and burgers that are both easy and nutritious for picnics, backyard barbecues or when you are on the go.

1.    When preparing burgers replace half of the meat with legumes. The added fiber will fill you up. 

2.    For the toppings use low-fat cheese. Also, add all the veggies you love to your sandwich. Veggies are good for you and help you stay full. 

3.    The bread for your burger or sandwich should be whole wheat. Whole wheat is much higher in fiber, vitamins B6 and E, magnesium, zinc, folic acid and chromium.
