I love sandwiches, the very fact that you can make a sandwich as healthy or as sinful as you want :D.. Also you can eat them at any time of the time.. breakfast, snacks, dinner… Isn’t that versatile.

I am eating a lot of sandwiches for breakfast these days however I find very less recipes that can suit my requirements these days viz no cheese, no butter, no potatoes but still tasty πŸ™‚ A lot surfing, a little bit from this recipe, a lit bit from that and I have discovered my own set of such healthy and low cal sandwich recipes. Here are the two which are my favourite.

Avanti hopefully you can use them for your snacks too and Sols hope peanut likes them too.. Let me try and do some recipes that I make for Ojas next week :D, only point is that I will have to click pics

I really love this sandwich, I used to love mayo based sandwich but since I cant have it now I found this closer and healthier option. Personally I think that curd is the best way to have milk based products. Extremely healthy, maximum amount of calcium and great bacteria for the stomach..
