Three Sandwiches To Try On National Sandwich Day!

Three Sandwiches To Try On National Sandwich Day!

By Chelsey Rose

I'm normally not someone who follows the 8 million randomly proclaimed “holidays” like “National Let's Laugh Day” or “National Find A Rainbow Day” because who has time BUT when National Sandwich day falls on a Sunday – you knooooow I have to dish out some of my faves.

I gotta be honest. I love a sandwich. They don't appear in my life these days as often as I'd like them to, especially compared to my life growing up.

No joke, I used to make mac-n-cheese sandwiches. Ever had one? No? That's weird…

It was 2 pieces of wonder bread topped with butter, and held together by a fresh made batch of warm kraft mac-n-cheese hahah. MMMMMM. I did the same thing with spaghetti.

I made tuna sandwiches, roast beef sandwiches, egg salad sandwiches, you name it. My junior year of high school I had a Pb&J for lunch MONDAY – FRIDAY while I watched Ellen Degeneres and wondered how I was going to pass calculus.

You could say I had an unhealthy relationship with sandwiches, or you could say I was living my best life. Who knows. All I know is that these days, a sandwich is a delicacy.

To make sure I don't go overboard though like the good ole' days, I make sure that I do a bomb homemade sandwich that actually compares to my 8-year-old self invented ones.

Here are my top 3 healthy sandwiches for National Sandwich Day:

Chickpea Salad Sandwich – by Purely Elizabeth

Wow. Just reading that makes me feel like I've come a long way haha. This is like a healthy chicken salad recipe, but vegetarian. This is the bomb for when you're craving a cold deli sandwich vibe. It packs a lot of protein and fiber and is actually great for meal prepping. You can eat it on its own also if you want to.

RECIPE:

1 (15 oz) can chickpeas, drained.

2 tbsp vegan mayonnaise.

1 tbsp dijon mustard.

1 tsp Himalayan sea salt.

1/2 cup celery, chopped.

1/2 cup dried currants.

1/2 cup of walnuts, chopped.

1 Tomato, sliced.

Butter Lettuce

gluten free bread.

DIRECTIONS:

In a food processor, combine chickpeas, vegan mayo, mustard and seat salt. Pulse 3-4 times so that consistency is somewhat chunky. Pour into a bowl and mix in celery, currants, and walnuts. Serve on gluten-free bread with lettuce and tomato.

Tuna Sandwich by – Chelsey Rose Health

I'm now going as far as quoting my own blog in my blog because I have issues and still think my sandwiches are effing bomb. This tuna salad though – like you can't go wrong. I can promise you'll love it, if you love tuna. I put it on a fiber cracker in this post but slap this in between two pieces of bread and have yourself a sunday sandwich.

Banh Mi Sandiwiches – By Chrissy Teigen

Bruhhhhhhhh. I can't deal with all the flavor in this thing. It's definitely more of the sandwich you make when you're having like a dinner party and want to get creative and dare I say fancy…? But it is SO. DAMN. GOOD. Just trust me, especially if you like asian food. We're talkin toasted baguettes, sliced pork, pickled vegetables, with a spicy sweet glaze.

Find the recipe right here and get to cooking.
