Whip up one of these sandwiches or wraps for lunch this week. These sodium-conscious lunches include complex carbs like whole grains and vegetables and have low amounts of saturated fat, so they’re a great fit for a diabetes-friendly eating pattern. Recipes like our Avocado, Tomato & Chicken Sandwich and 10-Minute Tuna Melt are satisfying and tasty midday meals that can help you meet your nutritional goals.
Avocado, Tomato & Chicken Sandwich
In this healthy chicken sandwich recipe, the avocado is mashed to create a healthy creamy spread.
This variation of a classic sandwich uses mayonnaise, but not where you think! Mayo is brushed on the outside of the sandwich in place of butter to make the sandwich golden and crispy as it heats in a skillet. Plain Greek yogurt takes mayo’s place in the salad—along with crunchy celery, roasted red bell peppers and scallions—for a satisfying lunch with less saturated fat.
