I found a healthy sandwich place. From what I understand, it’s owned by doctors. I am sure you must have eaten there at least one time.

They have a page on their website telling us what ingredients are no longer in their food product. I was really impressed how a big corporation would do something like that.

My wife gets a turkey sandwich on the roll of her choice with lettuce, tomato and onion while I on the other hand get the veggie with everything except for the avocado. When I get it home, I put brown mustard on mine.

You can get sandwiches low in fat. They make it how you like it with fresh bread they make themselves each day.

Now, we don’t eat there everyday. I don’t usually eat any bread, but theirs is always fresh. I am not sure I could make as good a sandwich as they do at home. I have them put every vegetable they have on it and am amazed at how they pack it all in that roll.

Know what’s in your food

I think my sandwich is about as low fat as one can get. It’s all vegetables and I don’t have them put any oil or cheese on it. It is also relatively low sodium. Keep your eye on eating healthier. For example, make sure what you eat is mostly plant based whole food. This way, the sugar, fat and sodium will be naturally low.

‘The amount of sodium needed to maintain homeostasis in adults is exceedingly low (<500 mg) compared to the average intake of most Americans (>3,200 mg) [1 NIH]’.

It’s recommended we reduce our sodium intake to no more than about 2300 mg per day (about 1 tsp.) but, it is said the amount consumed per person averages 3200-3400 mg and over a day.

Furthermore, the FDA suggests if you have high blood pressure or hypertension, to reduce your sodium to no more than 1500 mg a day. Too much sodium can bring damage to organs such as kidneys, our arteries and parts of the brain [2 accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/InteractiveNutritionFactsLabel/sodium.html]’.
