White bean and mozzarella sandwich
White beans can help reduce your risk of heart attack and stabilize your blood sugar, according to Livestrong.
Meatball parmesan sub
While most meatball subs are not healthy, you can make them healthier by substituting turkey meatballs for beef. This substitute cuts calories while maintaining the classic flavor. You can prepare the turkey meatballs by browning them in a pan first.
You can make this sandwich in advance. Wrap the sandwich in aluminum foil and, when you are ready to eat, reheat it.
Manchego, quince, and toasted walnut sandwich
Even though the name of this sub sounds fancy, it is essentially a grilled cheese sandwich—with a twist. And you can try this with your other favorite cheese plate combos such as blue cheese and green apples, or ricotta salata and honey!
Asian chicken salad sandwich
Buy a rotisserie chicken so you can make sandwiches to last you the whole week. If you want to make this lunch even healthier, you can prepare it using only the white meat.
If you want to improve your lunchtime health, add veggies as your side instead of chips. You could also stick to drinking water, as opposed to sodas, to cut down on calories.
