Healthy Sandwich Ideas For a Delicious Lunchtime

Healthy Sandwich Ideas For a Delicious Lunchtime | theskinnyfoodco

Want a healthier, low sugar/low carb bread? Our brand new Bread Mix easily allows you to enjoy bread without excessive sugar and carbs! Plus, with only 44 calories per serving and gluten free, you have no excuse to not pack it full of your favourite fillings…

But, before you start filling the sandwich, it would help to know how to make the bread right?

Here’s our recipe for success:

Heat the oven to 170°C.

  1. Break open 4 eggs into a bowl and whisk them into foam with a hand mixer.
  1. Add 150g of cream yoghurt to the eggs.
  1. Add the Skinny Food Co Bread Mix and mix thoroughly.
  1. Leave the mixture to stand for 2 minutes and then shape the bread or buns.
  1. The mixture can be shaped better if you moisten your hands with water.
  1. Place the mixture (loaf) or (buns x4) on a baking tray covered with baking paper.
  1. Bake for 60 minutes (loaf) or 35 minutes (buns) at 170°C.
  1. After baking, remove the mixture from the oven and let it cool. Store in an airtight contain or enjoy slightly warm!

Now you’ve made the bread, it’s time for the main event! Here’s a few high-protein, healthy ideas to help get you started.

 

Breakfast Bap

There’s no better way to start the day than with eggs, but why not also have them for lunch? Simply fry an egg and a couple of reduced-fat bacon medallions before putting them inside a roll and covering with our Tomato Ketchup Skinny Sauce. This weekend classic is perfect for a filling midday meal!

 

Tuna Salad

This high-protein fish is the perfect sandwich filler. While a classic tuna mayo might be filled with fat – try using 0% Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise and adding some chopped spring onion and sweetcorn into the mix. Spread this over the bread and add lettuce & tomato before sandwiching together.

 

Smokey BBQ Chicken

Using our Smokey BBQ Sugar Free Sauce, this sandwich is delicious served warm or slightly toasted. Roast chicken breast strips, pepper and onions with some chipotle seasoning for around 25 minutes in the oven. Once cooked, place in a bowl with a huge squeeze of BBQ sauce – mixing to make sure each piece is coated. Add this into a roll with some fresh salad and a small spoonful of sour cream or Greek yogurt for a spicy lunchtime twist on fajitas.
