Healthy sandwich ideas for a nice filling lunch. These can be packed up and brought to work! Recipes are high in protein and healthy fats. Just what you need to stay full for a while!

Sometimes we don’t physically have time to make a nice healthy lunch meal, it just takes way too much time! That’s when assembling a quick healthy sandwich is just the solution you need.

Today, I thought I would share with you multiple sandwich recipes that are quick to make. However, they don’t taste like some of those cheap sandwiches you find in a supermarket!

This is a perfectly acceptable lunch you can share with your friend. And trust me, they’ll be impressed!

A lot of these sandwiches are high in protein and healthy fats. They’re extra flavorful, filling, and purely delicious!

I am personally not a big fan of sandwiches, so making them taste extra special is very important! If you’re looking for new ways to assemble your sandwiches, you’re totally in the right place!

    The Egg Salad is the only one I’d eat. Four of them at least contain avocado, hardly varied, especially if one’s not that keen on them. Some things a little simpler would be far more useful for most people.

  2. Henk says:

    I like how, with a few ingredients in the fridge, you can make a great sandwich for every day of the week! And I love sandwiches.
