4 Healthy Sandwich Recipes for Weight Loss | Gluten Free, Paleo, Low Carb

Healthy Sandwich Recipes

Hey Y’all!  Today, I’m sharing 4 Healthy Sandwich Recipes that you can quickly make for an easy on-the-go lunch option.  I think it’s safe to say that pretty much everyone loves a good sandwich.  But, the problem is that most sandwiches are made with refined white bread or non-organic wheat bread, which are horrible for your health and waistline.

The good news is that there’s a huge variety of different types of healthy breads to choose from nowadays – organic gluten free bread, paleo bread, low carb bread, sprouted bread, etc.

I’m a big fan of high quality gluten free breads because I’ve found that even if you don’t have a gluten allergy (like I do), many have trouble digesting gluten-containing grains and have developed a sensitivity to gluten over the years.  In this case, I would suggest using a high quality gluten free bread, such as Julian’s Bakery Almond Bread, which is 100% grain free, low carb (keto-friendly), and paleo friendly.

Now, if you’re not sensitive to gluten and you want to use a whole grain and/or wheat bread for these recipes, then I highly suggest opting for one that is organic and either sprouted or fermented.

A quick side note about breads today vs breads centuries ago…

People have been consuming bread for centuries, so why is it all of a sudden the enemy now?

Well, there’s a big difference between the bread we consume today vs the bread consumed by our ancestors.

For one, the wheat crops today are highly sprayed with toxic pesticides, such as glyphosate, which has been linked to digestive disorders, hormonal balances, and much more.  So, this is why I say choose organic, if possible.

And, secondly, years ago they would actually soak, sprout, and/or ferment their grains, which helps to break down the gluten protein and phytic acids, making the bread much easier to digest and absorb.

So, if you’re going to be use a whole grain bread or wheat bread, be sure to get organic and sprouted or fermented, if possible.  An example would be:  Ezekiel Breads.

Okay, lets jump right in and starting making these delicious, healthy sandwich recipes (VIDEO AT END OF POST).
