Daily Dilemma: My Sandwiches are Getting Boring

Do you get sick of PBJ?  Or maybe everyday is turkey and swiss on whole wheat bread?

Jared is a big sandwich fan.  He's also a man with big muscles and a high he goes through two sandwiches per addition to breakfast, a Muscle Milk, a ProBar, and a protein shake...all before dinner.

This puts him at upwards of 10 sandwiches per week, day in and day out.  Obviously it saves us a lot of money to bring our own food each day (in addition to being much healthier), but eating healthy is no fun if there's no variety.  I try to mix up what I make for him as much as possible.  Variety is the spice of life...and ensures a broad range of nutrient intake.

Here's one little off-beat sandwich for your munching pleasure:

Spicy Cilantro Sandwich

What you need:
  • Spicy black bean bread (Costco) or other Mexican-inspired bread
  • Chipotle jack cheese
  • Ham
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Lettuce
What you do:
  • Slice 2 or 4 slices of bread depending on loaf size...if it's tiny, you'll want 2 smaller sandwiches.
  • Add 1 slice of cheese and 3-4 slices of ham
  • Rinse and chop cilantro
  • Rinse and dry lettuce
  • Add cilantro, lettuce, and olive oil if desired
  • Pack in a ziplock bag and be the envy of your coworkers!
