Forget Fast Food: Health Starts at Home!

We love sandwiches of all shapes and sizes: paninis, subs, burgers etc. They taste delicious and are easy to make. Our biggest concern is eating sandwiches we didn’t make at home. We wonder, what am I really consuming? How much sodium? How much saturated fat? Any trans fats? (We hope not!).

So, what do we do to still eat yummy sandwiches without the nasty ingredients, you ask? Make them at home! One of our favorite homemade sandwiches to make is a delicious Spinach & Avocado Sandwich with egg & turkey. Yummy right?…read on!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1 egg (with or without egg yolk)
  • 1 slice of Turkey
  • 1/4 cup avocado


On toasted bread layer the spinach, turkey, egg and avocado. Feel free to mash some of the avocado to spread on the bread. Oh yes! Don’t forget your pickles! :)

Nutritional Information:

This sandwich is only about 300 calories (more or less depending on the amount of avocado & turkey you add). More than half the calories of sandwiches from fastfood chains like Quiznos, Arby’s, & Burger King can have 1000+ calories. It contains 18g protein, 13g fat (healthy fats), 12g sugar, and about 500mg of sodium (more than half the sodium compared to fast food chains that have up to 2000mg sodium per sandwich (this amount can easily be reduced by not adding the turkey or egg).
