Avocado Chickpea Sandwich

Jun 17, 2020 | Nutrition

This avocado chickpea sandwich is perfect to take on the go. Made with tomato and pickles, it suits both vegetarian and vegan diets.

Did you also grow up thinking sandwiches were unhealthy? Because of the processed bread, the amount of salt or sauce, ready-to-buy sandwiches can actually be bad for you.

But just as with other types of food, sandwiches can be made healthy! All you have to do is choose fresh, high in fiber ingredients and 5 minutes to put them together for a delicious combination.

Since bread is the main food in there, I recommend you buying it whole grain or whole wheat. It will provide you with a higher amount of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and is basically better for your digestion and overall health.

Also, always check labels and stay away from breads (and food in general) that include preservatives or sugar.

The number of ways you can make healthy sandwiches are unlimited, but today I am sharing with you one of my favorites.
