There are good healthy sandwiches ideas to ensure one eats healthy including four I habitually fall back on including herbed chicken salad, steak baguettes, Caesar salad bagels, and Tuscan tuna. First, the ingredients for the herbed chicken salad are a tablespoon of tarragon, three tablespoons of canola mayonnaise and Greek yogurt, one table spoon of lemon juice, salt to taste, two cups of chopped rotisserie chicken, and a quarter cup of sweet onion. Next, one simply incorporates all of the ingredients into a bowl and mixes well. Add the chicken salad to your choice of bread. I personally recommend toasted rye bread with two or three pieces of lettuce, and a dill pickle on the side to top off the sandwich.

If looking for a hardier sandwich, pull out some flank steak to build a mouthwatering treat. Building the sandwich includes 12 ounces of beef sirloin steak, salt and pepper to taste, two tablespoons of canola mayonnaise and pesto sauce, one cup of baby arugula, and a couple slices of red onion and tomato. Preparing the sandwich is simple, pan seer the steak for two to three minutes on each side of the thinning sliced steak, and then let it stand for four to six minutes. Grab a whole grain baguette toasted and begin building the sandwich with the aforementioned ingredients. I enjoy the onions cooked with the steak, but others prefer the onion right out of the refrigerator to obtain a bit more bite to the sandwich.

A lighter, good healthy sandwiches is created with a bagel and Caesar salad. I like to use an onion bagel when building the sandwich, but any variety will do. Simply add Caesar salad with dressing to a bagel with a tomato, couple of slices of red onion, and most importantly, a few shavings of Parmigiano-Reggiano and I have a wonderful, quick and satisfying lunch.

Finally, try a Tuscan tuna sandwich when looking for an alternative to the everyday ham or turkey option. Use a bowl to mix together a quarter cup of chopped fennel bulb, red onion and basil, two tablespoons of drained capers, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil, two six ounce cans of white tuna in water, and one chopped roasted red bell pepper which can be purchased in a jar. I use eight ounce slices of sourdough bread toasted, yet rye and wheat bread will taste well with the Tuscan tuna just as well.
