|Some Low Sodium Sandwiches|
“I want an egg sandwich for lunch,” my husband announced a few days ago. No problem. Most sandwiches are part of a “Pull Out” meal — Pull Out of Pantry, Fridge, or Freezer. If I’ve got the right stuff on hand, I can put together a pretty good sandwich lunch or dinner in no time at all.
That’s why I try to keep an arsenal of low sodium products specifically with sandwich based meals in mind. Here’s what I usually have squirreled away:
From the pantry — cans of low sodium tuna (Trader Joe’s, Bumble Bee, Starkist, or Chicken of the Sea); freeze dried chives (Penzeys, Spice House, or Litehouse); unsalted potato chips (Kettle or Tim’s Cascade); an assortment of spice blends (dill weed; curry powder; Penzeys Forward, Mural of Flavor, & Sunny Spain); canned fruit (in juice); California Lavash Whole Grain (90 mg./sheet)
|Some Low Sodium Sandwich "Fixings"|
Produce — fresh seasonal fruit; cherry tomatoes; celery; baby carrots; cucumbers
Leftovers make good sandwich fillings too. Things like meatloaf, roast chicken or turkey, roast beef or pork. Nothing beats a meatloaf sandwich. Or a chicken salad sandwich flavored with curry or dill. How about roast beef or pork with a touch of mustard and horseradish.
