I was obviously very hungry when I made my tuna sandwich earlier this week. I mean, look at this beast.
It was perfect, and definitely hit the spot. I’m such a sucker for tuna sandwiches. Something about them makes me crave potato chips too, I just need some crunch when I’m eating tuna I guess. Which is why I decided to load up this sandwich with crunchy vegetables the other day…to get my mind off the crunchy “other stuff”. It worked, for the most part.
The best part of this beast of a sandwich is how GOOD it is for you. Look at all those veggies! And that bread…it’s a Smart Bagel. Good stuff (100 calories, 6g fiber, 5g protein), look for them. They will most definitely make you feel smart, I promise.
(disclaimer: your sandwich will not look pretty after the first bite. sorry.)
