August – National Sandwich Month

Tip: Be creative, make a sandwich

For a snack or for a meal
Try a bagel or tortilla
Pita pocket-what a deal.
English muffin or some sourdough
Lahvosh and matzo too

Try some tuna tossed with yogurt
That’s a treat for something new.
Some turkey strips with apricots
Or beans just mashed with cheese
Shredded carrots with some raisins
That’s a taste that’s sure to please.
Make a sandwich, keep it healthy
Leave the mayo off the top
Sandwich meals for busy people
When you don’t have time to stop!
What a healthy choice, just stuff it
Protein, carbs, and veggies too
For breakfast, lunch or dinner
A sandwich-it’ll do!

  • For freshness, wrap sandwiches in waxed paper and overwrap with foil or wrap in plastic wrap and seal in a ziploc bag.
  • Wrap condiments (tomato slices, small containers of fat-free mayonnaise or mustard, onions, etc.) in a small baggie and add to sandwich just before eating to prevent “soggy sandwich syndrome.”
