Sandwiches

Cuban sandwich

The only way you can be sure that the bread is healthy is by making your own! Purchase a bread maker from Bread Machine World today and start baking your own bread instead of buying store-bought ones. You’ll see–homemade bread tastes and smells better. Besides, they have more nutrients! Making your own bread will also save more money and energy.

  • Chickpea of the Sea Salad Sandwich – A tuna fish sandwich is smelly, and a vegetarian won’t eat that kind of sandwich, so try this one. Recipes are available on the internet.
  • Cuban Sandwich – Want a lunch that’ll provide energy to help you get through the travel? Try a Cuban sandwich.
  • Whole wheat bread – Put whipped cream cheese and cucumber in the middle and voila! A tasty meal!
  • Grilled chicken, tomato, lettuce and mustard in a whole-grain wrap
  • Whole Wheat Pita – Just add sliced tomato, pepper, hummus, and cucumber.
  • Rye bread – Looking for something simple and easy to prepare? Just spread peanut butter and jelly on rye bread, and you’re good to go.

 

Pasta

If you’re craving for pasta, or at least you know you will, try these:

  • Broccoli and Feta Pasta Salad – Don’t worry, feta is a firm cheese that can be consumed even if left unrefrigerated in your salad for a couple of hours.
  • Lemony Pesto Pasta with Almonds and Edamame – I suggest you make use of bite-sized pasta to enjoy this meal better.
  • Peppery Whole Wheat Pasta with Wilted Chard – Just use the hot water method to warm this meal up before you partake it.

 

Snacks

If pasta and sandwiches aren’t enough, perhaps you need healthy snacks to entertain your stomach.

  • String CheeseCut veggies with dip – For this snack, you can use small containers for your dip or add smears of the dip in sandwich baggies with cut veggies. Make sure everything is placed inside a TSA-approved quart bag!

  • Nonfat Greek yogurt
