Korey Goodwin’s Sandwich Strategy

  1. Choose a 100 percent stone-ground whole-wheat bread or pita bread.
    As an alternative, create a lettuce wrap sandwich.
  2. If you have to have mayo, use 2-3 teaspoons max.
    As an alternative try mustard instead, or a quarter to a half of an avocado, which contains the healthful kind of fat.
  3. Use spinach instead of iceberg lettuce.
    Spinach has a cancer-fighting antioxidant, combats ovarian and prostate cancers, and improves brain function.
  4. Tomatoes.
    One of the most well-known tomato-eating benefits is lycopene. This antioxidant helps fight against cancerous cell formation as well as other kinds of health complications and diseases.
  5. Cucumbers.
    Composed of water but also containing ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and caffeic acid, a cucumber’s hard skin is rich in fiber and contains a variety of beneficial minerals, including silica, potassium and magnesium.
  6. To cap it off, don’t forget a lean source of protein.
    Turkey meat is a good option, and 2-3.5 ounces is a good serving size.
