There are other ways to make this sandwich even healthier such as a low-sodium cheese or no cheese at all, using a high fiber bread, using mustard instead of mayo, but this is the way I like it. As you can see, I can eat twice as many sandwiches and still take in fewer calories. Yes, I know, I would also have to double the fat and sodium so I’ll just have one sandwich. Maybe…
We really should have a turkey sandwich with tomato and lettuce but this is an old stand-by car food so we are going for it! As you can see, by reading the label or Nu Val score, you can still eat some of your favorites but make them a bit healthier. I’m just not going to make a steady diet of this one!
We’ll also have some baked Lay’s potato chips and some carrot and celery sticks to round out this meal. For beverages we’ll stick with coffee for Randy, Diet Pepsi (my ONE vice) for me, and water for both.
Dessert? Yes, there will be fresh fruit in the car but we’ll most likely have Twizzlers for Randy and Junior Mints or Whoppers for me. After all, it IS a road trip and one junk food item per day is allowed, it’s in the rule book- just make sure it is under 400 calories and has no trans-fats.
Road Trips can also lead to a bigger bottom so tomorrow I’ll discuss Car-robics!!
