Mmmm sandwiches. So yummy; so simple. All throughout my young-hood we would go to Jason’s Deli on Sunday afternoons and I’d excitedly order a plain turkey sandwich on white bread. It was one of my favorite things! I loved it because they would stuff it to the brim with turkey. And boy did I used to love turkey. My mom claims that one of my first words when I was a baby was “meat”. I know, I know...I'm a walking miracle.
I'll be honest, a big part of eating plant-based is experimenting. We’ve all grown so accustomed to certain foods throughout our lives and it can be hard to find or create meat/dairy-free alternatives. But it can also be very fun, exciting, and rewarding! If you are interested in eating more plant-based food but don't know where to begin: just think of your favorite sandwich (or whatever food), get on Pinterest, and search for a vegan or vegetarian version. Bada bing bada boom! I guarantee you will find something you fancy.
I’ve also heard some people talk about sandwiches as if they’re one of the downsides of eating plant-based, because they're "boring". To them I say this: just make it to the end of this post because...there's so many yummies! There are sandwiches on here that are much more interesting than any meat-based sandwiches I’ve ever tried.
All of them are meat-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free (with gf bread).
Okay, let's go have a picnic now.
