A sandwich's health depends on its toppings. Many sandwich toppings aren't as healthy as others and are heavy in calories.
Most sandwiches have meat. Choose turkey, chicken, ham, or roast beef. Except for salami, deli meats are high in protein and low in fat.
Protein is needed for fluid homeostasis, hormone and enzyme synthesis, and tissue repair, such as skeletal muscle.
Sodium-rich sandwich components like deli meat and cheese can cause water retention and moderate finger and toe edoema.
Your sandwich's fibre content depends on the bread and vegetables you use. Fiber has several critical biological activities.
Fiber reduces blood cholesterol and maintains digestive regularity, which can relieve constipation.
Antioxidants keep cells healthy and functioning. Vitamins C and E are antioxidants, and many more are found in fruits, vegetables, and plants.
Loading your sandwich with veggies will certainly enhance your antioxidant intake.
Dietary fats (especially sandwich fats) can boost heart health. Unsaturated fats are healthy.
These fats can decrease inflammation and LDL (bad) cholesterol, which is good for heart health. Unsaturated fats are found in plant-based foods including avocado, nuts, seeds, and olive oil.
