Veggie Sandwich

Jam-Packed Veggie Sandwich

Often when we are craving sugar the most, it means it’s time for another small meal. Did you know that a great diet to follow consists to 5-6 small meals per day? If you’re feeling an insatiable need for something dripping with cheese or chocolate, why not make a healthy sandwich instead? Yeah, that is NOT the same, we know. But, eating food when you’re hungry is all about the choices you make. If you choose to have a filling meal with more real food, you’ll feel better in the long run.
