Did you know that September is National Family Meals Month™? It’s a food retail industry-wide movement to raise awareness of the benefits of frequent family meals. There’s a simple goal, eat one more meal together as a family, at home, each week.

Research shows that eating meals as a family can have far-reaching health and wellness benefits to individuals and the community. Family meals have been associated with increased diet quality, as well as improved mental health, academic performance, and more. In fact, numerous studies show that home-cooked meals nourish the spirit, brain and health of all family members.

The difficult part though, is the practical aspect of making this happen. 63% of Americans decide what to eat less than an hour before eating. This is where a good loaded sandwich recipe comes in handy. What if getting dinner on the table (and yes, I mean a dinner you can be proud to serve your family) was as simple as sandwiches and some sides?

Before I give you the recipe for this specific sandwich, let’s look at some of my tips for building a perfectly delicious and nutritious sandwich, so you are equipped to make whatever type of sandwich you and your family desires.

How to Build Nutritious and Delicious Sandwiches

Bread: Choose a whole grain bread. Ideally the first word in the ingredient list should have the word “whole” in it. If it just says “wheat flour” or “stone ground wheat” or something equivalent, this is not a whole grain bread. Whole grain bread will be made with “whole wheat flour” or another whole grain.

Condiments: There’s a wide range of options here from mustard to mayo, salad dressing to hummus. Choose a condiment that’s made with quality ingredients. A new favorite of mine is the Hellmann’s® Avocado Oil Mayonnaise Dressing . (You guys know how I love avocado oil!) It combines the creamy, rich taste of traditional mayonnaise and quality oils. It’s high in omega-3 ALA* and vitamin E and is also gluten-free and certified kosher.

*Contains 320mg of ALA per serving, which is 20% of the 1.6g, daily value for ALA.

Proteins: Choose anything from lunch meat to rotisserie chicken to canned tuna. Or if you’re keeping it vegetarian, consider cheese, tofu, tempeh, or other plant-based alternatives.

Veggies: Sandwiches are a great opportunity to load up on veggies! No need to stick with just the basic lettuce. Try adding tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, green beans, and so on. Get creative!

Good fats: To make a sandwich that truly satisfies, there’s got to be some fat in there. Fat is what helps us feel full and satisfied for longer. This could be nut butters, the new Hellmann’s® Avocado Oil Mayonnaise I mentioned above, avocado, hummus, etc.
