All This Goodness For Only 500 Calories

Just don't ask me the sodium content. hee

Club sandwich, pickle and fruit salad
This was dinner tonight. Amazing!  

The sandwich consists of 2 oz of ham, 2 oz of turkey, 1 slice of bacon, 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, 1 slice of tomato, 2 leaves of lettuce and 3 pieces of white bread.

If you make it according to those specs', including the fruit salad and pickle it is only 500 calories. Yummy and filling.

The sodium content is a whopping 1200 mg, but I couldn't eat this whole sandwich anyway - so I ate a half.
If I was to skip the pickle and leave off the ham [sigh] then that drops it to a manageable 625 mg of sodium for a whole sandwich.

You just really need to make this. It will make you smile.

Trust me.

Sometimes when we used to go out to lunch, I would always order a turkey club sandwich on whole wheat. They are so yummy. And the pickle is a must too. That looks delicious.

Forget the pickle and blot the ham or go for a ham that's fresh, maybe turkey and that would be my kind of sandwich.
