Grilled salmon & veggie sandwich with sweet potato fries

Just because a meal is healthy, it doesn’t mean it has to be bland, unsatisfying or a salad. If you like sandwiches and burgers with fries, here’s a tasty, super healthy alternative to try!

A good start is to substitute burger buns or other white breads with something that is lower in carbs and higher in fiber. I recommend Multi-grain sandwich rounds. They are thin, so they have less carbs, and since they are multi grain, they pack a good amount of fiber.

Another great substitution is sweet potato instead of regular old russet potatoes. There’s nothing wrong with Russet, Sweet potato simply has more nutrients, like beta carotene and fiber. If you also bake your fries instead of frying them, then you have a super healthy side for your sandwich. Check out the recipe and video and give it a go!
