Turkey Sandwiches

Turkey sandwich is meat sendwich which can be prepared quickly, represents a full meal, but requires some cooking. These healthy turkey sandwiches can be eaten right away, or packaged and consumed later - if you are on the run, quick and easy sandwich recipes for lunch or other meals, can be great solution.

On non-stick frying pan put a tablespoon of olive oil. Keep the pan on low heat because of olive's oil sensitivity.

Turkey taste so much better on olive oil than on others - as many other things.

Put some spices on meat - salt and pepper are usually enough for me. If you want taste to be even better and have some time, you can marinate meat - day before put meat in plastic container, add some salt, pepper, some olive oil, garlic and some parsley and celery, mix everything, close the lid and put closed container in the fridge over night.

When pan is heated enough, put meat on it. It can be little bit crowded, but meat will shrink soon.

Depending on the thikness of meat, fry every side for 5-10 minutes.

In the meantime, take your bread (bread rolls, two slices of bread or whatever you have) and put it on aluminum foil.

Wrap your sandwiches in aluminum foil and eat them as you please.

If you wrap your sandwiches while meat is still hot, moisture from meat will transfer to bread and it will become soggy. This can be somewhat avoided by wrapping sandwiches in paper napkins. I prefer aluminum foil anyway ...

Enjoy :o)

Good thing about this sandwich is nutritional content (amount in two sandwiches):

Food Amount Protein Carbs Fat Fibers
Turkey meat 400g 90g 0g 5g 0g
Bread (whole wheat if possible) 100g 8g 40g 2g 7g
Pickles 100g 0g 2g 0g 1g
Olive oil 15g 0g 0g 15g 0g
Total: ~ 100g ~ 40g ~ 20g ~ 8g
Calories: 400 kcal 160 kcal 180 kcal -

In total, there are around 750 kcal in both sandwiches (little less than 400 kcal per sandwich). Every sandwich is more than enough to make 100kg+ man satiated for few hours. This is balanced meal with most calories from meat protein. Carbohydrates are complex and digested slowly, so there would be no insulin spike. Calorie content can be lowered by frying meat on less oil in pan. Pickles add aroma and taste, almost no calories.

Whenever I go for some field trip or picnic, I prepare (among other things) two sandwiches and eat them with, for example, tomatos or even yogurt.
