That's where our best healthy lunch recipes come to the rescue. We've got tons of tasty lunch meals like crunchy fresh salads, layered-with-goodness sandwiches, and even picnic recipes to take with you to the ballpark or on a picnic. Sandwiches are a great healthy lunch choice—they're quick, delicious, and portable. A few simple swaps to your usual sandwich fixings can help you save hundreds of calories without skimping on taste. We walk you through how to make a lighter, more flavorful sandwich with low-calorie and low-fat swaps, as well as an explanation of the four basic elements of a sandwich.
