7. Green Club Sandwich

Contrary to popular belief, a sandwich doesn’t necessarily need to be boring! Although, it is a very safe choice, experiment with it and see what works best for you! Personally, I dislike when my sandwich gets soggy and wet – that is why I try to avoid anything that could possibly cause it. For some, hummus may seem too watery like it’s not meant for lunchbox sandwiches, however, in small amount it’s perfect when spread on a slice of rye bread with some leaves and veggies.
