It’s time for some sandwiches.
The reason for this is because I want to make sure you guys realize just how simple it is to find your “go-to” meals within your own diet regime.
I’ve been trying my best to mix it up, but I’m also working around your specific requests, which is what makes for such a great variety within our Healthy Recipe Database and now leading into our listicles.
Within our SHJ Nutrition System we revolve our diet around calories and protein intake.
This is a reiteration that we’ll go over in most of our nutrition articles and listicles, but this then allows us to have what we like to consider “free calories” that are used for our indulgences and DAILY cheat meals.
When you have specific “go-to” meals it makes it easier for you to then create free calories on a daily basis with ease.
For example, one of my go-to meals is my Chipotle bowl that I share within our Nutrition System on top of a handful of others that make up daily meals that are super habitual for me.
Sandwiches like these make it easy for us to have a few go-to lunch meals that are quick and easy if we’re not specifically ordering in or grabbing something on the go, or even not planning on meal planning.
I personally LOVE the simplicity behind most of these, and I also have been looking for a way to make a PB&J sandwich part of my go-to meal for quite some time so I’m excited to be able to have it on this list as well.
