Most people enjoy a good sandwich, but if you’re trying to be healthy, loading up on deli meats isn’t exactly the best way to go. Luckily, a sandwich doesn’t need to contain meat to be both delicious and filling. Not only will skipping the meat be healthier, but it can also help you save a great deal of money.
