Calories In A Veggie Hummus Sandwich

Calorie Quiz: Size Up Your Sammie

With all the yummy veggies I'm harvesting from my garden, my go-to lunch has been a veggie sandwich. It seems so healthy since it's like a salad smooshed between two slices of bread, but let's build a sandwich step-by-step and see how many calories it really is.

the multi-grain bread I use is only 45 calories per slice. i put tomatoes, sprouts, cucumber, red pepper, dijon mustard, spinach leaves, and a slice of 25 calorie fat free kraft classics cheese. delicious!

Could probably easily cut the calories by stuffing everything in a wrap instead of bread.

The whole grain bread I buy is around 80 calories per slice too. I love veggie sandwiches, but the only time I ever really eat them is at Subway. Haven't been there in months because the bread is terrible.
