Get Your Sandwich Fix on Jenny Craig
By Staci Amend
We’re not sure if it’s the versatility, the portability, or the endless possibilities, but there is just something SO satisfying about a sandwich. At Jenny Craig, we understand the power of these tasty little take-along meals—so we’ve got healthy, portion-perfect options for every meal of the day. Here are seven ways to get your sandwich fix, without straying from your weight loss path… along with volumizing options to help you mix things up!
1. Grilled Chicken Sandwich
Delicious backyard BBQ taste you can bring to work --or anywhere! Lettuce and tomato are natural additions—we love to add Jenny Craig Balsamic Dressing or Jenny Craig Salsa Ranch Dressing with the lettuce and tomato—but this sandwich gets a tart twist when you add our Fennel Cucumber Slaw instead. A lunchtime standard gets a bistro upgrade!
2. Mediterranean Style Egg Sandwich
Start by popping the artisan roll in the toaster to add a light crunch. Then stretch this breakfast favorite into a lunchtime staple by adding a side salad like our easy Greek Spinach Salad. If you’re on the move, you can even put a small portion of the salad inside your sandwich… the feta adds the perfect burst of flavor.
3. Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich
They say you can’t have too much of a good thing—as long as it’s good for you! That’s why we like to sauté an EXTRA handful of peppers and onions with bit of fat-free cooking spray and a dash of pepper. The result is a Philly cheesesteak that’s piled nearly as high as the storied sammies at the world-famous spots in Philadelphia.
4. Sunshine Sandwich
This daybreak fave is basically a blank slate… there are so many places you can take it! For a south-of-the-border vibe, try it with a tablespoon of pico de gallo and a small slice of fresh avocado. Francophiles and foodies can also sauté some sliced onions and mushrooms in a bit of fat-free butter spray for a delicious free-food layer.
5. Turkey Bacon & Egg White Sandwich
This morning staple is fairly traditional, so why not pair it with something that isn’t? Make an easy sweet and savory breakfast slaw using a head of green cabbage (shredded), two cored green apples (thinly sliced) and one yellow onion (slivered). Toss in apple cider vinegar, add salt and pepper to taste—then enjoy as a side all week long!
6. Turkey Burger
You haven’t experienced our turkey burger unless you’ve tried THIS pairing: Balsamic Tomato Caprese Featuring Jenny Craig Balsamic Dressing. Try a small portion on the side or put those tasty tomatoes right on your burger. Or if you prefer your turkey burger with a legitimate kick, try adding a dollop of fresh Wasabi Slaw.
7. Classic Cheeseburger
There are lots of ways to “class up” your Jenny Craig Classic Cheeseburger: pickles, grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms and even shaved carrots. Or, to really get your blood moving, try mixing Jenny Craig Ranch Dressing or low-fat mayo with spicy Sriracha sauce.
