When it comes to our recipes, we’re all about sharing those with the healthiest ingredients and this Rye Bread Turkey Sandwich is no exception.

Give it a shot and you’ll be packing your lunchbox with a super healthy, low calorie sandwich which will keep you going all afternoon.

If you haven’t tried rye bread before give it a go as it’s considerably more healthy than white bread and can be a great alternative to your usual brand of wholewheat.

Like good quality wholegrain breads, rye bread is high in fibre and is low on the glycemic index meaning it doesn’t cause a spike in blood sugar like most simple carbs.

Turkey is also a great for a healthy lunch as it’s high protein and low fat (even lower than chicken breast) and cucumber is a nice supplement as it’s packs a nutritional punch and is extremely alkaline so promotes a nice balance.

Tips & alternatives

Oven roasted turkey breast is preferable, however, if you can only get turkey slices try to avoid the processed type which usually have added salt and water.
