Expert Tips

“With my husband being the ‘king of sandwiches,' this is good for us. The steak is a lean cut with hardly any fat.” Cathy P.

Lunching on an oversized deli sandwich can cost you anywhere from 600 to 800 calories. Instead, bring a healthy lunch from home. Pack sandwiches that feature lean meats or cheeses for a midday protein punch. Also include raw vegetable sticks and fresh fruit for fiber and nutrients.
