This recipe for a Simple and Easy Low Carb Veggie Sandwich has been sponsored by Carbonaut. All opinions listed are 100% my own.
I don't know about you, but after all the indulging I have been doing from the end of October until now has me wanting to do a full body reset with my eating habits.
Right after Christmas, it's a great time to start that, so today, I am going to share with you a simple and very low carb veggie sandwich that you can make for yourself.
This would be a hearty lunch and no need to worry about carbs, gluten, or calories. The reason for that is because I have found a delicious low carb bread that is gluten free and the best part? It tasted like it just came from the bakery!
A few years ago, if someone would mention to me that they were using gluten free bread, I would turn my nose up at it. I mean, who wants to eat something that tastes like you're chewing on cardboard right?
Healthier bread options have come a long way since then. I was recently introduced to Carbonaut Bread and I am SOLD on how delicious it is.
Why I Have Fallen In Love with Carbonaut Bread
Whether you are on a vegan diet, or you are like me and just looking to lighten your meal choices, Carbonaut bread is the perfect option.
Carbonaut is family-owned company on a mission to bring you low carb bread that tastes like it came from the corner baker. And trust me when I say — it truly tastes like the corner bakery bread. I was pleasantly surprised with the taste, texture, and feel of it.
Carbonaut offers 3 styles of bread — white, seeded, and cinnamon raisin. The gluten-free bread has only 1 gram of net carbs per serving and contains up to 14 grams of fiber for just 50 calories. The original white bread never has more than 3 grams of net carbs per serving and contains 6-7 grams of protein for just 80 calories.
Carbonaut is Keto-Certified and Non-GMO Project Verified, and the best part is that the white and seeded versions are vegan and 100% plant-based.
We have used all three of the breads in different ways to try it out and see.
Here's what we have made so far using the different varieties —
- Homemade Croutons with the white bread
- Grilled Cheese with the Seeded
- French Toast with the Cinnamon Raisin
- Low carb Veggie with the white
- Regular toast
- Egg in the hole
There are so many options you can make with this bread. I am so glad I was introduced to it because they now have a new customer for life!
Now Let me tell you about my Low Carb Veggie Sandwich
This sandwich features all my favorite green veggies on one sandwich. For the base, we used my Lemon hummus recipe. Then I topped it with sliced avocado, cucumbers, thinly sliced radishes, some spinach and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. It really had the best flavor.
