I like to make this ahead of time so that I have the ingredients on hand to make a fast and healthy sandwich anytime I am starving and need low calories and low fat. It is easy to take your pickles and beets (cooked or canned) and shred them on a cheese grater.
Use a food processor to shred the spinach.
Add mustard to the bread, pile on your ingredients and enjoy!
A great way to modify this for kids is to let them make their own sandwich along with you! It is colorful to look at and a great way to get kids to eat their healthy veggies! DIY sandwich bar. Kids love to be little chefs so fill small bowls with all sorts of healthy ingredients for them to create their own sandwiches and wraps. Kids can use cream cheese to help hold the shredded veggies to the bread and reduce the mess. Make sure to add some proteins too such as meat, eggs, cheese and soy. ENJOY!
