Build a Better Sandwich: Pepperoncini

A sandwich is a wonderful vehicle for a well-balanced meal, but the calories can add up. Lately I have been skipping the cheese, since two slices adds up to well over 200 calories. For taste, I have been covering my sammie with pepperoncinis, small, yellow, pickled Mediterranean peppers. These little peppers add crunch as well as a sweet tangy taste to almost any sandwich, and they're great on salads too. Calorically speaking, they bring little to the plate. Two of these peppers contain only 10 calories. The only downside to pepperoncinis is, being a pickled item, they are high in sodium. My go-to sandwich of late: turkey on whole wheat with avocado, tomato, lettuce, mustard, and pepperoncinis. It's tasty.
