Americans eat 300 million sandwiches every day. That is, statistically at least, like three out of four Americans eating a sandwich every day.

Yes, it is true that the healthy sandwiches has been a staple of the American diet since before the great depression. But a lot of variety has been added over the last century.

Why healthy sandwiches is Need for Body?

We are way beyond the days of having only two jelly options and peanut butter to spread on bread. The options are so abundant these days that you can have the most gluttonous sandwich imaginable or stick to your diet without cutting them out.

Scroll down to learn about ten healthy sandwich ideas that you can eat almost every day.

A Healthy Sandwiches Twist on an Old Classic: The PLT

Instead of having a good ole’ fashion bacon, lettuce, and tomato: ask the deli to give you thinly sliced prosciutto instead. Prosciutto has no carbs and way less fat than bacon. Not to mention: it is delicious!

For your PLTs, you will need about one ounce of thinly sliced prosciutto per healthy sandwiches made.

Heat Things Up: Warm Prosciutto-Stuffed Focaccia

It is almost an undeniable fact that hot sandwiches trump cold ones in taste. Do yourself a favor, buy a sandwich press, and turn your healthy sandwiches game up to eleven.

To start your path to sandwich greatness, begin with an easy sandwich like the warm prosciutto-stuffed focaccia. Take one round loaf of focaccia, fill it with four ounces of Muenster, one cup of spinach, two tablespoons of light balsamic vinaigrette, and three ounces of prosciutto.

Place on the sandwich press for about a minute (plus or minus depending on how grilled you like yours), and you are on your way to healthy sandwich euphoria.

The Protein Powerhouse: Kalamata Olive and Red Onion Tuna Sandwich

Tuna fish in water is one of the best foods if you are trying to keep track of what you are eating. Tuna has the bonus of being almost pure protein. And at only 150 calories a can, you can put it on a pita, a lettuce wrap, or bread, and it still is not that many calories.

Olives and onions are barely any calories themselves, so it can be good to add some in for a bit of texture change and an extra pow of flavor.

Sandwiches for Dinner: Pulled Chicken healthy sandwich

Do you have a hankering for bread and BBQ? Well, look no further than pulled chicken sandwiches.

These are an easy to make option because you can let set the crock pot before you leave for work, and then dinner is ready when you are.

If you are looking for a little tang to add to the sweetness, try a few pickles.

Try Something New: Chipotle Pork and Avocado Wrap

If you are sick of the same old, same old for lunch: why not pack a wrap instead? Wraps tend to be fewer calories and carbohydrates than bread, and they can add some much-needed lunch variety.

Take some sliced up pork, blend it with avocado spread, and maybe a little bit of salsa, and you got yourself a sandwich to satiate you throughout the afternoon.

A Sandwich for Your Sweet Tooth: Grilled Goat Cheese Sandwich with Honey and Figs

It is time to take out that sandwich press again. This hot and delicious sandwich works for every meal of the day.

Just add the three ingredients to an amount you want and press it.

A sweet tip: if you are craving more sweetness, try this sandwich on cinnamon-raisin or sweet Hawaiian rolls.

Viva Italia: Ham and Spinach Focaccia Sandwiches

Feeling Italian, but trying to stay away from all those pasta carbs to eat healthier? Try this Mediterranean delight to calm those cravings.

You can eat it cold or grill it for a little more flavor. If you want a little more of that Italian zest, try a hint of basil along with the ham and spinach

Not Your Mother’s Egg Sandwiches

Eggs are one of nature’s most perfect foods. At about 70 calories each, you can fry them, scramble them, boil them, bake them, and pretty much eat them in any way.

If you do not want to let go of eating sandwiches, but you do not know what to put on it, start with eggs. Eggs taste good with a variety of healthy ingredients.

Egg sandwiches have a vast sliding scale and can be as healthy, or unhealthy, as you wish.

Looking for Convenience? Buy a Box of Frozen Sandwiches instead of Stopping at Panera or McDonald’s

You may think that eggs, bacon, and cheese on your fast food or cafe sandwich are no big deal, but those sandwiches can be a whopping 700-1000 calories each.

If you eat a sandwich every morning, don’t panic: there is a solution in your local grocer’s freezer section. All the breakfast bigwigs, from Jimmy Dean to Special K, has made 200-300 calorie sandwich options for you to choose from.

They only take about a minute to heat up, and you will save money and calories.

Eat Like a Kid Again: PB&B Sandwiches

Craving peanut butter, but scared to eat all that sugary jelly? Well, nix the jelly and say hello to some bananas! This was one of Elvis’ favorites.

At 400 calories, this sandwich is a well-balanced meal. You can eat it warm or cold, but we recommend warm for that gooey-goodness. Your tummy will be saying “Thank you, Thank you very much”

Put More Healthy Options in Your Paper Bags and Picnic Baskets

Face it; sandwiches are as Americana as baseball and apple pie. They will more than likely always be a part of our diet, which is fine, but make sure that you are adding variety to your diet.

A healthy rule of thumb for sandwich toppings is that they should reflect the rainbow in color. Try to stick to foods that are naturally ROYGBV, like fruits and vegetables, and avoid an excess of sauces and cheeses.

Healthy sandwich ideas can only be as healthy as you make them. For getting great diet list in budget you may follow this blog post.

If You Want to be as Great as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk or Sir Richard Branson, Read This

Success, real insane success is a marathon. Oh, and there are no shortcuts. You can’t spring your way to greatness. It takes times, a very long time.

Here is Richard Branson’s business timeline – his business ventures from the 1960s to today. It’s a very long list. It will give you an idea of what it took him to get to now.

These are two of the most upvoted responses on Quora to this question: “How can I be as great as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk or Sir Richard Branson?

1. Justine Musk, Canadian author, and the first wife of Elon Musk

Extreme success results from an extreme personality and comes at the cost of many other things. Extreme success is different from what I suppose you could just consider ‘success’, so know that you don’t have to be Richard or Elon to be affluent and accomplished and maintain a great lifestyle.

Your odds of happiness are better that way. But if you’re extreme, you must be what you are, which means that happiness is more or less beside the point. These people tend to be freaks and misfits who were forced to experience the world in an unusually challenging way.

They developed strategies to survive, and as they grow older they find ways to apply these strategies to other things, and create for themselves a distinct and powerful advantage.

They don’t think the way other people think. They see things from angles that unlock new ideas and insights. Other people consider them to be somewhat insane.

Be obsessed.

Be obsessed.

Be obsessed.

If you’re not obsessed, then stop what you’re doing and find whatever does obsess you. It helps to have an ego, but you must be in service to something bigger if you are to inspire the people you need to help you  (and make no mistake, you will need them).

That ‘something bigger’ prevents you from going off into the ether when people flock round you and tell you how fabulous you are when you aren’t and how great your stuff is when it isn’t. Don’t pursue something because you “want to be great”.

Pursue something because it fascinates you, because the pursuit itself engages and compels you. Extreme people combine brilliance and talent with an *insane* work ethic, so if the work itself doesn’t drive you, you will burn out or fall by the wayside or your extreme competitors will crush you and make you cry.

Follow your obsessions until a problem starts to emerge, a big meaty challenging problem that impacts as many people as possible, that you feel hellbent to solve or die trying.

It might take years to find that problem, because you have to explore different bodies of knowledge, collect the dots and then connect and complete them.

It helps to have superhuman energy and stamina. If you are not blessed with godlike genetics, then make it a point to get into the best shape possible.

There will be jet lag, mental fatigue, bouts of hard partying, loneliness, pointless meetings, major setbacks, family drama, issues with the Significant Other you rarely see, dark nights of the soul, people who bore and annoy you, little sleep, less sleep than that. Keep your body sharp to keep your mind sharp. It pays off.

Learn to handle a level of stress that would break most people.

Don’t follow a pre-existing path, and don’t look to imitate your role models. There is no “next step”. Extreme success is not like other kinds of success; what has worked for someone else, probably won’t work for you.

They are individuals with bold points of view who exploit their very particular set of unique and particular strengths. They are unconventional, and one reason they become the entrepreneurs they become is because they can’t or don’t or won’t fit into the structures and routines of corporate life.

They are dyslexic, they are autistic, they have ADD, they are square pegs in round holes, they piss people off, get into arguments, rock the boat, laugh in the face of paperwork.

But they transform weaknesses in ways that create added advantage — the strategies I mentioned earlier — and seek partnerships with people who excel in the areas where they have no talent whatsoever.

They do not fear failure — or they do, but they move ahead anyway. They will experience heroic, spectacular, humiliating, very public failure but find a way to reframe until it isn’t failure at all.

When they fail in ways that other people won’t, they learn things that other people don’t and never will. They have incredible grit and resilience.

They are unlikely to be reading stuff like this. (This is *not* to slam or criticize people who do; I love to read this stuff myself.) They are more likely to go straight to a book: perhaps a biography of Alexander the Great or Catherine the Great* or someone else they consider Great.

Surfing the ‘Net is a deadly timesuck, and given what they know their time is worth — even back in the day when technically it was not worth that — they can’t afford it.

I could go on, it’s a fascinating subject, but you get the idea. I wish you luck and strength and perhaps a stiff drink should you need it.

Most of these people have focused on individual traits such as hard work, deliberate practice, etc.. But when we look in the real world, we see that individual traits aren’t the whole story.

There are so many people who work extremely hard, have great ideas, plan out big things and so forth, yet they are not nearly as successful as these four legends.

I myself am an entrepreneur. I have been since the age of 16. Recently though, I had the same underlying question you had.

Because of that, I went out searching for the answer.

Through my interviews I do for Forbes, I recently came across the field of network science. This field has studied how people become successful from a completely different angle. They’ve found that how we build our network may be the best predictor of success.

Since then, I have interviewed many of the world’s top network scientists on a quest to understand how networks create competitive advantage in business and careers.

Out of the four legends that have been mentioned, I feel that the best person to showcase as a prime example of how networks impact success is  Steve Jobs.

Since then, books have been written and movies have been made.

Each has celebrated his legacy and aimed to share the secrets he used to build the largest company in the world; things like attention to detail, attracting world-class talent and holding them to high standards.

We think we understand what caused his success.

We don’t.

We dismiss usable principles of success by labeling them as personality quirks.

What’s often missed is the paradoxical interplay of two of his seemingly opposite qualities;

  1. Maniacal focus
  2. Insatiable curiosity

These weren’t just two random strengths. They may have been his most important as they helped lead to everything else.

Jobs’ curiosity fueled his passion and provided him with access to unique insights, skills, values, and world-class people who complemented his own skillset. Job’s focus brought those to bear in the world of personal electronics.

I don’t just say this as someone who has devoured practically every article, interview, and book featuring him.

I say this as someone who has been monomaniacal in the study and research of what the underlying key components are that create career success.
