A turkey sandwich is a great way to balance protein and carbs at lunch. I use Pepperidge Farm Oatmeal Bread, light mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, onion, and one slice bacon. I like the bread toasted. Here is the recipe:

2 slices Pepperidge Farm Oatmeal Bread
3 oz turkey
light mayonnaise

Fat: 7 gm Carbs: 28 gm Protein 22 gm Fiber 2 gm Cal 272

If you have the room in your daily targets, add one slice turkey bacon!

Notice how the protein grams are within 10 gm of the carb grams. Ideally, you should have more protein than carbs, but as long as it is within 10 gm, you are OK.

You can make this basic sandwich with any lean protein, such as chicken, roast, ham, or fish.
