Sandwiches are the ultimate portable lunch food. Try these Paleo breadless sandwiches that swap bread for fresh red pepper, cauliflower, and even bacon!
The epic sandwich is known around the globe for its diversity and portability. It’s arguably the best way to get in a balanced meal when you are on the move. Think about it, you get your veggies, protein, fiber – anything and everything you choose to pack between the bread.
Let’s focus on the outer layer a second – the grainy, carby bread. Bread is obviously a huge Paleo no-no, so does the Paleo community miss out on this handheld meal? Absolutely not. Come to think of it, who was on the sandwich legislative branch that passed the bill stating all sandwiches must be served between two gluten-packed slices?
