Recipe Box: Skinny-Wiches Must Dine


Hi, my name is SOA and I have a love affair with bread. Hi SOA!

Seriously, I love bread. I’m the type to eat the butt end of the bread naked. No butter. No jam. No judgements, just bread. I credit my ethnic heritage of Nigeria and Jamaica with that. My parents LOVE bread. So thus, I do too.

Recently, I got a coupon to try Arnold’s thin wheat bread and took it as an opportunity to let my inner delicatessen shine. Between my hubby and I, we made about 5 really delicious skinnywiches…although not all of them lasted long enough to be photographed :/

Check out our sorta low calorie sandwiches below and don’t forget to share yours in the comments section!

low calorie sandwich recipes



1 Arnold’s Sandwich Thins in Honey Wheat

1 tablespoon ranch dressing (I used this in place of Mayo because I don’t like mayo)

2 leaves romaine lettuce

2 strips turkey bacon (I also don’t eat pork, but I do eat bacon…in turkey form)


Toast sandwich thins

Smear ranch dressing on top of toasted thin bread

Layer tomato, lettuce, and bacon


Delicious with Kettle or Kale Chips!

Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Toaster


1 Arnold’s Sandwich Thins in Honey Wheat

1 teaspoon butter

1 quarter Butterball turkey sausage link cut in half

Add grape jelly to each sandwich thins, top with cheese followed by egg then sausage.


Tastes great with a bowl of fruit!
