Healthy Italian BLT Sandwiches

Today in my lunch box are these tasty Italian BLT Sandwiches I found from Women’s Health. This is a nice little upgrade from your typical BLT with arugula, pesto and turkey bacon. I also added some avocado for some extra flavor and omitted the mayo. I also plan on trying this with hummus in place of the pesto to switch it up. These babies only have 340 caleries, 5 grams of fiber and 15 grams of protein!

2 teaspoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 teaspoons refrigerated reduced-fat pesto
1 sandwich flatbread (about 100 calories), split
1/4 cup arugula or 2 large lettuce leaves
1/2 small vine-ripened tomato, sliced
3 slices cooked turkey bacon, halved crosswise
1 carrot/celery, cut into sticks

Spread the mayonnaise and pesto (or hummus) on one side of the bread. Top with the arugula or lettuce, tomato, bacon, and other side of the bread. Cut in half and serve with the carrot or celery sticks.
