Few things are easier to pack for lunch than a sandwich. And, with all of the sandwich varieties, it’s a tireless option - as long as you have a bread you like!
Since the Paleo diet typically does not permit bread, many in the Paleo community kissed away traditional sandwiches forever, opting instead for Paleo wraps or a lettuce substitute. But, Base Culture recently introduced a Paleo bread: Base Culture’s Paleo Sandwich Bread. Made with almond flour, golden flax, and honey, Base Culture bread has the consistency of a classic slice of wheat bread, and a kick of subtle sweetness that can round out the flavor of a great sandwich.
The following are some fun and original lunch sandwich recipes to try out with your new loaf of Base Culture bread.
- Jalapeno Popper Chicken Salad
For an extra spicy kick to your lunch sandwich, try this jalapeno popper chicken salad recipe from Julie Bauer at PaleOMG. It’s a unique twist on the classic “chicken salad sandwich.” The recipe calls for chicken, bacon, chives, jalapenos, and red onions, with hot sauce, avocado mayo, black pepper, and salt for flavor! Pile a generous portion onto your paleo sandwich bread for a protein-packed lunch that will last you throughout the day.
- Buffalo Ranch Chicken Sliders
Continuing on the spice kick, this buffalo ranch chicken sliders recipe from Dolly’s Whole Life offers an inspired twist on the classic chicken sandwich, and includes the full range of meal necessities, from carrots to potatoes to chicken. Use celery stalks for an extra crunch, and flavor generously with ¼ cup buffalo sauce, avocado oil, ranch dressing, and salt and pepper.
Insider tip: For “sliders” bread style, throw slices of Base Culture bread in the oven to give it a nice crisp.
- Asparagus Caprese Sandwich
For vegetarians or caprese salad lovers, try this veggie sandwich option: stack fresh tomato slices with thin slices of mozzarella caprese cheese, then chop one-inch long asparagus pieces and layer between mozzarella and tomato slices. Season with salt, pepper, and oregano, then add a drizzle of olive oil for good measure.
This sandwich recipe also goes best on toasted paleo sandwich bread.
With Base Culture bread, you can get creative on different sandwich recipes that you and your family love. One thing is for sure, though - that creative energy doesn’t have to be wasted on brainstorming ways to make a sandwich without bread.
All you need now is a delicious side like an apple, and to finish out the meal with Base Culture’s almond butter brownie!
