Grilled Turkey and Ham Sandwiches
Randy Mayor

Protein-Packed Sandwich

You can’t go wrong with a sandwich after a workout―it’s got everything in a hand-held package. Low-sodium cold cuts provide some salt to help replace what’s lost in sweat during exercise. Tomatoes add freshness and a boost of vitamin C. You can easily substitute 100 percent whole wheat bread in this recipe to boost the fiber content. Grill it up ahead of time and pack for lunch, or whip it up in minutes for an easy weeknight dinner.
