    7 Summertime Healthy Eating Tricks You Need To Try

    Summertime, and the (healthy) livin' is easy.

    1. Learn to make a vegetarian sandwich that's healthy and actually filling.

    A vegetarian sandwich shouldn't just be filled with vegetables; you need some protein and fat in there to keep you full and satisfied. Add any combination of beans, avocados, hummus, nut butter, tofu, tempeh, and dried fruit for some extra staying power.
