Are you wondering “what is an unwich?” Bread-less sandwiches, known as an “unwich”, are a new way to make your meals less guilty.  An unwich is where you forgo the bread and use veggies instead. Are you nuts? A sandwich isn’t a sandwich without the bread…or is it?

Reasons to Try an Unwich:


It’s time to take that sandwich and make it healthier for you. No matter how you stuff it, wrap it, or slap it together, tossing the bread and using veggies instead gives you an extra serving of greens and can help you shed some of those extra pounds left over from the winter.

Here are some great bread replacements:

  • Boston bib lettuce for a wrap
  • Collard green leaf for a wrap
  • A mock bun with a Portobello mushroom
  • Hollow out a cucumber or zucchini to make an unwich boat
  • Use cucumber discs for a mini appetizer dish
  • Stuff a tomato or pepper with your favorite spread.

There are so many possibilities, and being creative is all part of the fun!
