The next best food after chapati is  bread. Bread butter and masala chai are considered to be a healthy way of starting our day. So much that we have almost become addicted to this refined flour product. We need to understand that breads available off the market shelves are an amalgamation of refined flour, butter and sugar and excess of anything can harm us more than you think.

Ever wondered, why after continuous days of vigorous workouts, the weighing scale does not seem to dip down? The answer is your midday brown bread sandwiches. Here are some listed delicious alternatives fruits and vegetables to your all time Favorite bread which can help you in two ways: Get  rid of your bread addiction and losing fat and weight at the same time.

1.​Potatoes:-

Even though the carb content in potatoes is high, using potatoes in place of bread is a better option as these contain complex carbs which are good for those following an intense cardio workout regime. This is because after a cardio workout our body craves for carbs more than any other nutrient, and bread is not the ideal choice due to the presence of refined flours – which is found in most multigrain breads too. Therefore, replace your bread with potatoes and see the difference in your satiety levels.

2.​Bell peppers:-

We love adding colours to our salads and what better way to have a colourful sandwich instead. You can grill the bell pepper and add cheese, olives and lettuce in the middle to have a treat of your own!

3.​Eggplants:-

We know that our treasured eggplant is usually cooked in the form of a subzi in our homes, but another yummy way to add this rich in dietary fiber vegetable in your diet is by replacing your bread with thin slices of grilled eggplant. You can add bell peppers, cheese, potato tikki to experiment and have this as a healthy snack.

4.Tomatoes:-

As Indians, tomatoes are special to us. We add these everywhere and anywhere we think our food may lack taste. We usually put two slices of tomatoes in the middle of our sandwiches. If you want your sandwich to be healthy, remove those two slices of bread and let the rest of the filling remain the same within two slices of tomatoes. Not only will you get the same flavour but no one will end up evil-eyeing your big fat sandwich!

5.Cucumbers:-

Cucumbers can be used in a variety of ways to make a veggie sandwich without bread. You can make mini open sandwiches with paneer, olives and tomatoes. Or you can use a peeler and peel them into thin and wrap your fillings inside. Low in calorie and rich in dietary fiber, this is the perfect way to snack on a sandwich.
