Summer is here, and with summer comes fun family road trips! If you’re anything like me, I start getting tired of having to pick which fast food restaurant to eat at while trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Instead, my husband and I will often pack ourselves a picnic lunch filled with our favorite foods and fresh ingredients that will give us lasting energy throughout the day. To help you get started on your picnic lunch for the road, here are 10 amazingly nutritious and delicious sandwiches that will make every family member happy and satisfied.

1. Chipotle Baked Tofu Sandwich

Skipping the meat this time? No problem! This spicy sandwich will have you preferring tofu over meat in no time.

2. Sweet and Spicy Tempeh Sandwich and Carrot Aioli

Marinate the tempeh in some amazing flavors to make the ultimate lunch time sandwich.

3. Turkey, Cranberry, Brie and Pear Sandwiches

This sandwich is great for foodies and picky eaters alike. It’s sweet but a more regular design of sandwich that appeals to all crowds.

4. Avocado Chickpea Salad Sandwiches

SO GOOD. Skip the chicken salad and add in some chickpeas instead! Top off with shredded carrots and beets and you have yourself one memorable sammy.

5. Eggplant Prosciutto and Pesto Pressed Picnic Sandwich

How adorable are these picnic-ready sandwiches? Filled with the best kind of Italian meat, this sandwich will give you that salt fix you would be looking for at McDonald’s.


6. Granola Crunch Apple Peanut Butter Sandwich Wraps

It’s a very simple recipe with fantastic results! This wrap can also double as a breakfast meal if you want to hit the road bright and early!

7. Hummus Avocado Turkey Club Sandwich

This sandwich makes my mouth water! Turkey, hummus and avocado are always amazing together, and get even better with the addition of tomato.

8. The Best Chicken Salad Sandwich

It’s chicken salad with a sweet crunch!

9. California Club Croissant Sandwich

Sick and tired of regular bread? Try a croissant for a change! It’s basically like home made Starbucks.


10. Garden Veggie Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Looking to go gourmet or surprise your family with a feast in the car? These sammies are so filling and mouthwateringly good.
