If you’re anything like me, you’re new to the idea that sandwiches can be made with anything other than simple white or whole wheat bread. My childhood pretty much consisted of finding anything that would taste decent on bread and slapping it together to make a sandwich. I was newly introduced to the idea that you can actually use random ingredients you find around the kitchen to be your top and bottom half of a sandwich. These are healthier ways of still enjoying your favourite lunchtime meal but doing so in a way that compliments your diet and any necessary dietary changes.

All you have to do is slice a tomato in half and fill it with whatever you please. A BLT (but you already have the T covered) would be ideal with avocado. You could also grill the tomatoes or put burgers in between them for the ultimate burger.
Cucumbers are convenient because you don’t really need to cook them (unless you want to) in order to use them for a sandwich. I would recommend putting some salt and pepper on the cucumber after cutting it half for taste. You could also dish out the actual cucumber part and use the skin for the sandwich. The cucumber part could be used inside the sandwich itself or for other cooking purposes.
Zucchini sandwiches have a similar concept to tomatoes, as you can either grill these on the BBQ, fry them, or even bake them in the oven.
Lettuce burgers and sandwiches are becoming increasingly popular as they are a great alternative to burger lovers who want to save a couple of carbs and skip the bun.
Peppers may take a little more work because you have to (well, you should at least) take out the contents of the middle. You will likely have to cut the ends as well, but you could get creative and stuff ingredients into the pepper and then bake it.
