16 HEALTHY Sub Sandwich Topping Ideas

16 Healthy Sub Toppings

We love eating sub sandwiches for a healthy, but easy lunch.  Especially now that we’re back to school and our schedule just got a lot busier!  There’s something about having the sandwich on that special bread (and not sandwich bread), that makes it that much tastier.  We like to eat it on a whole wheat sub bun, as well as topped with several vegetables.

But, what can you put on a sub sandwich besides meat and cheese?  Let me tell you, the options are limitless!

Of course, you’ve got your normal sandwich toppings…..

  • lettuce
  • tomatoes
  • onion

But there can be so much more to sub toppings.  What about these?


  • spinach
  • shredded carrots
  • sprouts
  • bell peppers (any color)
  • jalapenos
  • pickles
  • cucumbers
  • olives
  • banana peppers
  • avocado
  • guacamole
  • mushrooms
  • Roasted peppers


Mmmm, I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.


In addition to a healthy sub sandwich topping, you can make other heathy choices, like the kind of bread you choose and the kind of meat you choose.  For me, I try to eat whole wheat bread, and I try to buy all natural lunch meat, like the kind that Hillshire Farm recently came out with.  It’s called Hillshire Farm Naturals™ Lunchmeat.
