Low Calorie Thanksgiving Sandwich Meal Prep and Storage

  • Make Ahead Sandwiches – Assemble the sandwiches and wrap in parchment or wax paper, and or place in a sandwich bag or container.
  • Fridge Storage – These holiday sandwiches will hold in the fridge for 3-4 days, though the bread may get soggy the longer you leave them in the fridge. To avoid that, toast the bread ahead of time.
