A Canvas for Culinary Innovation

Sandwiches are so versatile. Sandwiches provide an ideal platform for people to experiment. A key trends we see today is people eating a wider variety of sandwiches and as they look for new, unique food options. Veggie Sandwiches, anyone?

37% of the population always or sometimes eats vegetarian meals when eating out. This fact has strong implications for America’s diet. And for food companies and restaurants. It’s not just an ethical statement, but about taste, too. And, for parents, it’s a great way to get kids to eat more vegetables.

For those who have adopted the vegan or vegetarian lifestyle – and for those just seeking a change of pace – there is broader availability and an expanded variety of fresh vegetables. It’s not only new vegetables, but about new preparations as well.

What could be easier than including veggies in an sandwich?

Veggie Sandwiches = Yummy Sandwiches

Sandwich America highlights a Sandwich of the Day from all the submissions we receive on Social Media. Of late, we’ve seen the trend of sandwiches without meat exploding – and not just grilled cheeses.

Featuring what was once a side dish as a sandwich is creativity at its best. Here are some of the best we’ve seen from our friends:  @dani_nemeh, @foodrevels, @twohangryblondes, @evanlykitchen, @grillospickles,  @workweeklunch, @veronicacallag,  @hungryinhobokenm, @crunches_and_lunches.
