Swap Bread For Bell Peppers to Make TikTok’s Fave Low-Calorie Sandwich Trend

Fitness

We’ve tried and loved our fair share of bread-less sandwiches over the years. Lettuce, collard greens, corn tortillas . . . you name it, we’ve tried it with various fillings of choice. Now TikTok is introducing us to a colorful and crunchy new option: bell peppers!

It’s one of those trends that has us slapping our foreheads and asking why we haven’t thought of this before. You simply slice a bell pepper in half, length-wise, stuff the hollow halves with your choice of filling, and get munching. It can help you cut down on calories if that’s what you’re after, while adding an extra vegetable serving to your meal. Plus, bell peppers have a solid nutrition profile all their own, full of vitamin C (169 percent of your daily recommended value!) and antioxidants. Altogether, these powerful veggies contain nutrients that can improve your eye health and, due to the high amount of iron, reduce your risk of anemia. And at 92 percent water, bell peppers hydrate you too.

All of which is to say: this trend just might be worth a try if you’re looking to mix up your sandwich game. Check out the best variations we’ve seen of it ahead!
