    Sneaky Veggie Lunch

    I started doing this for my kids, but now I do it for myself and my husband. When I make sandwiches with turkey or lean ham, I use the food processor to mince broccoli, carrots, celery, and whatever other veggies I have, and then I spread the veggie mixture between the meat slices. It’s a great way to add extra vitamins, minerals, and fiber to a sandwich!
