(I originally posted this in the vegetarian section yesterday. I am not vegetarian BTW, but had seen this thread and thought this might sound good to someone there.)

I tried this today and it was so yummy! It is my healthy version of one of my fav sandwiches. The original is a plain bagel, toasted, with cream cheese, cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts and red onion. I used to have the deli add bacon to it sometimes, too.

My version:
-1 Double Fiber Oroweat English Muffin (110 cal., 8 grams fiber), toasted
-About 2 Tbsp fat free cream cheese (30 cal.)
-Sliced cucumber, lettuce, bean sprouts, sliced green pepper.(I personally don't count calories on raw veggies.)

(I reheated in micro for 20 sec. to take the chill off. It didn't affect the crispness of the veg.)

I ate a few grape tomatoes and sugar snap peas alongside. It tasted so good to me to have a sandwich for lunch. You could also add a medium banana (110 cal.) or 1 cup grapes (100 cal.).
