When I was younger, I have fond memories of going to our local fruit and vegetable market with my mom, brother, sister and I. We would load the cart up with all of the produce that we wanted which was always a huge overflowing cart because we loved our produce and were a hungry family of 5. When we got home, us kids would help my mom unload the groceries and immediately pull out all of the vegetables to make our favorite lunch: a loaded veggie sandwich.

For some reason, as an adult, I always forget to make these vegetable sandwiches which is crazy because I love them so much! I recently made another rainbow recipe and had a bunch of produce leftover so I decided to make these amazing Rainbow Vegetable Sandwiches. I seriously could not decide which spread to use: hummus or an herbed cream cheese. I texted my mom and sister and we all thought that both sounded good. So it's up to you, use what sounds best!

I didn't include meat or cheese on this sandwich but you could easily add a few slices of turkey lunch meat or sliced chicken breast. Feel free to use what you like! Also, use what vegetables you have on hand and prefer. I do like having at least one vegetable in each color because it looks so pretty.

This Rainbow Vegetable Sandwich is loaded with nutrients from all of the vegetables including lots of vitamins, minerals and fiber. I love that after I eat it, I always feel good about what I ate. I feel full but not weighed down. These are great packed for a lunch and eaten on the go as well. If you know me, you know that I almost always use whole-grains in my cooking and this time was no different. I picked up a loaf of delicious Dave's Killer Bread when I was at Walmart for these sandwiches.

I have been a huge fan of Dave's Killer Bread for many years and highly recommend it if you haven't tried it. They have the best varieties of whole-grain breads and are still soft and fluffy and taste amazing. My whole family agrees! It is awesome toasted with peanut butter and bananas on it for a snack, made into a sandwich for lunch or made into French toast for breakfast.

For this sandwich, I chose the Dave's Killer Bread 21 Whole Grains and Seeds bread. So good! The bread is USDA organic. It is high in fiber with 5 grams per serving, has 5 grams of protein and is of course, a great whole-grain option. It is lightly sweet and has a seed-coated crust. The next time you visit Walmart, grab a loaf of Dave's Killer Bread!
