Awesome recipe. I wish I could eat it, however, I am on a diet right now and it seems that the sandwich has too many calories for me =(

I'm a little exercise machine but food is my downfall. I want to have a healthy diet (I already only eat whole grain bread, pastas, ect ect) but I also tend to binge eat on food I shouldn't.. . What kind of food do you keep around your house? What do you usually have for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Do you have five meals a day instead?.
