Nutrition Considerations

When you’re trying to lose or maintain weight, it’s essential to know the nutrition facts of the foods you eat. Unfortunately, some recipe books don’t include this information, so you’re left guessing what you’re actually consuming.

Whether you’re following a specific diet or just trying to watch your overall calorie intake, here’s what you should know about the nutritional components of this Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad Sandwich recipe. Keep in mind that this information is for the filling only. Because breads and rolls can differ significantly in calorie content, you should input that information separately. You can find it on the packaging for your bread or rolls.
