With summer tomatoes at their peak, this is the best time to enjoy these yummy sandwiches, perfect for lunch or school. For a low-carb BLT you might also like my BLT Lettuce wraps! Try them with avocado too!

I love a BLT for lunch, if made with center cut bacon and whole grain bread it’s lighter than a traditional BLT and a great sandwich to pack for lunch. Swapping the mayo for the avocado adds some healthy fats that you can mash up or leave sliced.

For lettuce I used what I had on hand, which happened to be arugula – use romaine, or whatever you like. If you don’t eat pork, of course turkey bacon would work. For picky kids, cater to their taste; if they don’t like one of the ingredients, leave it out or swap it for something else.

To make this even lighter, serve open faced and save on calories, carbs and points (6 points vs 8 points). With a light soup on the side like cream of zucchini or creamy cauliflower (you can put the soup in a thermos for lunch on the go) you’ll have yourself a satisfying meal.
