A turkey bacon ranch sandwich may not be your go-to at home when it's so easy to get the classic deli staple anytime, anywhere. But think about it this way: When you make it yourself—sourcing local, fresh, and organic ingredients—you're able to create a sandwich that not only tastes better, but is better for you.
