In honor of this week’s National Sandwich Day (November 3), Business Insider mapped out the most identifiable sandwich for each state. Including Washington D.C., there are 51 sandwiches that capture the flavor and spirit of each state in the union.

In true DietsInReview fashion, each recipe is the healthiest version we could find.
