Yesterday we didn't have any fresh fruits in the house or some of the veggies I put in my green drink so I skipped that and had a pb&j for breakfast. After snacking on kettle corn, at lunch I had a tempeh "bacon" panini with gobs of Vegenaise. It was definitely not the healthiest day and I was feeling it by dinner time. That sandwich was quite heavy.
Then it hit me, I craved a fresh, cold salad.
No, I didn't make one. Sad but true. I caved and had Indian food for dinner.
Here is what I should have made for lunch. A crisp and fresh veggie sandwich. You can virtually put whatever you want in it but this is my preferred taste combination. The amounts aren't exact, build it the way you want. You'll be happy you made a healthy lunch choice.
|crunchy, cold, satisfying|
2 slices Ezekiel bread
1 tablespoon hummus
1 tablespoon guacamole or sliced avocado
1/4 cup baby spinach
thinly sliced tomato
thinly sliced red onion
thinly sliced cucumber
small handful sprouts, alfalfa or broccoli
Lightly toast the bread. Spread hummus on one slice and guacamole on the other.
Layer one slice with spinach, tomato, red onion, cucumber, sprouts and avocado if using. Top with the other slice of bread.
