Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it. ~Buddha
We are in the full throes of summer. And it is hot! My oven goes off sometime in May, and I do very limited cooking (pasta) and begin eating a LOT of sandwiches. I love this sandwich because it is so simple and summery. You can make the hummus yourself, or if you're in a hurry like I am these days, it's easy to buy from stores. It takes two minutes to make if you're slow like me. Once I collect the ingredients, I'll have it for lunch several times a week.
1 med ripe tomato
1 ripe avocado
2 slices of your favorite whole grain bread
- Slice the tomato in half, than slice into rounds.
- Slice the avocado in half around the seed. Twist the avocado so that it breaks cleanly in two, and reserve the half with the seed. This can be kept in the refrigerator for a day - the seed is an antioxidant and will keep it from browning. Take the other half and slice into thin wedges.
- Slather one piece of bread with hummus.
- Arrange the avocado over the hummus then the tomato
- Top with the other slice of bread.
What I ate: Fage yogurt + strawberries + blueberries, 8 boiled vegetable dumplings, hummus + baby carrots, 16 oz ice coffee, handful of almonds, cheese popcorn, caramel popcorn, handful of grape tomatoes, whole wheat pasta + tomato basil pesto + mixed green salad, 50 oz. water
Exercise: 3 mile jog
