If you were wondering what I’ve been eating these days (as a new, busy mom), THIS is it. Avocado and Turkey Sandwich. Obsessed.
With me getting back into work, but also being at home with my little guy, it’s so easy to forget to eat, shower, or simply remember that it’s your birthday.
Yep. My dad had to remind me that my birthday is next monday. Before having a baby, I would have already had a celebration planned. Funny how priorities change.
So here’s the deal.
I’ve been trying to significantly reduce my cheese intake. I was basically eating it all day, everyday for 9 months.
Turkey and cheese or a grilled cheese and ham sandwich were my comfort, which was new, thanks to pregnancy.
Now that my pre-pregnancy appetite is returning (THANK GOODNESS!), I’m finally back to enjoying my favorite, avocado toast. Sometimes with a fried egg… Oh happy day!
With all the avocados lying around, it was a no brainer when I went to find a replacement for my cheese obsession. A nice little exchange of bad fats with good fats.
I literally ate TWO turkey and avocado sandwiches for lunch the other day.
Avocado and Turkey Sandwich
- 2 pieces of bread, gluten-free (or bread of choice) – I like Udi’s
- 1/4-1/2 avocado
- 2 slices of organic turkey breast
- 1 piece of lettuce
- tomatoes – optional
Mash up avocado and spread on one side of both pieces of bread. Season with salt + pepper.
Place turkey on top of the avocado, then the lettuce. If using tomato, place on top of the lettuce. Top with the second piece of bread, avocado side down. Cut in half and enjoy!
*gluten-free *dairy-free – depending on bread choice
- Hummus and avocado bites with roasted tomatoes
- Avocado Tomato and Egg Sandwich
- Soft Boiled Eggs with mashed Peas and Edamame on Toast
