creamy avocado spread.

put that jar of mayo down!  you don’t need it anymore!

friends, this is the best sandwich spread i have ever eaten.  i made it up myself this morning, when i had a hankering for a turkey sandwich.  or, in my house, a SAMwich.  (the hub might never be here, but he’s not forgotten!)

let me back up ~ i’m on this diet that i absolutely LOVE.  it’s called Noom, and it’s an app that does all the typical calorie-counting, exercising-logging things, but it adds lots of therapy, and tops it off with an analysis the types of foods you should be eating.  i had a hard time with it until i followed a sample day they gave, and oh my gosh, i was so satisfied and full and happy all day!  i had tons of energy too.

anyway, this sandwich is perfect for lunch, and scores highly on my diet!

here’s the avocado spread:  it’s so incredibly simple.

  • greek yogurt (a couple tablespoons or more)
  • 1 avocado
  • juice of a lime
  • salt, pepper, chile-lime salt ~ whatever you like
  • 1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard

whip together and slather a tablespoon or two on your bread!

for my healthy sandwich, i used Ezekiel Srpouted Nine-grain Bread (found in the freezer section of most grocery stores), slicked smoked turkey, and that amazing spread.  that’s really all i needed.

you DON’T NEED MAYO.  this is so much better.  it tastes better and it’s better for you.  and i think it’ll last in the fridge for a couple days, hopefully, without getting too brown.  i’ll keep you posted on that.

here’s a pic of my creamy, delectable, mayo-free SAMwich!


update!  the avocado spread has been hanging out in my fridge for the last 3 hours and it is still green and delicious!  it is AMAZING as a dip, too.  this could be my new guacamole recipe!!!
