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!!!
