(Turkey) Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato Sandwich

My tomato plant has been faithfully producing some delicious and sweet Early Girl tomatoes for the past month or two.

Aren't they so cute?

We also have a ton of homegrown avocados from Greg's parents. They are the BEST avocados I've ever had. We try to use them up before they become overripe, but they all seem to wanna ripen at the same time.

Anyhow, I was craving turkey bacon the other day and I decided to make a healthified BLT sandwich. My mom is a huge fan of BLTs, ones that come on toasted white bread with a stack of pork bacon and a slathering of mayo. That's not quite my cup of tea. ;-)

So I modified this traditional sandwich by incorporating much healthier turkey bacon with mashed avocado to replace the mayo and a hearty whole grain bread.

This sandwich might be just about the best lunch you could eat. You meet your carb, protein, veggie, and healthy fats all for only 300 calories. What a deal! You'll get 24g of protein as well, which will keep you feeling full and your blood sugar stable.

The next day I was still on my turkey bacon kick so I swapped out the lettuce for some egg, for a breakfast sandwich.

This little baby is about 390 calories and 32 g protein. A perfectly balance breakfast of champs.

Happy Fourth of July, belated!
