I was inspired this morning by my friend, Arianna, at Lavender and Pink blog.  She posted a yummy smoothie recipe that she has been making as part of her clean eating endeavors.  So, I wanted to post a recipe for one of my favorite (healthy) sandwiches ever!  I have been making it for lunch pretty often for the past couple weeks.  It is from the Raw Food Detox Diet by Natalia Rose.  I am not currently on the plan, although I have done it in the past.  It is a great plan!  This is one of my favorite recipes in the book.  Its simple, quick, filling, and delicious!

You will need:

Romaine lettuce or baby greens

1 tomato, sliced

1/2 avocado, sliced or smashed with a fork.  I like to smash it so it all sticks together better.

2 slices whole grain bread.  I use Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Bread

(optional) Other sliced vegetables, such as sprouts, bell pepper, or cucumber

(optional) mustard or raw dressing

When I make this, I always toast the bread first.  Then I smash the avocado and add a little fresh ground black pepper, sea salt, and sometimes a little lime.  I spread it on the toast and then add my tomato slices.  Sometimes I add other veggies, but usually just go with tomatoes.  You can put it all together, or eat open-faced.  Soooo good!
