Veggie Sandwich


I made this sandwich yesterday and it turned out so good! I want it NOW. I ran my fourth half marathon this morning and I am feeling quite ravenous despite consuming lots of gels, Gatorade, chocolate/protein almond milk, and a recovery drink....but we are going out for my fiance's birthday and the sushi restaurant doesn't open until noon. So I am holding off on eating until then.
I had a really good race and got to run with my running BFF the whole time. I am so grateful for friends who tell you "YES, YOU CAN" when it is hard to tell yourself that.

Ingredients (makes 1 sandwich)

  1. 2 slices of whole grain bread
  2. 1/4 avocado, mashed
  3. hummus of choice
  4. 1/2 cup -1 cup of sprouts
  5. 1/2 of a tomato, thinly sliced
  6. red onion, a few thin slices
  7. 1/4 of a cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
  8. 1 large lettuce leaf

Method

Toast both slices of bread. On one slice of bread, spread desired amount of hummus. On the other slice of bread, spread your mashed avocado. Layer remaining vegetables on bread slices to build your sandwich. Eat and enjoy!
