My go-to veggie sandwich recipe is loaded with healthy ingredients that will keep you energized and full through the day.
You ever have those dishes that are your regular go-to’s? Mine is this go-to veggie sandwich recipe (have you tried my go-to breakfast recipe? It’s this Blueberry Chocolate Smoothie that’s like a healthy chocolate shake but loaded with amazing antioxidants).
I work full time for the CEO of a company and 99% of the time I do not take a lunch break and I spend my time chowing down like a horse at my desk. Things just get too hectic around the office and when my boss doesn’t take a lunch, I don’t either (although he’d have no qualms about me taking one, but it’s just what I do).
I always keep these ingredients on hand when I need a lunch for work. Plus, having a go-to sandwich causes the least amount of brain damage trying to think up of a lunch idea. I prep my veggies ahead of time and the morning of, I slap this baby together. I add the sprouts and tomatoes at lunch–Tomatoes have a tendency to wet the bread and wilt the sprouts, so I like to add those two separately.
Want to know a trick to keeping your avocados fresh? Put them next to an onion. For some reason the onion allows the avocado not to brown so quickly–Huh. You can thank me later. I love it when I can pass on a kitchen hack that is life changing :)
This sandwich is super duper healthy. You get so many veggies, antioxidants, and vitamins that you end up not falling asleep after a meal; rather, you feel energized to make it through the rest of the work day.
This go-to veggie sandwich of mine takes about 15 minutes to prep the veggies and assemble, but if you prep the veggies ahead of time for the week, it takes only a few minutes to put together. This veggie sandwich is:
Rich in vitamins
The avocado in this recipe makes this sandwich a little higher in fat and calories, however, it is the good kind of fat with amazing vitamin benefits.
This sandwich has no cholesterol, is high in dietary fiber, manganese, potassium, and vitamin C!
I hope you love my go-to veggie sandwich recipe as much as I do.
