Love Sweet Love

Truly, I've never met a fruit or vegetable I didn't like. Like people, they are so colorful, have wonderful unique textures and personalities. They literally come in every color of the rainbow. Red tomatoes and apples, cherries, and strawberries, green spinach, limes and lettuces, blueberries and blackberries, yellow lemons, orange pumpkins and oranges, purple grapes and plums. The list seems endless. My new blogging friend, Manzanita of Wanna Buy a Duck (I mentioned her yesterday) got me to thinking about the healthier eating goals I have.

When I thought about what I might have for lunch today, I spied a perfectly ripe avocado sitting in the fruit bowl. I l.o.v.e avocados...and my favorite sandwich just happens to be an avocado, tomato, cheese, sprout sandwich on multi-grain bread.

I ate my before I got a picture of it...but this one taken by Divina of Sense and Serindipity of her delicious sandwich looks pretty close. My plate was a green paper plate left over from Super Bowl though. ☺Do you have a favorite sandwich?

Have a beautiful and healthy day! ~Blessings, Janet


  1. I am not a big sandwich lover when made at home. I love Panera sandwiches but can never quite make them as good at home.

  2. Kim ~ Still thinking about your thirsty soft towels ☺ Brandi says the same thing about sandwiches...except when I make them. LOL She loves mom's sandwiches :-)

  3. Thank looks yummy! I love sprouts on a sandwich, you reminded me what to pick up at the store next time I'm out!

    Have a great day!


  4. I am off traditional sandwiches since I quit eating most grain products in quest of lower carbs. BUT, I use lettuce to wrap up veggies and a slice or 2 of lean meat. Avocados are one of my favorite "sandwich" adds along with tomatoes.

  5. Canadianmom ~ Thanks for stopping over. It was delish. So glad to have sparked your memory ☺

    Writing ~ Sandwich making in lettuce wraps are divine. I have cut way back on breads as well, most because of gluten...I'm just assuming there's something to it because I feel better when I eat less of it. Thanks for the reminder about using lettuce. I wonder about a corn wrap? Organic, of course :-) Thanks so much for stopping by. I was over at your blog and enjoyed your posting on the "new" guidelines :-) Have a great weekend. I think Tucson is supposed to warm up as well :-) ~Blessings, Janet
