Seriously, I think it’s time I focused on lunch. I often don’t eat lunch and I get very bored with the turkey sandwich routine. Lunch can’t be work or I just plain won’t bother. Maybe I’m lazy (totally a possibility) or maybe it’s just that I have a huge to-do list (and nap/lunch time is the only time to work on it).
I am also trying to make better choices about what I eat. Recently I have discovered that I have small cholesterol problem and am now taking meds for it. I really don’t like that. I want to get off those meds ASAP. So, being heart healthy is a requirement.
I get so confused and frustrated with the don’t eat that, that’s genetically modified, only eat organic advice that sometimes it’s just easier to not eat. (Yeah, I know, back to the lazy part.)
Anyway, my Mom got me a subscription to Whole Living magazine. It is a wonderful magazine and I really enjoy reading it from cover to cover each time one comes in the mail. April’s issue has “Build a Better Sandwich” on the cover. It promised “30 different delicious combos to boost nutrition and drop pounds.” I skeptically opened to the article thinking that it would, of course, include hard-to-find ingredients or ingredients that I certainly didn’t think were delicious. I was wrong.
Just look at my lunch today. Doesn’t it look yummy?
It was oh so tasty and supposedly good for me (is that possible?). I have never eaten ricotta besides in a dish like lasagna or some other Italian pasta dish. It seems kind of weird to have it in a sandwich. Wow! I guess weird can be good.
Ricotta and Strawberry Sandwich
2 tbsp Fresh Ricotta
1 Seeded Whole Grain Roll, halved (I used a Honey Wheat English Muffin)
3 Strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 tsp Honey
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Spread ricotta on both sides of whole-grain roll. Top with strawberries. Drizzle with honey and season with pepper.
I forgot the pepper!!! I guess I was so hungry watching this come together and taking photos that I forgot to season with pepper. I will do that next time! I bet it adds more yummy, if that’s possible.
Here’s a link to the online version of the Whole Living article – Super Sandwich Combinations. There’s 29 more varieties to try out! I’ll be posting some more soon!
Looks like an awesome treat rather than a healthy sandwich! Works for me!
