Fit Club Recipe:

Avocado Sandwich

These sandwiches are so tasty! It is from my favorite restaurant that is no longer around.  That makes me sad!  Bethany is an amazing chef and I got a LOT of great ideas from her. 

I like to toast my bread first, but you don't have to.  I also like to use whole grain bread.  Pumpernickel or rye are very good!

spread the toasted bread with hummus or cashew garlic spread (recipe in the Vegan World Fusion Cuisine cookbook by Mark Reinfeld, Bo Rinaldi and the Chefs of The Blossoming Lotus)

sprinkle with pumpkin or sunflower seeds

top with 1/4 avocado slices.  fan them out so they look really pretty!

sprinkle with chili powder or Parma or nutritional yeast


Yesterday's eats:

Breakfast: Chocolate Shakeology made with 8 oz almond milk and 1/2 scoop of vegan protein powder

Lunch:  veggie stir fry with brown rice, tofu and black eyed peas

Snack:  I was wanting pickles for some strange reason, so I had a couple of spoonfuls of potato salad with dill pickle relish on top

Dinner:  Avocado Sandwich and side salad with Brianna's salad dressing

I was still wanting something.  I waited 20 mins and decided to have a little Soy Dream with Ahlaska chocolate sauce and 1/2 banana - perfect way to end the day!

 I had 64 oz of water and 1 glass of lemonade iced tea

Workout was Body Gospel's Gospel Glory!

The Vegan World Fusion Cuisine is one of the most beautiful cookbooks I have. I love it and use it often. Check it out!!
