Lately, I’ve been extremely busy at work and play. My “play” time has involved preparations for an upcoming wedding on Saturday. My gift to the bride-to-be is decorating the reception tables. It’s been fun, but sadly I’ve had little time to prepare a lunch. I’ve been digging into the Cheez-it box and all kinds of other high-calorie snacks and my scale was bearing witness to this naughtiness.
The bathroom scale is my constant companion. My morning weigh-in helps me keep my weight in check. I knew I had to find some easy-to-make lunch meals to prevent my pantry binging.
- Avocado slices
- Tomato slices
- Alfalfa sprouts
- Baby spinach leaves
- Spreadable cream cheese (low-fat, if available)
- 2 bread slices
- Seedless cucumber slices
Spread cream cheese onto each bread slice. Layer the spinach, alfalfa sprouts, avocado and tomato slices on one of the bread slices. Place second bread slice on top of the last sandwich layer.
Note: For a crustless sandwich, trim off the bread crust
Cut the sandwich diagonally into halves or thirds. Place a several cucumber slices on top of each tea sandwich and serve.
