This is a quick, simple, and nutrient dense sandwich that you can easily make at home. I chose to feature kale because there are very important benefits to consuming it. Kale is high in fiber, iron, and filled with antioxidants. It helps lower cholesterol and supports your cardiovascular system. It is also high in calcium; which in turn will help keep your bones strong. Kale aides in detoxing your body and you will start to feel more refreshed.
You will need:
2 pieces of bread (I used whole wheat)
Hummus (I used Whole Foods low fat)
Half of a lemon
Optional for side snack:
A spoonful of your favorite seeds
To season the kale, I simply squeezed lemon juice and sprinkled chili flakes.
Slice the cucumbers.
Spread the hummus on one slice of bread.
Layer on the cucumbers.
Then layer on the seasoned kale.
Spread hummus on the other slice of bread.
Assemble and…done! Quick, easy, and so good for you.
Now slice your bananas. I love bananas and peanut butter together. Bananas are a great source of potassium and vitamin c. I dipped it into a blend of pumpkin seeds and watermelon kernels that I bought from a farmers market. It’s a great alternative to sugary sweets to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Replace your processed lunch with a vitamin rich sandwich. Your heart and health will thank you later ❤ Cheers to a happier and healthier lifestyle!
