Recipe For Southwestern Style Open Faced Sandwich


I have been uber busy completing my third ebook (available next week!!) all about healthy kids! All the cooking, writing, and photographing has left me with little time for anything else so I thought I’d give you a glimpse at what my typical meals look like when I’m super busy!

I don’t usually cook when my schedule is crazy like this. Instead, I “put things together”. This simply means that I go to the grocery store and stock up on staples. For me that includes:

  • raw veggies for snacking
  • hummus
  • guacamole
  • sprouted bread, like Ezekiel bread
  • avocados
  • greens or sprouts
  • eggs
  • salsa
  • cooked rotisserie chicken

Things that are already prepared and can be placed together to create a meal. With this grocery list I can easily make avocado toast, vegan sandwiches, omelettes, fried egg sandwiches, veggies and dip, and chicken and steamed veggies.

Today my “recipe” was an easy open faced sandwich that took me about 5 mins to put together and maybe even less time to eat!
