Answering the question “what am I going to have for lunch?” doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, it doesn’t get more simple, quick, and easy than the H.L.T. Sandwich! If you’re trying to eat more plant-based or less processed food to help reduce inflammation and feel healthier, then this spin on the classic B.L.T. sandwich is just what you’re looking for.
What (your ingredients):
2 pieces whole grain bread
1 Roma tomato
3 tablespoons hummus
4 leaves butter lettuce (bibb lettuce also works)
Pinch of seasoned salt (I use )
How (your directions):
Toast bread to desired doneness.
Meanwhile, slice Roma tomato into even slices.
When the bread is toasted, spread each piece evenly with hummus.
Top with 4 leaves of butter lettuce and the sliced tomatoes.
Season with your favorite seasoned salt.
Why (the science): Instead of processed and high-sodium bacon, give hummus a try! It has more fiber and less sodium than bacon (too much sodium increases your risk of high blood pressure and heart disease).
