Many slather mayonnaise on bread, slap some meat between the two pieces and call it a sandwich. This was our lunch today.
I used avocado and spread it on the 7 grain bread. I paired it with yellow heirloom tomatoes, brie, fresh mozzarella cheeses and fresh spinach. I added olive oil, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Fresh mango chunks added color to my plate.
Delicious Re-thinking the sandwich part deux:
Avocado, Tomato, and Hummus Wrap
Assembling ingredients is all that is necessary. There is no need to turn on your oven or stove top. This is one of my favorite wraps when I am traveling. I put the ingredients in a cooler then at lunch time, I just wrap and roll! No need to make the “drive of shame” (as coined by one of my clients) to a fast food establishment. The avocado gives us good fats and oils and helps to metabolize excess estrogen in the body. Hummus is a protein source; the tomatoes supply ample antioxidants; and the cucumbers are a cooling vegetable, rich in silica which supports healthy, hair, bones, and tissue.
1/2 small California avocado, peeled and pitted
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoons hummus, any variety
1 whole grain tortilla
4 slices cucumber
4 to 6 grape tomatoes, halved
Freshly ground black pepper
In a medium bowl, mash avocado; mix with olive oil. Spread avocado and hummus evenly on the tortilla. Top with cucumber slices and tomato halves. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Roll wrap into a cylinder.
Serve with fresh fruit or salad greens.
As a variation you can add 1/4 grilled chicken breast, sliced then proceed with instructions as detailed.
