I don't have a lot different to report, so I thought I'd post an old favorite recipe that I never got around to posting before. I have quite a few recipe pictures on my computer that I haven't ever posted, and this one is too good to pass up! It is fresh red ripe tomato season and if you are eating on a low carb template or just trying to stay grain free or gluten free, this is a delicious way to get those veggies in: a bacon, lettuce, tomato "sandwich" without the bread! Check it out:
So simple, really: just slice big circles off a large, crisp head of Iceberg lettuce, add a little of your favorite mayonnaise to the bottom "bun" (I use Best Foods Light), add some crisp bacon and a thick slice of red ripe tomato. Then top with the other lettuce "bun", like so:
This makes a great summer lunch! I sometimes like to add thinly sliced turkey breast for a heartier version with more protein and holding power.
Here's another version: instead of mayo, use sliced avocado:
Good stuff right here, especially for July and August!
You can use low sodium bacon, turkey bacon, or whatever kind of bacon fits into your food template. Bacon does not fit into the Medifast Plan, so I personally won't be enjoying this BLT this season. Instead, I can omit the bacon and use turkey for a simple turkey, tomato, avocado "sandwich" that is grain free, gluten free, and on plan.
Enjoy your summer produce!
