Lent is here (and almost over). Being Catholic, I practice the fast/abstinence-from-meat thing on Fridays during this time. I love seafood anyway so it’s not a very difficult thing for me. These are two of my favorite healthy low carb-lunches – the first since I’ve discovered multigrain bread (altho I don’t eat a lot of bread, I usually buy whole wheat) – and the second since I discovered tempeh.
For the sandwich, I mixed up a simple tuna salad (tuna, mayo, chopped celery, chopped onion, salt & pepper), spread grey poupon mustard on one slice and added sliced avocados, lettuce and alfalfa sprouts. Yum! I feel so healthy when I eat this. Is your mouth watering yet? lol
The other meal is simple, plain and VERY healthy! Here I have flaxseed tempeh, lettuce and avocado. I sprinkle soy sauce or Bragg’s soy protein on the tempeh to give it a little flavor.
