Speaking of greens, my favorite thing to do, whenever I'm eating any sandwich, is load it with organic greens. Sometimes it's spinach and arugula, sometimes a spring mix, sometimes baby kale. Whatever the choice, I make sure that my greens are capable of delivering powerful nutrients and iceberg lettuce just doesn't cut it for me. Although I don't have it pictured here, I've also started adding alfalfa sprouts to create a little flavor kick and an extra boost of nutrition.
Finally, I add the "piece de resistance," in the form of omega 3 fats and protein. The salmon makes the meal just a bit heartier. There's also another variation of this sandwich I make includes using King Oscar sardines. Along with the omega 3s, the sardines also elevate the amount of calcium I'm getting in this meal. Believe it or not, I actually prefer to enjoy sandwich with sardines. It just seems to taste better but isn't as visually appealing which is why I opted to display the salmon sandwich instead.
I try to remain intentional when I eat this sandwich taking in small bites and enjoying every bit of it. This isn't just a simple snack. It's a nutritional powerhouse! Just looking at these pictures is making me hungry. So what are you having for lunch today? Is it possible for your to tweak the recipe just a little bit to make it a tad more nutritious? What if you did this to all of your meals, every day? What difference could it make for you long-term?
