Open-faced Tomato, Mozzarella & Habanero Pesto Sandwich

IMG_6418 copy copy

I just made these sandwiches for me and my boyfriend and they were so good I thought I’d share. This one is more of an idea than a recipe- I bought all of the ingredients at the farmer’s market in Santa Monica (minus the vegan mozzarella) but you can buy these same ingredients are your local grocery store if you don’t have a farmer’s market nearby.

B.A.L.T Wrap & Spicy Yam Fries


This was super yummy & only about $5 for the entire meal per person (at a restaurant you would pay double that). Plus the sweet potatoes, avocado & lettuce are all in season! Yum, yum, yum. I wanted to share this because it was so delicious and easy to make.

Southwest Veggie Burger Wraps

This is more of a product review than a recipe (but I included the recipe too). Sometimes if I’m working a lot or feeling lazy, I want a 10-minute meal that is healthy and will fill me up. That’s where store-bought veggie burgers come into play. Sure it’s great to make your own patties but sometimes it’s just not possible.

‘Just Peachy’ Grilled Cheeze

This sandwich was just peachy (literally). I had it for dinner but could easily eat this for breakfast too + it’s really simple to make. Peaches are in season so stock up and eat them while you can. I love to snack on a beautiful, ripe peach but they’re also great to cook with! Just make sure you buy organic or pesticide-free since peaches are on the dirty dozen and contain some of the most pesticides. I purchase mine at my local farmer’s market and talk to the farmer’s directly- sometimes they aren’t a certified organic farm, however they do not use any pesticides.

Hummus & Veggie Sandwich Lunch Box

Head to your local farmer’s market, co-op, bakery or grocery store and pick out a loaf of your favorite whole grain bread (or make your own!) For me this week it was a garlic and herb organic whole grain round loaf from the farmer’s market that is the size of my face. Use your new fresh-baked bread to make a delicious fresh vegetable sandwich 🙂

Light Mock “Tuna” Salad Sandwich

This is the lighter version of the mock tuna salad. While I don’t typically count calories, this sandwich only has 295 calories  so it’s perfect to pair with a vegetable soup or another side dish. It also makes a great snack spread onto crackers. It’s soy and gluten-free too for all of those with food allergies/intolerances. I will be posting a heartier version in the coming weeks for a tuna melt and also a nicoise salad 🙂
