Hot Avocado and Swiss Sandwich

Hey guys!  Here’s a sneak peak at my lunch today and then part of the big news is at the bottom of this post!

Here are the three simple ingredients to my Hot Avocado and Swiss Sami:


It’s very easy really.  Just take two wedges of low fat Laughing Cow Swiss Cheese and spread one on each side of a Sandwich Thin (you can use bread but Sandwich thins are WAY better!  They’re made by Orrowheat and can be found by the bread or buns at the grocery store.)  Then slice some avocado and make a sandwich out of it!


You can then eat as is but I like it warm.  So I throw it on the George (indoor grill or panini maker).  It melts the cheese a little and makes it so oooey gooey.


Look at all that goodness gushing out the sides!  Yum, yum!


 So you may be thinking, cheese AND avocado?  That’s a lot of fat.  Remember FAT does not make us fat.  TOO MUCH FOOD makes us fat!  Healthy fats like the ones found in avocado are oh so very good for you.  They do wonderful things like increase hormone function, help skin, hair and nails, make you feel full and satisfied longer, increase your metabolism, decrease bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol and so many more things. 

So go eat up this Avocado and Swiss Sami and get in your healthy fats!


Ok, so here is some of the news.  If you are long time readers you know that I have been trying to think of a name for my new website and also my business.  I was thinking of using my name in it but I don’t think it sounds as professional.  I decided to go with (drum roll please…)

Lean Bodies Health and Fitness!

And the website is www.leanbodieshf.com.  Feel free to go check it out!  It is still a little baby and much work needs to be done on it so don’t judge me yet.  This blog will continue probobly until the end of the year and then it will be rolled over to that site.  Don’t worry.  I’ll never leave you completely. 

Go look at my website and let me know what you think!  Have a great weekend!

Sandwich Overload


This title was previously called “Salad on Toast” but how boring is that?  So I spun it and thought of it as an open faced sandwich with veggie overload!  Now THAT’S exciting!  Here is this yummy little lunch idea:

Make a salad however you’d like to.  I usually do this when I’m just having a boring old salad with just chicken or something.  Toss the salad and chicken with your dressing (choose plain balsamic vinegar for 0 calories and sugar). 

Toast a piece of bread and top is with guacamole.  Or not.  Whatever.  I like it that way but it’s still good if you don’t have guacamole. 

Dump your salad on top of the bread and cut bread bites with each salad bite!  This is such a yummy lunch!

Pizza Sandwich


I have heard all about Sandwich Thins but my grocery store has never carried them … UNTIL NOW!  Yay!  I love them!  I have put many different things between their layers and all have been fabulous.  There are only 100 calories in this yummy little bun.  You can use it in place of bread, english muffins, buns or anything! 

The one I want to talk about today is a Pizza Sandwich.  I realize this picture isn’t the best but I didn’t really want to take my sandwich apart and I couldn’t get a better picture of the wonderful insides. 

Anyway, all I did was spread some pizza sauce on each side of the bun.  I then put 2 T. cheese and sliced peppers and onions on one half and some turkey pepporoni on the other half. 

Meanwhile I cooked 3 egg whites on the stove until they were done.  Slapped those in the middle of the sandwich and put the whole thing on the George! 

And there you have a Pizza Sandwich!

I threw this together the other night quite randomly and I LOVED it!!! 

I started by scrambling some eggs, one whole egg and two whites to be exact, with some veggies, brocolli, onion and zuchinni to be exact, again.  After this was all scrambled and cooked I threw it over 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and topped with 1/2 T. real maple syrup.  The syrup gave it a yummy breakfast sweetness.  Brandon topped his with salsa so whichever way you want to go with it will be fantastic!

Guacamole and Hummus Salad


I am known to eat the same thing over and over again when I find something I love.  My breakfast for the last, probobly, month has been this.  This yummy salad has been my favorite lunch as of late. 

I make a big salad with whatever veggies I have on hand.  Today it was romaine, peas and peppers.   I usually add more but I was low on the veggies today.  I also added a hard boiled egg for some extra protein.  For the dressing I top with 2 T. guacamole (I use Wholly Guacamole from Costco – minimal ingredients and I’m too lazy to make my own) and 2 T. hummus.  Then I toss the salad so the “dressings” are all mixed in.  This is such a great, healthy salad!  I love it!

Bbq Ranch Chicken Salad


Here’s an easy salad idea for you.  Grill up some chicken with any seasoning (I used “Kickin’ Chicken).  Throw that and your toppings on your salad.  I topped my salad with bell pepper, red onion and chicken.  For the dressing stir together equal amounts of bbq sauce and low fat ranch.  I used 3/4 T. of each.  This is such a yummy, different tasting salad!  Perfect for a light lunch!
