Surprisingly Delicious Lettuce Sandwich

I love this delicious lettuce sandwich because it is yummy and so easy to make! This is a photo of my lettuce sandwich that I had last week.  My father got me into these when I was a child as he would make them for us.

Romaine lettuce has been called ‘the perfect weight loss food’ and ‘rabbit food’ but it is so much more. With amazing healing benefits and 20% protein by calories, it could be called ‘gorilla food’ instead.  It is low in calories and high in fiber and cellulose. It is heart-healthy and has a great ratio of omega-3 fatty acids.  Lettuce is a great alkaline-forming food that is low on the glycemic index and I like to pile it on this lettuce sandwich.

The avocado is bursting with lots of health benefits and is so strongly associated with fertility and aphrodisiacs that the Aztecs would lock up virgin daughters during avocado harvest time to keep them safe.  Read the details and check out the infographic on this wonderful Superfood. Some people avoid avocados due to their high-fat content. Most of us know by now that avocados have the kind of fat that actually helps you lose weight!

Himalayan Salt is actually good for you! 100% NATURAL PINK & CERTIFIED: Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt is Kosher Certified, Non-GMO, and does not contain any MSG, Soy, Gluten, Dairy, or anti-caking agents.

Vege salt – One of my all-time favourite condiments is Spike Seasoning which is a tasty seasoning always in my kitchen.  It is a special blend of 38 herbs, vegetables, and exotic spices, combined with some salt. It is gluten-free but not soy-free.

1 thought on “Surprisingly Delicious Lettuce Sandwich”

  1. Everything about this sandwich is healthy except the bread. Almost all kinds of bread are toxic because they contain high amounts of lectins which make and keep you sick. This is an upcoming breakthrough that is starting to be recognized. A truly healthy and delicious sandwich is romaine lettuce, in place of the bread, and avocado, onion, lemon, salt, herbs etc. as the filling.
