I’ll eat sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack. I love sandwiches! They’re particularly helpful when you’re a breastfeeding mom who, as a result, has an appetite that would rival a competitive eater’s and must be able to eat with one hand.
My Anytime Sandwich is healthy and versatile. It starts with your favorite bread (rye is generally dairy-free but always check the ingredients to be certain, and Food For Life Sprouted Whole Grain Bread is a tasty vegan option: http://m.foodforlife.com/product/breads/ezekiel-49-sprouted-whole-grain-bread). Slather your favorite hummus on two pieces of bread. Top one of the hummus-smeared bread pieces with tomato slices and sprinkle with salt and pepper to enhance the tomato flavor. Pile your favorite sprouts (I like clover and alfalfa sprout, but broccoli sprouts are also tasty and radish sprouts add a spicy zing) on top of the tomato, close the sandwich, and enjoy.
You can boost the lactogenic (milk supply boosting) qualities of the sandwich by sprinkling on some flax meal, chia seeds, nutrional yeast, and/or brewer’s yeast. You can easily customize this sandwich for breakfast by adding scrambled or fried egg and avocado. You can make it meatier for lunch or dinner with avocado and poached chicken. You could toss on some dairy-free cheese (Creamy Original Chao Original slices are my favorite: https://store.veganessentials.com/mobile/vegan-chao-cheese-slices-by-field-roast-p4350.aspx) or bacon. Amp up the veggie quotient with shredded carrots and thinly sliced cucumber and radish.
