My Pregnant Plate – Dinner

There is a little darling who, essentially, eats everything I eat, and her tiny taste buds are being formed based on my meal choices. I figure that it will never be easier to make sure Baby Love eats her fruits and veggies, so I’m taking advantage of my current complete control. I may be becoming a little fanatical, but everything I eat now first has to pass the “would I want my kiddo to eat this someday?” test. If not, I don’t. 

This is one of my favorite, favorite dinners. It's so easy and so yummy!
Veggie Sandwich (makes 2)
I like to eat my veggie sandwiches open faced, Tim likes to eat his close faced, slathered with butter, and with no black olives. I like to use grape tomatoes, he likes to use big slices of large tomatoes. The greatest part about this meal is it is so adaptable to the person’s tastes. The avocado is the best part, but if you don’t have avocado you can use hummus instead. Yum!

4 pieces multi-grain sunflower seed sourdough bread
(or another yummy bread of your choice)

2 avocados, mashed
organic tomatoes, sliced
mini cucumbers, sliced
red onion, sliced
black olives, sliced
red peppers, sliced

Mash the avocado and add the juice of one lime and salt to taste. Lightly toast the sourdough bread and spread on the mashed avocado. Top with your choice of veggies. (My favorites are the ones listed above.) Enjoy!
