We felt it was only appropriate to start our blog with a Bacon Lettuce Tomato Sandwich in honor of our blog's name.  However, we put a little monounsaturated fat spin on it by making it a Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado and Tomato sandwich (with spinach!).

Out version of a B.L.A.T

Start with a ripe avocado and sliced tomato

We used turkey bacon to cut back on the saturated fat 

Add a little soup for a side...

And combine!  

Servings: 2

4 slices whole wheat bread
1 pack Trader Joe's Turkey Bacon
1 Beefsteak Tomato
1/2 Avocado, sliced
1-2 cups fresh spinach 


1.  Heat a non-stick skillet under medium head.  
2.  Add turkey bacon, about 4-5 slices at a time, until fully cooked ~5-6 minutes.  This may have to be done in 2 batches.
3. Assemble sandwiches with whole wheat bread, 4 turkey bacon slices, 2 slices tomato and about 1/4 of avocado per sandwich.
4. Serve with a salad or some soup on a chilly day!
