I woke up this morning and put on my workout clothes. I did it before I could talk myself out of it. I figured that gave me at least a 50% greater chance of it actually happening. Low and behold I have a workout under my belt. No way, no how was I going to offset that kind of progress with a unhealthy lunch choice so I made a California Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
Making Healthy Choices doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice flavor. Well selected fresh ingredients can deliver all the satisfaction without the guilt of a bad decision. I’ve shared before that finding a lunch buddy who has similar goals not only makes it more fun to create mutually enjoyable dishes, but you can split the cost of ingredients. Note: There are a lot of alfalfa sprouts in a package and the other half of an avocado never tastes quite as good as the first.
I layered slices of multigrain bread with Monterey jack cheese, sliced avocado, red onion, tomato and alfalfa sprouts. To give it just a little something extra I drizzled it with some of our Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing and a grind of freshly cracked black pepper. The combination in this California Grilled Cheese Sandwich was perfect.
