Anyone Else Tired of Eating?
By Rosalyn Hoffman on December 28, 2011
It starts at Thanksgiving and doesn't seem to let up until after the first of January: one after another big-complicated-guilt-inducing-stomach-enhancing meals and desserts. We don't know about you-- but, we're tired of it all--and it's not even New Year's!
Don't get nervous, we still crave tasty food, it's just we sick of the unhealthy eating pattern we've gotten stuck in. So, we're really excited about the lunch we just concocted by scrounging around in the kitchen to use up leftovers (so thrifty!) from all our holiday entertaining.
To make this great open faced sandwich: spread a tablespoon of chipotle hummus on a slice of toasted 100% whole wheat bread; use a mandolin to slice fine slivers of radishes and carrots; shave a slice of fresh sharp cheddar cheese off a block; top it off with chopped fresh tomatoes and lettuce.
Healthy, easy to make and more satisfying than most of the fancy dinners we've had this season!
