Open-Faced Avocado Sandwich

Today I was going to tell you that the secret to a super sandwich is the quality of the bread, but since the star ingredient in this sandwich is avocado, I had a change of mind because I found out some very good news about this fruit (…yes it’s a fruit).  To get to the point, the avocado is a powerful anti-inflammatory food that helps to prevent osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It’s also a heart healthy food, and it has anti-cancer benefits. You know that avocados are great in guacamole, but they also taste great in soup, salads, and sandwiches. Some people, even make dessert with avocado — what a sneaky way of getting your kids to like eating it. Read more about the benefits of avocado at the World’s Healthiest Foods.

This sandwich may appear so simple that you may be wondering why to post it at all. I posted it to remind you about this delicious and easy to prepare protein, and it’s too good to neglect. Make it at home, or take the fixings with you to work and enjoy it there.
