Everything is Better With Avocado

Since my birthday on Monday, I haven't really done anything all week except work. We've been super busy at the pharmacy and I've been working between 9 and 10 hour days every day. I don't mind though because 1: I really need the money and 2: I don't have anything better to do.

That being said, I may not have done anything super exciting today, but I certainly ate some blog-worthy food.

This morning when I was rummaging through the refrigerator and cupboards looking for something to take for lunch, all I could find was the remainder of the spinach-feta loaf from Bay Bread that I bought last week. Then I remembered that we had some frozen organic ham leftover from Christmas and I decided to throw together a sandwich. Little did I know that this sandwich would be epic.

That's ham, a slice of swiss cheese, spinach and about a tbsp of light mayo. I put the top piece of bread on, cut it up, and was already looking forward to lunch.

But then, I realized that it was missing something.

Something very important.

This sandwich was going to be good, but to be amazing, it needed one more ingredient.

Oh my dear avocado, how I love you so.

Much better.

Best sandwich I've made in months.

I really need to start buying avocados again. Every time I come home, I remember how much I love them because my mom always has some in the refrigerator. 1/4 of an avocado gives you a serving of healthy fats, plus they're delicious! I also love putting them on salads.

Dinner was a chicken burger on a whole wheat bun with the same toppings as the sandwich. Sides included sweet potato fries and canteloupe.

It was delish, but I can't take credit for this yummy meal. The madre was the chef behind this dish :)

I had a major sweet tooth after dinner, so I went back to the kitchen for a half of a banana plus a big gob of vanilla almond butter.

It was definately a day of good eats.


  1. Hey Krista! I've enjoyed your blog and I want you to know you've inspired me to pick up some avocado tomorrow when I do my grocery shopping. Thank you! Question for you: how do you make those sweet potato fries?

  2. Hey Jen I'm glad you enjoy my blog! The potato fries are super easy! First you peel the sweet potatos (my mom buys the longer ones rather than the fatter ones because they're easier to cut) and then cut them into long strips. Then toss them in some olive oil in a bowl and then put them on a piece of greased foil on a baking shake and lightly salt. Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes until they're fork tender (time varies depending on how thick the slices are) and that's it!
