Yumm Yumm Sammie

I love sandwiches. I honestly look forward to holiday dinners not for what you eat on the holiday but what you can put between 2 pieces of bread the day after! I guess I come by that honestly, my daddy ate everything as a sandwich. His favorite was mamma's meatloaf smothered with gravy on wheat bread. Now that I am older I have to watch what I eat a little bit more. My favorite sandwich hands down would have to be turkey and mayo. Most of the time the deli turkey is full of salt and we wont even talk about mayo! Recently I noticed that the deli offers more meats that are low in sodium and low in calories! So I was on a quest to create a healthier alternative to turkey and mayo so this is what I came up with. It may be silly to some that I am blogging about a sandwich however this sandwich is so yummy and it is only 403 calories!!! 

Yumm Yumm Sammie

2 slices 5 grain Italian bread
1 Tbs. spicy brown mustard
1/2 hass (california) avocado
1/2 cup baby spinach
2 slices deli low sodium turkey breast

Cut your avocado long ways like in the pic below, rotating your knife around the seed in the middle.


once you open it up you will see this 

If you are only making 1 sandwich put the other half of the avocado in your fridge with the seed still in the avocado (This will help it to not oxidize and turn brown).
Make parallel cuts through the avocado and be careful not to cut the skin. Scoop out the avocado with a spoon as seen below and place it onto a plate.

Take your bread and spread the mustard on both slices. 
Build your sandwich anyway you like. 
If you want to add other veggies like lettuce, onion and tomato feel free this just happens to be the way I like it! 

Just as a note the creaminess of the avocado makes up for me not having mayo and although avocado is one of the more fattening fruits, it is the good fat that the body needs!
