I’m not the biggest fan of the “impossible” meat that has swept the nation. If people are eating more greens and less meat, I’m cool with that, but what exactly goes into that “impossible” meat so that they can be cooked, frozen and sold to fast-food restaurants?
The other day I got inspired on a vegetarian sandwich with a flavor combination was so good that I suggest ALL parents try this with their kids to get them to eat more veggies and natural foods.
Yesterday, (Sunday) was when I prepare for the week ahead, because an hour or two can set the whole week up for success.
In fact, I documented it on LIFT Enrichment’s Instagram story (I’m not that good at stories, but I share a key tip I use to make my week go smoothly)
I was in Beverly Hills to meet with my hair stylist, who I’ve been going to for over 8 years and is incredible.
Then, I went to Blue Bottle Coffee coffee, got my usual pour over dark roast coffee and then this SANDWICH caught my eye.
Next to their French-style ham-and-cheese on baguette with butter (yum!) was
“Sweet Potato Sandwich with Feta”
In front of me was a beautiful sandwich on a fresh baguette (the small kind, for a single sandwich) with a nice piece of roasted sweet potato in the center. Surrounding it was Feta cheese, arugula and pickled red onions, which add a bit of acidity and complexity to the dish.
The sandwich was …so nice. The baguette added a bit of chew to compliment the tang of the feta and onions, while the sweet potato had a hint of natural sweetness. I didn’t even miss not having a slice of turkey in the middle.
Sweet potatoes are LOADED with vitamins such as:
- Vitamin A, for your eyes
- Antioxidants to help protect against cancer and maintain healthy blood pressure
- Choline, which helps with sleep and reduces inflammation
- Vitamin E, which supports eye health
- Plus they’ve got small amounts of calcium, iron, magnesium, folat and zinc.
