Tasty Tomato Sandwich

Simple, yet satisfying.

Tasty Tomato Sandwich

1 Tbsp vegan mayo or avocado
1 fresh tomato, or a handful of grape tomatoes
2 slices whole wheat bread (Ezekiel bread works great!)

Toast bread, spread mayo or avocado, slice tomatoes, and a little pepper tastes great on it too! Enjoy! (Make sure you don't use dairy cheese, as it is an unhealthy option...this is an outdated video!)

Fresh TOMATOES are high in potassium, vitamins A, C, and E. They also have some lycopene, though you can get a lot more of this and other phytochemicals in tomatoes by cooking the tomatoes -- like in pasta sauce and salsa! The small amount of fat in the cheese will help to absorb some of these valuable nutrients, which help with anything from cancer prevention to weight loss!

A great article about the benefits of tomatoes is written by Dr Leo Galland, author of Power Healing: Use the New Integrated Medicine to Cure Yourself and you can read it HERE!

For more recipes with cooked tomatoes try:

Mexican Fiesta Bowl (2-minute Friday Night Dinner)
Super-Easy Guacamole


First of all how do you get it?  Look at the INGREDIENTS LIST.  The FIRST ingredient should be WHOLE wheat or WHOLE grain.  The word ENRICHED should NOT be on the ingredients.

If you get a product like this, you will find that your bread will have:
MORE vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals!

SHARE IF YOU DARE! Do you like your tomatoes better raw or cooked? Or not at all? What is your favorite veggie?
