Nature's Pride Foodbuzz Tastemaker Entry

Nature's Pride Tastemaker

I decided to participate in the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program with Nature's Pride Bread.  Nature's Pride sent me a coupon for a free product and I chose their Healthy Multi-Grain Bread.  When I saw the opportunity for this Tastemaker opportunity, I knew exactly what I would make!  It's simply called Laura's Veggie Sandwich.  This sandwich is one of my absolutely favorite sandwiches to eat!  Several years ago I was craving something vegetarian that was full of flavor for lunch and this is what I came up with. 

Laura's Veggie Sandwich

Laura Veggie Sandwich
2 Slices of Nature's Pride Healthy Multi-Grain Bread
1/2 Cup Fresh Organic Baby Spinach
1/2 Avocado, sliced
8 Slices of Organic Cucumber
1/3 Cup of Mixed Organic Sprouts
3 Slices of Tomato
2 T. Spicy Pepper Hummus- I made my own Peppadew Pepper brand spicy hummus (make your own or purchase your favorite brand)
Freshly ground sea salt and pepper to taste

This sandwich is so quick and easy to put together.
Spread 1 T. of hummus on each slice of bread. 
Layer cucumber slices on bottom slice of bread followed by the baby spinach. Add avocado slices on top of baby spinach.
Add mixed organic sprouts and top with tomato slices.

I like to have some fresh fruit and cottage cheese or Greek yogurt with the sandwich to round out a perfectly balanced and healthy meal. Enjoy!


  1. I never had a vegie sandwich until I was in my 40's, now I can't get enough of them! This one looks great.

  2. Thanks! I crave veggie's more than meat & this one fills me up!

  3. Your sandwich sounds delicious! A really good veggie sandwich on healthy bread like this one makes me feel so good about eating well at lunchtime :)
