A month ago I received an e-mail from the social media manager for the Meatless Monday campaigns. It was a call for original recipe submissions to help encourage the Meatless Monday initiative, from many other Meatless Monday Bloggers like me. The challenge was to submit a recipe that was heart healthy, which means low in fat, low in saturated fat, low in cholesterol, and high in fiber. The recipe also had to yield a delicious and visually stimulating product. They wanted the whole package, delicious, scrumptious, and nutritious. I jumped in and submitted a few of my recipes for consideration. Much to my delight my recipe for chickpea and avocado salad sandwiches made the cut! Today is the release of the free e-book and it contains quite a few delicious looking items ranging from breakfasts, lunch, dinner, and desserts. They are all heart healthy, packed with goodness for your body, and look stellar. I can’t wait to try them all. Each recipe has nutritional information broken down for you, and best of all the e-book is FREE! Get yours today and get motivated to join the Meatless Monday campaign and start on a heart healthy journey! Make one of these delicious recipes today. Your body and all those that you feed will thank you with their whole heart.
Here’s a picture of my winning recipe, it’s winning in more ways than one. It may be a little unusual, a little off the beaten path, a little out of the box, but the unexpected is joyously wonderful. Even my carnivorous husband ate the salad right out of the container before I could even make him a sandwich. He also requested that I make it again which is a great compliment as to the tastiness of this sandwich. If he loved it, you will too! So try this little gem of a sandwich on any of the other recipes in the We Love Comfort Food: Heart Healthy Meatless Monday recipes.
(I am pretty proud of this!) Nutritional information for my sandwich is the breakdown here as provided by the gang at Meatless Monday:
