If you are a vegetarian and struggle with getting in enough protein, here is a great option for lunch or dinner and it’s really easy to make.
1 slice of your favorite bread, toasted
Lowfat or Non-fat Cottage cheese, small curd is easier
1/2 avocado sliced
1 small tomato sliced, heirloom is the best
Toast your bread and spread on layer of cottage cheese. Add a layer of avocado slices and then top with a layer of tomato slices. A good heirloom tomato makes a big difference. My favorite are the purple/brownish varieties.
This open faced sandwich packs 8-10 grams of protein and around 60 mg of calcium from the cottage cheese. The avocado is one of the only vegetables that contains good fat which is good for heart health and it’s loaded with a wide variety of vitamins and minerals.
