As it turns out, I’ve been so busy that I completely missed my blog 1 year anniversary…back in July
Ooops right? Busy much? I really can’t believe this blog of mine has been up for a whole year!..and a few months now!
So in honor of The Healthy Housewife’s one year anniversary..I’m re-vamping an original recipe that has become one of our go-to weekly meals.
Turkey bacon- in comparison to regular bacon, turkey bacon is slightly higher in sodium so be sure to buy the nitrate free, lower sodium brands. Two slices of turkey bacon contain about 4 grams of fat and 70 calories, whereas two strips of regular pork bacon contain, on average, some 7 grams of fat and 100 calories.
Ezekiel bread- Low carb, and choc full of sprouted grains, wheat, soybeans, lentils, and seeds which provide high-fiber, as well as protein.
One of my first ever blog entries was on the B.L.A.T, and how I first came to love it. The obsession grew, however, preceding my husband’s experience with an extraordinary BLT in Tampa. He came home and told me the components, and I knew I had to re-create a healthier at-home version.
Since the creation of this new spin on my B.L.A.T, it has become a weekly staple in our home. Some people have Taco Tuesdays or Spaghetti Mondays. We have BLAT Fridays…and boy are they good! Seriously, please trust me when I say the flavor of this B.L.A.T is out of this world. So what are you waiting for? Make it a B.L.A.T night tonight!
(makes 2 sandwiches)
4 slices of Ezekiel bread
5-6 slices of turkey bacon (I prefer Applegate Farms)
2 slices jalapeno-jack cheese
1 ripe avocado
1 ripe tomato
Some lettuce (whatever kind you prefer)
¼ cup of homemade or store bought mayonnaise
¼ tsp lemon juice
¼ tsp Garlic powder
½ tsp of oregano
Start by crisping turkey bacon in a skillet over medium heat. When done, place on paper towel to soak up any remaining grease.
Meanwhile, combine lemon juice, garlic powder, and oregano with mayo. Stir to combine and spread onto Ezekiel bread.
Top bread with cheese, turkey bacon, lettuce, avocado, and sliced tomato. Serve and obsess over the complexity of flavor!.
