This lunch may blow your mind… when you taste it.
Let’s be honest – I made this one up in my head. I have to say – this lunch is definitely different; but, in a really good way.
Sure, peaches and raw almonds on a sandwich with peanut butter and goat cheese may sound weird at first, but it’s really freakin delicious. Oops. Excuse me for just saying “freakin.” My mom told me when I was nine that I should consider that a curse word. Sorry for cursing, mom (she reads my blog) – but this sandwich is worth it.
The Testing Panel: PASS (with enthusiastic thumbs up)
I don’t post stuff willy nilly! There’s approval process before a new recipe can be posted on the blog. A panel of three (give or take a couple) is required to put forth their opinions.
So far, this sandwich has been sampled to my mom, my sister Bri, and my dietitian intern Courtney. They all passed it – enthusiastically! I know even the common palate will like this because Courtney doesn’t eat a lot of “weird foods” for lunch and she thought it was good. As for my mom and my sister – they raved about it.
I admit – I have NOT tried this recipe out on a male. But, if we’re being honest, most of them will eat anything you put in front of their face. So, why bother. I want to post about it now. Not next week when I might FINALLY encounter an unsuspecting male! (Ahem… not a lot of those in my life right now – if you know what I mean)
Without any further ado -allow me to introduce you to my very sophisticated and lovely 8/14/12 Grown Up Lunch… Ahem… Mrs. Almond Peach Sandwich. Clearly, she [the sandwich] is a girl.
Recipe: Almond Peach Peanut Butter Sandwich with Honey Goat Cheese
- 2 Slices Wheat Sourdough Bread from Uprise Bakery (Columbia, MO) – 40 grams carbohydrate
- 2 Tbsp Honey Almond Goat Cheese from HyVee – non carb
- 10 Raw Almonds – non carb
- 1/2 Peach, sliced from the farmer’s market- 7 grams carbohydrate
- 1-2 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter – non carb
- Toast the bread. While still hot, spread the goat cheese and top with almonds on one slice of bread.
- On the other slice of bread, spread peanut butter and top with sliced peach (recommend fresh peaches as they are in season right now).
- Put two parts of the sandwich together and enjoy. So delicious!
A Note to the Diabetics: One Sandwich – 47 grams of carbohydrate. If you need 60 grams of carbohdyrate per meal, you could add a cup of milk to drink. Milk is always nice with peanut butter sandwiches.
