I have to tell you, sometimes when I get home from a long day I can’t figure out what to eat. I am starving. I’m so starving that I walk in circles around my kitchen. I open the fridge. I close the fridge. I open the pantry. I close the pantry. I stare in the freezer. I go back to the fridge. I. AM. STARVING!!! I am so hungry that the thought of cooking seems ridiculous. I DON’T HAVE TIME TO COOK! I’M HUNGRY NOW! It’s moments like these that I want to throw in the towel and just EAT WHATEVER! I’m utilizing all strength within me not to call the local pizza delivery guy.
I know you’ve been there, too. I’m not crazy enough to believe I’m the only one who does this. But, alas, there’s hope! The other day amidst pacing in my kitchen, contemplating what carry out joint to call, I figured out a crazy, flavorful, and easy solution. It takes about 5 minutes to make and it hits every taste bud! Best part? It doesn’t throw me off the wagon and it’s a total classic. I give you…the B.L.A.T.: Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado, and Tomato. A classic meal, but lightened up just for you! Perfect for those I HAVE NOTHING TO EAT moments.
Time: 5 minutes
- 1 Whole Wheat Tortilla
- 1/2 a tomato sliced
- 2 strips of bacon (or turkey bacon)
- 1/2 an avocado
- 1 tbsp low fat mayo
- Cook your bacon over medium heat. While bacon cooks, prep tomatoes, avocado, and lettuce.
- Spread mayo onto the tortilla and fill with ingredients. Serve with a side of hummus chips (NEW FROM KASHI!!!) 🙂
Classic flavors, pumped up with avocado! Simple and easy to make on those weeknights! ENJOY! 🙂
