Winner, Winner, Turkey Sandwich?!

After a solid morning workout, I always crave a hearty sandwich for lunch.  I like salads fine enough, but I've always been a sammy girl at the midday meal.  While I usually stick to the same old turkey sandwich, I also enjoy making new creations.  Today between my slices of 10-grain bread was turkey, cheddar cheese, light mayo, jalapeno mustard, cucumber slices, red onions, pickles and romaine lettuce.  How can does one actually fit it all that in their mouth?  Somehow I manage just fine...

What is your 'must have' on a sandwich?  Mine is probably cheese.  It's high calories, but I'm a Cheesehead through and through.  Mayo is pretty high up there too.

What is your favorite sandwich creation?  Keepin' it healthy of course!  Last week I made a new Tuna Salad just in time for the Lenten season. Here's the recipe...

1 can 12oz Starkist Tuna Light In Water
1/2 ripe avacado, mashed or finely diced
1/2 roma tomato, diced
2 medium stalks of celery, finely chopped
1/4 c. cucumber, finely chopped
2-3 T. red onion, finely chopped
1/4 c. yellow pepper, finely chopped
1 T. Miracle Whip Light
1/2 lime - freshly squeezed juice
salt and pepper to taste

Mix it all together.  Serve on large romaine lettuce leaves... or toast, crackers, tortilla wrap, etc.  Enjoy! Makes 3 good servings (Each 155 calories, 8 carbs, 6 fat, 20 protein, 2 calcium, 3 fiber)

Today's Workout:  Spinning class + easy 3 mile run (29:15)
Up Next (Tues):  INTERVALS 1600, 3200, and 2x800.  Ugh, I hate loooong ones like this.

Winner, Winner...
I had a giveaway contest this week to win "The ABC's of Yoga for Kids" book by Teresa Anne Power.  If you missed my review, check it out HERE.  The winner is The Cooks.  Congrats to Danielle and her son Carson (who ran his first 5K this weekend in 30 minutes flat!).  In addition to running, I know they'll enjoy doing yoga together too.


  1. Thanks!!!! Wait until your girls are old enough to catch the running bug. Carson is honestly the best running partner I've ever had.

  2. I only like sandwiches that are made for me...they always seem to taste better.

    I love to put turkey, avacado, lettuce, tomoatos, yellow peppers in a wrap! Delish!

  3. Icrave a turkey and mozz wrap after a long run--probably the protein??

    Sandwich must have: Spinach or something green! Love the texture of crisp veggies!

  4. I am not a fan of tuna so that's not something you will ever find on my sandwich. My fave sand is egg salad, lettuce and double fiber wheat bread.

  5. what a delish looking sandwich!!
    I LOVE a turkey sandwich from a deli near me. Its got the BEST meat and bread and fillings!!!

  6. Turkey sandwich with avocado spread,cheese,alfafa sprout, cucumbers, tomatoes on whole wheat. Yummy. Your sandwich looks great.

  7. Ooo, the avocado in the tuna salad looks delicious! Will have to try because I love creamy salads like that.

  8. I have been making wraps more than anything lately. Tuna with pepperjack, sun-dried tomatos and romaine lettuce on a tortilla wrap.

  9. I am a huge fan of avocado slices & fresh mozzarella cheese! (Also a cheesehead!)
