Sometimes you're in the mood for the classics and one of those classics, for us anyways, is the BLT. Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato. Simple yet satisfying! It's got your meat, your veggies and using thin wheat buns just a touch of carbs to make a complete meal. 

Are you ready? Let's whip up the ingredients and make ourselves a BLT!




  • 6 slices Turkey Bacon
  • 1 Medium Tomato
  • Tender Ruby Reds (this is a mix of Sweet Red Butter Lettuce and Spinach. You can also substitute with Spinach)
  • 2 t. Fat Free Mayonnaise
  • 100 % Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins. 






This recipe is for TWO sandwiches.
 
First start by frying your Turkey Bacon to your desired crispness. While it's cooking, slice your tomatoes into nice thick slices. 

Take TWO Sandwich Thin buns and toast them if you would like and then lay them on your plate.

Use one teaspoon of Fat Free Mayonnaise for each sandwich.
 
When your Bacon is done, place it between two paper towels to soak up any excess fat. We broke each of ours in half. So there is six pieces for each sandwich.
 
Place your Bacon, thick slices of tomato and top with a hand full  (approximately 1c./ 25g) of your Ruby Red/ Spinach.
 
That's it! Quick and easy.

Dark leafy greens are PACKED with vitamins A, C, E, K & Minerals. If you look this up, you'll find out that they are known to  strengthen our immune system,  improve blood circulation, lower cholesterol,  increase energy and much more. Tomatoes are linked with heart health and lowering your cholesterol as well.


So if you wanna be a super green Buff Dude or Girl you don't have to be exact with this recipe. PILE on the veggies!!
