|All the stuff you see here went into the next sandwich.|
Zucchini is also an excellent source of manganese, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and riboflavin.
Interestingly, many of the beneficial antioxidants found in zucchini are more readily absorbed in the body when the vegetable has been cooked." Add lightly cooked zucchini slices on this sandwich sprinkled with Spike; it would be REALLY good, but I didn't want to spend the time. Sometimes fast and easy is better, but if you have the time you might try it.
Chia is considered one of the ULTIMATE super foods. If you are not familiar with it do some reading. Same with hempseed. Chia is a complete protein which means it contains all the amino acids essential to us humans. It's low glycemic index is great, and that means it has a negligible effect on insulin levels, it’s also hydrophilic, it absorbs 10 times its weight in water–a low-calorie food that is filling because of its volume. It’s rich in B vitamins, iron, calcium, zinc, fiber antioxidants and the anti-inflammatory flavonoid quercetin. Read up on all the studies done on quercetin.
I put that shot in because it sort of shows the tomatoes stuck in the spread. I have little boys and sandwiches tend to fall apart on the way from the plate to their mouths, so I stick them together using the ingredients as natural glue. Also, I have seen so many people sprinkle chia seeds or what have you on the sprouts...and then they fall out of the sandwich...
I could have sliced the tomato better but it worked. I bet you can do better.
Here is a shot of the sprouts and spread...the spread is made locally with fresh ingredients and no preservatives...5 different kinds of real onions. Real Sour Cream, real cream cheese.
I know the family that grows the sprouts...they are not certified organic but I've been to the farm; they don't use chemicals (no pesticides or herbicides) getting certified costs too much I guess. It's a Maui farm and the owners understand the concept of healthy food.
Anyhow here is a quick vid showing how to make it:
If you do a quick search on each of the ingredients you will see that this simple sandwich is a nutritional bonanza....and it's also super tasty! Healthy food should taste GOOD. Nothing worse than having to choke down food that is supposed to be good for you but tastes terrible. This sandwich is kid certified...my sons are not particularly fond of watercress but if you stick it in this sandwich they eat it no problem. I would have, but the store I went to was out.
A lot of behavioral problems can be solved with simple nutrition. Thinking burns calories and in order to keep a healthy brain proper nutrition is essential. FEED YOUR HEAD. The benefits to the rest of your body should be obvious. You'll also be surprised how filling this sandwich is...drink a lot of healthy fluids with it or just plain water. I make a tea out of Yerba Mate, honey, molasses, a dash of ionic trace minerals and some powdered l-glutamine...but that's another vid and post...
Also you could search "Crewton Ramone in the kitchen" I have a couple of other videos as you may have surmised because this is #3. I'll make more as time goes by...
