Tomato & Green Onion Sandwich

Life is so busy! The holidays are almost here and so is the busy holiday season.  All of a sudden traffic gets worse, work gets busier, stores are packed morning to night, and life feels just a little more hectic.  Not only is it important for our minds to escape to simple places such as reading a book or going for a walk on a chilly Fall day, but sometimes we need to let our bellies escape to simple eats as well; to me one of the best escapes is a simple tomato sandwich. Udi’s Gluten-Free bread spread with unsalted, creamy butter, layered with juicy tomato slices, fresh green onion, salt and pepper are all I need to escape for a few minutes and give my body and mind a break from the busy holiday season. Healthy and light, tomato sandwiches are not only a nutritious part of my diet, but also bring back childhood memories when life was just a little simpler.

Fun facts about green onions (aka scallions or spring onions):

  • Green onions are high in antioxidants, fiber, vitamins K & A
  • Allicin in green onions helps prevent stroke and other coronary diseases
  • You can easily have an endless supply of green onions – simply put the remainder of your green onion root in a mason jar of water, sit it in a sunny spot, and you’ll have new green onion in a few days (change water out every couple days so it stays fresh)
