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.
