Here's my new favourite sandwich; does anyone have any other suggestions...?

Fresh white italian bread
Avocado (mushed with lemon juice and spread thinly)
Cos lettuce
Light cheddar cheese (not too much)
Grape tomato
Fresh basil leaves ripped and sprinkled.

It's the basil that make this but its a wonderful change and very refreshing.

All the best

Cheddar? REAL cheddar? Not soy?

Personally, I couldn't tolerate the lettuce or the cheese.

For me it's real cheddar; I seem to tolerate it pretty well so long as I keep it to a minimum. I haven't tried the soy stuff, couldn't bring myself to try after trying soy milk but I might give it a shot if I can find some.

Best regards

I'm with you Tim! I am not a fan of anything soy. Or the rice cheese for that matter.

I bought some when I was first diagnosed and just thinking about the taste of it makes me gag.

Last summer I made a pasta salad with cubed Light Cheddar Cheese and I seemed to fair pretty well too. However, I don't eat it often.

As for your sandwich suggestion, I have yet to try an avacado so I can't say one way or the other if I would like it.

What do they taste like anyway?

Hi Lana-Marie,

Not sure how best to describe an avocado, I guess they're kind of nutty (but only slightly). I only got into them last year...I used to hate them because I had only ever had them sliced and didn't like the texture; but if you mush them up they are wonderful.

Give it a try some time, I'm sure you won't regret it!
Regards

I can't stand them -- but as I recall they're really high in fat. Somebody down there in Southern California where they're grown -- help me out here.

They are high in soluble fiber and really nutritious. They're high in fat - for a fruit! - which means they're actually pretty low fat overall, just that most of the calories are from fat. One avocado gets about 100-150 calories from fat, so if you add half an avocado to a sandwich you're just fine. Or mash up into guacamole for baked corn chips - delish!

The fats are monounsaturated and super healthy for your heart. These are the kinds of fats you need in your diet, so add in wherever you can (in small amounts). Avocados are perfect for this.

You are ABSOLUTELY right about the fat. Good fat or not it is still high fat. As much as I LOVE, and I mean really LOVE avacados I can never eat them again, EVER.
You see, it was eating an avacado that gave me the gall bladder attack that then called for surgery. I didn't eat avacados for 9 years...then started back............heaven as far as I was concerned...........but wait............here is the kicker.............it wasn't long after starting to eat them again did this IBS come a calling....so you see the association I have....

You will be happy to know this little bit of trivia Bev....the word avacado is derived from an (old) Spanish word meaning testicles. When they were first discovered they thought they looked like them....remember, the native grown ones were much smaller than the ones grown today, and size wise and shape wise that was pretty accurate an analogy to the male human anatomy.....

Now, whatdaya think of that?
