I have been starving for the past few days. Insatiable hunger that has me waking up hungry, that makes my stomach growl for lunch by 10:30, that leaves me feeling ready for an afternoon snack just an hour after lunch and that requires a substantial dinner. This crazy hunger is nothing new…I experience it for a few days every month. I think it’s hormonal. If I actually kept track of these kinds of things, I’m sure I’d see a pattern. (Who has the time?)
So during these few days, I have to get creative with strategies to feed the hunger monster things that will keep it at bay. Today’s lunch was so delicious that I immediately had to share it with you.
When I opened the fridge an avocado spoke to me. High in monosaturated (good) fat, I knew it would offer some staying power. And then I saw the eggs and cheese…the rest was history.
I toasted a slice of Great Harvest Dakota Bread and then topped it with about one-third of a mashed avocado, spinach, an egg over medium and a slice of provolone. After a quick trip under the broiler, it came out ooey, gooey and perfect.
And of course the oatmeal chocolate chip cookie (I baked them last night) on the side was totally necessary.
What’s the best lunch you’ve had recently? And how do you beat the hunger monster?
