Easy Gluten-Free Veggie Sandwich

I know you’re all looking for healthy gluten-free lunch ideas, aren’t you?

It’s Back-to-School season and everyone from the 5 year old down the street to my corporate America neighbor wants a little yumminess for lunch tomorrow.

I just know it!

Well, before we dig into this sandwich, I’m going off on a little side note.

Just a tiny one.


I’ve been thinking a lot about goal setting lately and it seems that everyone I know who sets a goal- is attached to the outcome.

And I just think it’s interesting because it’s one thing to set a goal for yourself but it’s another to place your sense of value in how much you achieve.

Instead, I think doing the best we can at something … and then letting it go …. is the best way to look at goals.

I think it’s more about having faith and trust in ourselves rather than focusing on the perfect outcome.

Anyway, back to my sammie!

This gluten-free veggie sandwich is delish. It’s super simple to make and tastes amazing. Fresh. whole ingredients that will put a big smile on your face.

So, set a goal with yourself to create healthy lunches everyday this month – but don’t beat yourself up if you slip or if you choose an unhealthy option. Just get back on track the next day and think about why you chose those not-so healthy options the day before so that next time around… you’ll be armed and ready with one of these sammie’s in your bag to dig into and enjoy.

Have faith.

Believe me.

Everyone seems to have their own favorite sandwich and this one is surely mine.

It’s a life changer.

Or a lunch changer, hehehe.

And just simply the best.

O yea.

Hungry yet? I thought so. Get yourself ready for the best lunch date in years.

    Hi Amie,

    Thanks for letting me know about the bread. I don’t know if it is available in stores in NYC so perhaps I will have to get it on the web.

    I love spreading hummus or pesto on my veggie sandwiches but I never thought to do both at once. Your picture looks so yummy I want to just bite my monitor.

    I hope I am commenting on the correct post for the cookbook giveaway – if not woops 🙂 This sandwich looks so tasty. And I agree Canyon Bakehouse is by far my favorite as well…the texture is so good you don’t even have to toast it!

    Hi, Your book sounds quite interesting. As a Realtor I like to surprise my clients with some home made goodies sometimes. It’s difficult to come up with some really nice recipes for my clients who have food allergies. Thanks!

    I would like to win the cookbook and I agree on the goal setting you don’t have to be perfect and if you slip up let it go and don’t dwell on it and start over

    Udi’s bread has always been my favorite bread butCanyonhouse is good too.

    I like Glutino’s bread but I don’t have a toaster and not firing up the oven in the heat here in LA! Looks great though, untoasted too!

    Thanks for the chances to win great stuff! Would so love the baking cook book. This was probably the most difficult area for my daughter as she found out she was gluten intolerant as she was making her way baking every cupcake in the Martha Stewart cupcake cookbook. She still makes them, she just adjusts accordingly.
