DSC_0587 (2)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! That’s why today, I’m sharing this super delicious veggie sandwich with you.


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 sammies 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.

  1. Ooh I LOVE a good veggie sammie and this one looks delish! BTW, I love the way you present your food. So pretty and earthy. Anyway, this makes me think a trip to Whole Foods might be in my immediate future.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Just found your site. Please enter me in the giveaway. I am always looking for new skin are products!

  5. Thanks for the info on the Gluten-Free bread. Will give it a try. Also, thanks for offering the Odacite skin care giveaway. I’ve been looking for a natural skincare line for awhile.

  6. 4 stars
    Love your photography and sandwitch ideas. The skin care kit would be just what I need to get into a routine with my facial cleaning.

  7. Can’t wait to try this bread, always looking to discover yummy gf breads.
    Please enter me in your giveaway for Ricki Heller’s cookbook, “Naturally Sweet & Gluten-Free”. It’s baking season ya’ know ;~) Thank you!

  8. 5 stars
    I hope I am commenting on the correct post for the cookbook giveaway – if not woops πŸ™‚ 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!

  9. 4 stars
    thanks for this recipe – I’m gluten free & dairy free too and this is a great sandwich idea. I hope I win the Naturally Sweet & Gluten-Free cookbook!

  10. Would love to win the Naturally Sweet & Gluten Free cookbook! I love to bake and since I am allergic to eggs and gluten and choose to live refined sugar free it would be

  11. I would love to win NS & GF cookbook! I’m just starting the journey of going dairy free in addition to GF and it would definitely come in handy!

  12. The cookbook looks great and the sandwich looks even better! Hope you have a cookbook out soon! Thank you for the sandwich recipe…can’t wait to try it!!

  13. 5 stars
    This sandwich looks great, and I would love to know where you guys are able to find Canyon Bakehouse bread? Sounds awesome. Please enter me in the giveaway for the cookbook too! I’m gluten, rice, and dairy sensitive which leaves on always on the look out for things I can eat!

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. Like my sister (see above post) I also have allergies to gluten, eggs, and dairy and choose to not consume refined sugars, the β€œNaturally Sweet & Gluten-Free” cookbook would be perfect. And, I’ll even share it with my sister! Thanks, Amie.

    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!

  18. I love vegetables and I love sandwiches! Gotta try this, thanks for posting it. I want to win the cookbook giveaway. I need it.

  19. 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.
