Productive morning ending shortly with an early lunch! What did I do differently today that caused me to get so hungry so early? I forgot the nut (seed) butter!! I swear that tablespoon makes such a difference in satiety! I could have gone another 45 minutes or so, but I have errands to run this afternoon and wanted to get lunch over with so I could get out of the house!
I made a fantastic open-faced sandwich on a thick slice of Dakota bread –
Topped with a layer of Whole Foods Lemon Hummus, 3 slices of sharp white cheddar and sliced avocado.
So thick I had to eat it with a knife and fork – which was actually quite nice!
Los chips (pronounced “los cheeeeps”) on the side!

Sandwich looks delish! 🙂 will have to try that combo sometime!
Jordan @ Bake Write Sleep says
I LOVE that lemon hummus. I could eat it with a spoon. In fact, I have to try hard not to.
Caroline @ After Dinner Dance says
I love making paninis with cheddar, hummus and avocado – so good!
Krissy @ Shiawase Life says
LOL are you GOING to Earlysville? Right nearby, haha.
Haha nope – just borrowing its namesake 🙂
Claire @ Live and Love to Eat says
Avocado + hummus + cheese sounds perfect right now – even better toasted! 🙂
Wow that’s cheese, hummus and avo isn’t a combo I would have up with but I’m intrigued!
Antonia @ healthinspirations says
I agree, adding just a spoon of nut butter can make a huge difference in satiety. Love the look of your sandwich!

I definitely always notice when I forgo the nut butter in breakfast. 11:30 rumbling tummy is the sign to let me know! 🙂

Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat says
I need to get some of this lemon hummus you speak of!! Or make some, I suppose. Lunch was early for me too today. I think it was because I had a really hard workout this morning so I’m extra hungry!
mary @ minutespermile says
wow, I haven’t heard “peace out” in quite some time. that made me smile.
Katie @ Peace Love & Oats says
your lunch looks sooo good! Haha it’s making me wish I could have that rather than what I brought to work! I haven’t had chips in ages, needs to be remedied!
I’ve been eating so much avocado! Looks good 🙂

Sarah @ Learning to Feed Yourself says
I didn’t eat any peanut butter for breakfast either and noticed I was hungry by ten!! Never forgetting that again!

Emily @Emily's Olives says
I forgot about the wonders of an open faced sandwich! That is definitely on the lunch plan for this weekend!
That look delicious! It looks like a great idea to include lemon hummus on the bread. I bet that makes the sandwich even better.
Ashley @ Coffee, Cake and Cardio says
Those chips look awesome!
Diana Hutchins says
Looks like a good quick lunch! I love avocados.
That looks delicious Kath!! I am going to try and do something with some avocados tomorrow! I have some fresh tomatoes from my garden that I really want to mix with something and I may make guacamole! 🙂 This is my first year having a garden and things definitely taste better fresh off of the vine!
The chips look interesting. Are they at Whole Foods?
