So you lingered at last night's party long after your better judgment packed up and left? No worries. Try a carb-based breakfast, like this sandwich made with whole grain bread, almond butter (high in magnesium, which your body will crave), bacon, and apple slices.
This recipe is one of O
's delicious start-your-day-right breakfasts
Servings: Serves 1
- 3 pieces thinly sliced whole grain bread
- 2 Tbsp. natural almond butter
- 1 tart apple , cut into thin strips
- 4 slices bacon , cooked until crisp
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- Pinch of coarse sea salt
Total time: 10 minutes
Note: You can also serve this as a regular sandwich with just two pieces of bread. Try replacing the apple with banana if you're feeling queasy; bananas have a natural antacid effect.
Toast bread; spread 1 tablespoon almond butter on each of 2 slices. Lay apple over almond butter. Top each piece with 2 slices crisp bacon. Drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt if desired.
Assemble sandwich by stacking toast, with a plain slice in the middle, to form a classic double-layer club.
