The other day I was browsing around this fancy internet thing and came across a post for an amazing looking sandwich.
Anyways…this sandwich seemed like the most perfect thing to make this weekend so I picked up a gorgeous pink and white peach, some fresh provolone and GF bread and headed to the kitchen to create some magic…and magic my friends, happened!
Do you see how gorgeous these peaches are?!?!?!?!
So full disclosure: Before this I had never had a peach before…. seriously.
Yes, they are beautiful and look refreshing but I just had never ventured down that path.*shameface*
So I started doing some researching and it turns out that peaches are an amazing source of vitamins including A, C, E, and K. They are also high in copper, calcium, magnesium, zinc and manganese and phosphorus. Peaches are also high in fiber and have anti-inflammatory properties…i’m sold!
I used to make sandwiches very similar but using apple and cinnamon. These were one of the first ‘healthier’ options that I would make for myself.
Step One… slice the peaches and begin to stack the sandwich. I started with bread (spread with either butter or coconut oil on the bottom side) then provolone then peaches*…
Step Two… add the sweetness in the form of pure organic maple syrup…
Step Three… add cinnamon…
Step Four… toast! I used my good ole’ griddler. This may have been one of my first kitchen toys and I still love it! You could also use a frying pan or maybe even a toaster oven?!
The original recipe called for cayenne but I love the taste of cinnamon and maple syrup together.
*You can change up the insides as well… pears, apples, nectarines, mango… you could add walnuts, sunflower seeds, hemp hearts.
Play around with the combinations and see what kind of magic you can create.
Q: What is the first ‘healthful’ item that you used to make? Do you still make it? How have you tweaked it over the years?
