As some of you know for the last year and a half I have been changing the way I eat. I have been trying to get away from eating as many grains and legumes, sugars, dairy products and processed foods as I can. Instead I have been focusing on eating whole foods; vegetables, nuts and seeds, wild caught fish, and naturally raised animals, like local grass fed beef, or when I am lucky wild game harvested locally here in Wyoming.
I have placed a great deal of emphasis on finding the best ingredients that I can find, organic over conventionally produced products, local whenever possible, and always the freshest and most flavorsome products I can find.
I do give myself a day a week for indulgences like beer, cheese, a great loaf of crusty bread or a desert, but the rest of the week I have given up entirely eating the vast majority of the foods in the categories I listed above. Note: If you are interested in why I have decided to make these changes in my diet check out this article.
If I tell you the truth, one of the things that I miss most on my diet is a good sandwich. I should also note that I am not usually one to search out alternatives. I lived once in a vegetarian household and was always bewildered by my veggie roommates quest for meat "substitutes"; Soy Sausage, Tofurkey, fake bacon, bean burgers, gluten based faux chicken. I wasn't and am still not a fan of any of these products, and I when I started my own eating project I made a concerted effort to change the way I eat, not try to fool myself into believing that I was still eating this or that now forbidden food item. Instead I let myself have the occasional indulgence on Saturdays, or when I eat at a friends house.
So, all that said, I did find myself searching for a good sandwich - without bread.
