Kermit Sandwiches anyone?

Tina's Kermit SandwichesIn speaking with some of you, I’ve mentioned these Kermit Sandwiches, as they are, by far, my favorite  food! They are simple and healthy – easy to make

Sprouted Hemp Bread (French Meadow Bakery) – my favorite bread
Good, unfiltered oil, like Olive, Hemp, Flax, Coconut
Ripe Avocado
Scallions, Onions, Red Onions or RAW Minced Garlic!
Ripe Tomatoes
Tina’s Everything Mix (see next post) and/or Fresh Cilantro, if available
Sprouts (Alfalfa, Clover, Broccoli, Onion, etc)
AND/OR Romaine Lettuce Leaves
Himalayan Crystal Salt (see below)

I start by toasting the bread to add some nice crunch, drizzle on oil (we need a couple of tablespoons a day, so here’s a good way to get some), scoop out the avocado and mash onto the bread and sprinkle on the salt. If you’re using “Everything Mix” or chopped Cilantro add it now, spread minced onions or garlic, top with thick slices of tomatoes, sprinkle with more salt. Last, add either the sprouts or romaine lettuce leaves (or both!) as the top of the “sandwich”. Sometimes I encase the whole sandwich in large Romaine Lettuce leaves, like a pocket – makes it a bit easier to eat. Don’t be fooled by substitutes – the toasted Hemp Bread MAKES this sandwich!! And, I don’t like pepper, but sprinkle it on if you do! These Kermit Sandwiches (named because they’re so green) go great with cut-up cucumbers, red bell-peppers, celery, snap peas and carrots, all sprinkled with Himalayan Crystal Salt and a glass of Yerba Mate tea with vanilla and stevia!

URparamount's Himalayan Crystal SaltHimalayan Crystal Salt from 5,000 feet under the surface of the earth is quite different than surface sea salts or other mined salts. Very briefly, it is a true crystal and possesses the same frequency as our body. PLUS, it contains the same 84 minerals that we have in almost the exact proportions we need/have.  PLUS it’s in the ionic state so our body can utilize these minerals.  It is believed that the Himalayan Crystal Salt is THE primordial sea that we came out of, hence the nearly perfect mineral match! This salt is the dehydrated sea, possessing the sun’s power in its crystals. Table salt, like all processed foods, is an aberration from the natural salts and is to be avoided.

We need salt to function – remember, our blood, sweat, tears and lymph is salty!! We need salt to make hydrochloric acid in our stomachs for digestion! It seems we optimally need about 1/4 teaspoon per quart of water per day. We are an electrical being, running on salt and water. Do some homework on all this, and for a good read, get Salt: A World History, by Mark Kurlansky. Fascinating how the world’s history, from earliest times, can be linked to the pursuit and use of salt!
