FATTY VEGGIE SANDWICH
Toasted potato bread slices spread with veggie mayo on one, creamy peanut butter on the other. Top with dill relish and mustard. Add the veggies: crisp iceberg lettuce, ripe tomato and sweet onion, with a fresh pepper grind finish. A good morning afternoon evening delight!

Notes: Sure it’s a lot of fat for one sandwich, but it contains a lot of raw veggies too – not calorie-wise, but volume-wise. Although there’s no science on how raw foods can offset a higher fat content, I’m going with my instinct that says it’s an intelligent balance.
Steve would have added margarine to the mix. Sure it tastes that much better, but there’s a point where health should trump taste, when the taste is already way up there. Once in a while? Sure, but not every time you have a sandwich do you need margarine if you already have a fat source, such as peanut butter or veg mayonnaise.
I went over the imaginary fat line with two fat sources, but there’s no meat (plant or animal) on the sandwich.
Try it. It’s a great, easy to make, sandwich. I’ll bet black bread would taste great here too, but try the potato bread if stores in your locale sell it.
