Prolonged stress can be detrimental to your bodies immunity. It's one of the reasons that I strongly believe in taking breaks, or at the very least, finding an activity to reduce stress. With wedding, job, and moving stresses all taking a hit on me, I need every type of assist I can have.
Garlic sandwiches have become a part of my life since meeting my wife. Her family makes garlic sandwiches almost every major holiday as a way for granting a "healthy future". Their recipe is the extremely simple but effective combination of garlic, butter and celery.
The very first time I tried it, I thought her family was nuts. Straight garlic in a sandwich doesn't seem appetizing, and i admit that when I ate it, I didn't really enjoy the raw flavour. As time went on though, I started to miss the power and health of the sandwich. On occasions when their weren't garlic sandiwches present at family gatherings, I actually became disappointed. It has become as needed as chicken soup or hot tea when you start feeling under the weather.
This is my own particular version though. As I enjoy the original, I wanted to make a garlic sandwich that was distinctly my own. This is the one that want to share with the rest of you. May it bring you health and wellness as well!
Buns - 2 (due to the immense stress, we went with the large baguette's)
Garlic - 1 head, finely diced
Celery - 2 stalks, finely diced
Avocado - 1 large
Spinach - 1 handful, washed and dried
Salt and Pepper
The assembly of the sandwich is very simple. Start with slicing the bread open. Spread the butter on the bread. Sprinkle on generous amounts of the garlic and press it lightly into the bread. Add the celery. Slice on the avocado slices and add the spinach leaves. Season with salt and pepper and serve!
