These Honey Avocado Turkey Bacon Sandwiches are my daily lunch lately, so for anyone needing healthy lunch ideas, this is it! And the best part? It’s really good!
We’ve talked about this a few times, lunchtime is the worst. THE WORST. Everything takes too long to make unless it’s not good for you and you’re just trying to take care of yourself and live your life to the fullest so how is it that a meal can be such a hassle? I love this delicious Pot Roast Sandwich, but food should never make you feel bad, it should be the opposite and I’m pretty darn sure these Honey Avocado Turkey Bacon Sandwiches are going to change your life.
So let’s talk about this for a minute.
What are you currently eating for lunch these days?
Right now I’m usually a green smoothie protein shake, oatmeal with fruit, turkey with apples and cheese, or leftovers. Yes, leftovers, someone’s got to eat them and at least I don’t have to think. Anything else feels like a hassle or it’s not very good for me and after my battle with Hyperemesis I have such a conviction for healthy eating and trying to take care of our bodies because no matter how much we want to believe otherwise, they aren’t going to last forever.
Less than 100 Calories
A few weeks ago I found these Flatout Flatbreads and couldn’t wait to give them a try seeing as how they are only 90 calories!
I’ve tried using wraps before but they were a bit like cardboard and way, way too big which means you end up taking in far more calories and carbs than you had planned because heaven knows we have to fill things to the top, huh.
These are so different and work great for a honey avocado turkey bacon sandwich as they have a unique shape that allows them to easily be folded without breaking at all. And at only 90 calories you can eat the whole thing and still feel light and good. Best of all, this is the kind of meal prep recipe for lunch that you need.
Honey Avocado Dressing
My friend Jeana taught me how to make this honey avocado dressing for sandwiches and it’s pretty wonderful, along with much healthier than a slather of other condiments you could use.
It’s a simple recipe, avocado, lemon juice, garlic, honey and while we use vegenaise, mostly because of it’s flavor but it is a healthier option, you could use mayonnaise for sure. We blend it all in a blender until smooth and that’s it!
How Long will Homemade Dressing Last in the Fridge?
Avocado dressing or any homemade dressing will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, but you will need to give it a little store every few days.
Honey Avocado Turkey Bacon Sandwich
Our Honey Avocado Turkey Bacon Sandwich is exactly what busy moms need for protein, veggies and a quick and easy meal prep. I know exactly how you all feel trying to get everything done in the day and still feel like you have an identity and a moment to yourself. Lunch almost makes a mom feel worse about herself because in the busyness of the day it turns into a finish off whatever your toddler left on the table and hurrying off to change diapers instead of taking care of yourself.
Are Avocados Good For You?
Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate.
They are also high in potassium and contain omega-3 fatty acids.
Meal Prep for Lunch
It doesn’t have to be that way. Make the dressing at the beginning of the week along with a couple of pieces of bacon or turkey bacon. Slice up your favorite veggies and then lunch becomes merely a quick assembly which you deserve. You’ll be a better mom if you take the 2 minutes to make this honey avocado turkey bacon sandwich because you’ll have a full belly (good riddance HANGRY attitudes) and healthy fat along with protein and better for you grains like this 5 grain flax Flatout give you the energy your body needs to help your kids get homework done and to not get stressed and impatient.

The Best Lemon Dill Cucumber Sandwiches
The best lemon dill cucumber sandwiches I’ve ever had added a touch of Greek yogurt to the spread. Try this awesome tea sandwich recipe at your next party!
We tweaked the dressing a little bit. It was really runny due to the lemon juice (maybe i just had a big lemon) so added a little extra
Mayonnaise (didn’t have or use veganaise) to give it more body. Also we used Mike’s Hot Honey to give it some “kick”. Great Sandwich kudos to you! I saved some of the runnier version before i added more mayo and we are going to try it out as salad dressing tomorrow because it is delicious!
Yum! That’s a great idea! Thank you so much for the feedback! I’m so glad you enjoyed it and made it your own!
Those sound great….except I have to use gluten free bread (which, is equal to cardboard, in some cases). If I ever find a decent gluten free bread, I am definitely going to make these! Thank you! I have a hard time thinking of what to make for lunch sometimes.
Haha, we totally agree! So many are not very good. We have a friend who can’t have bread and just does turkey roll ups with all the same ingredients.
