Green eggs and ham anyone?

I wanted to share a recipe from my new book The Soccer Mom weight loss program! It's a fun and nutritious sandwich that even the fussiest of kids will eat! The added bonus is that it's fun and nutritious for Mom (and Dad) too! Loaded with protein and healthy Omega's, it will keep you going and feeling energized all through the afternoon.

Green Eggs and Ham Sandwich

1 hard-boiled egg
1/2 peeled and pitted avocado
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 slices whole-grain bread
2 ounces extra lean baked ham
salt and pepper to taste

In bowl, mash together egg with avocado until well blended to desired consistency. Stir in lemon juice. On one of the slices of bread, arrange slice of ham. Top with "green egg" mixture; cover with remaining slice of bread. With serrated knife, slice into quarters and serve.

Makes 1 sandwich
