Lunch on September 18

Standard

Lunch today is a go to for me… Even before I became vegan, well, then I use traditional mayonnaise. This is a heirloom tomato sandwich with grape-seed veganaise on whole grain bread. On the side is sliced cucumbers sprinkled with cayenne and garlic salt.

Super tasty and ridiculously easy to make. Small side note: for those who count calories, this entire meal is only 420.
