Light Spring Lunch with Avocado!

Along with my wishful thinking that spring weather would actually come back and the rain would stop, I decided to eat something light/springy today for lunch.  I can't lie, I was a little apprehensive about the bread being too heavy, but it was so delicious the way all of the flavors mixed together.  This was actually the second day that I had this for lunch and I thought it was a great mix.  Yesterday I had it with a hard broiled egg on it but I have no more of them, must get hard boiling!  

I want to say that I HAVE spoken about my undying love for avocados here before.  I think I posted another sandwich very similar to this one (but with an english muffin) last year.  As you can see, I have decided to go with 7-Grain bread, avocado, American cheese and tomato.  What you can't see is the light (very light) layer of some honey dijon.  

All of these flavors just mix so well together.  Yesterday when I had the egg on the sandwich as well, I tasted a tweet bit and there was no honey dijon so I think the bread has a slight sweetness.  

Who doesn't love a nice bowl of fruit with their sandwich?  Not only was this delicious, but it's a healthy alternative.  Having something crisp and delicious is also something that reminds me of the spring.  I'm over the apple pie, bring on the watermelon!  For now until watermelon starts appearing in stores around me, I have opted for a pear and some strawberries.  Strawberries always remind me of the start of spring and into summer so inherently it just makes me happier!

What do you guys normally snack on/have for lunch in the spring?  Do you change up your eating habits drastically to calm your mood?  I mean, isn't that the point of 'comfort food?'  I love being able to make whatever I want, whenever I want it so this is really good to me.  April showers will hopefully be bringing May flowers and some warmer weather and this meal has certainly made me believe it a little bit more.  Send me a tweet and let me know what you're thinking!  Thanks for reading.  -Brit.
