What does one do with left-over turkey? Make a sandwich, of course! Notice, the title for this sandwich has the word, ‘keto.’ Yes, I am a keto lover, most of the time.
Eating turkey makes me happy, like just about everyone, since it contains tryptophan, an amino acid which converts to serotonin for the brain. This natural chemical works as a neurotransmitter and a hormone to enhance one’s mood. Of course, tryptophan is also found in other meats, fish, and dairy products.

Now, as the title states, what is a perfect turkey sandwich for the keto lover? Well, first one must make the bread for it and it sure doesn’t take long to make. Here are the ingredients for making the bread for one sandwich: 3 tbsp almond flour, 1 pinch onion powder, 1 pinch sea salt, ¼ tsp baking powder, 1 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese, 1 tbsp. grated cheddar cheese, 1 tbsp. olive oil, 1 egg, and ½ tbsp. butter.

Directions: In a microwave safe dish combine everything except the butter and whisk until fully combined. Microwave for 90 seconds. Expect it to puff up in the microwave. Then heat butter in a skillet on medium high. Allow it to cool for 2 minutes, then cut in half to form two thin bread slices. Fry in a skillet until the bread is nice and toasty! Finally, let it cool a few minutes before making one’s sandwich.

After making the bread, it’s time to build the perfect sandwich. One will need 2 slices of bacon (YUM!), 60 g turkey, ¼ avocado, 1 ½ tbsp. Mayonnaise, and 1 slice of Cheddar cheese.

This wonderful recipe, I’m sorry to say, isn’t my creation. It comes from Mama Bear’s Cookbook.
I hope everyone enjoys some great food during one’s Thanksgiving holiday. My next article will not be posted until after Thanksgiving.

Author's Bio: 

I live with, ‘photophobia’, a visual processing disorder, which is easily misdiagnosed as ‘dyslexia,’ and that’s why I wrote the book, “My Curly Hair Self: Living with a Visual Processing Disorder.” Now, I do live with glaucoma, but someone not diagnosed with glaucoma, can also have photophobia (a medical condition which falls under the category of physical disability) and that’s why my book is so important for those individuals who have trouble with reading, writing, or looking at a Smartboard.
