Tomato and Avocado Pita Sandwich Recipe

After I transitioned to a Plant Based diet, friends would say, “I would do it but it’s just too hard.” 

I say, “Different, but not hard. Being sick is hard.”

Whether you’ve had cancer like I did or you have other struggles like type 2 diabetes, heart disease or obesity,  not eating meat is easy and can improve medical outcomes.

Oh, and it’s delicious!” 

So today we bring you one of my favorite, easy sandwiches. My son eats this sandwich several times a week in his lunch bag, perfect for back to school or bagging lunch to work.
