Clean eating and living is a way of life and I've found that in order for you to enjoy what you are eating, it needs to be bright, flavorful and delicious.
This sandwich encompasses all those areas and isn't hard to prepare.
If you want, you can substitute any protein you desire, from blackened fish, to grilled shrimp, even sliced turkey and roast beef.
Be creative and go out on limb and try something new. You might surprise yourself.
