These two goat cheese sandwiches, plus a mayonnaise substitute, make a healthy, tasty lunch. Want to try something new?  Given my new knowledge of the Blood Type diet, I’ve been trying new recipes – and creating some healthy lunch recipes like these two.

According to the recommendations for Blood Type O, goat cheese is beneficial, cow cheeses are not, hence these goat cheese sandwiches. The first also relies on my new mayonnaise substitute (mayo is not great for Os, olive oil is).

Goat Cheese/Red Pepper Sandwich

goatsnewIngredients: a bread dip mix * or create your own with your choice of herbs; olive oil; bread of your choice; roasted red peppers; romaine lettuce; and goat cheese.

* this herb mixture contained onion, garlic, Mexican oregano, cumin, lemon peel, salt and black pepper

To make: Add your favorite herbed bread dip to a tablespoon of olive oil (you can make this in a larger batch and let sit so the flavors blend, it’s better that way)

Lightly toast your bread (I now only use sprouted breads such as Ezekiel).  According to one study, toasting releases more of the nutrient in breads. But another study claims toasting, especially dark toasting, releases Acrylamide, you may want to click on this link for more on that.)

Brush your toast with the herbed olive oil

Spread goat cheese on the oiled bread

Add roasted red pepper, add romaine lettuce – close the sandwich. Yum.

Goat Cheese, Fig, and Seed Sandwichgoatcheese

Ingredients: bread of your choice, goat cheese, fig spread, roasted pumpkin seeds

Again, lightly toast your bread, spread one side with goat cheese, the other with fig spread, sprinkle the roasted pumpkin seeds on the fig spread (they stick better that way), put the sandwich together – and enjoy!
