BLT 2.0

This healthy twist on a classic BLT is actually much more filling and satisfying than the original. Using a hearty multi-grain bread, thick-cut turkey bacon, heirloom tomatoes, and plenty of spinach gives the sandwich substance, while a thin layer of zesty guacamole adds a lot of flavor.

• 8 slices hearty, multi-grain bread
• 8 slices thick-cut turkey bacon
