I love a sandwich just like the next person but I love it even more when I am eating one that is actually good for me and doesn’t make me feel like taking a nap later. The combination of beans, greens and artichokes makes this a well balanced meal that is quick and easy. You can have a deliciously healthy and satisfying meal in under 10 minutes. It doesn’t get much better than that!


  • 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup mashed white beans
  • 2 slices whole grain or gluten free bread, toasted
  • 3 to 4 store-bought marinated artichoke hearts, halved



  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add spinach and stir until wilted, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Spread mashed beans on one of slice toast. Top with artichoke hearts and sauteed spinach. Top with second slice.


Until next time,

Have a fit and fabulous day!
