Here’s a light, but very filling recipe for a sandwich for lunch. I eat it with some cut vegetables and it keeps me pretty full until my 3 p.m. snack. Enjoy!

 

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 of a Ciabatta Roll
  • 2 tbsp hummus
  • 2 strips cooked bacon
  • A couple of strips of red pepper

Variation: Boomtown Coffee in Houston makes a variation of this sandwich that includes tomato and avocado, but doesn’t include the bacon. Hypoglycemics need the additional protein, which is why I included the bacon. 

 

According to Spark Recipe’s Recipe Calculator, the nutritional information for the way I make the sandwich is below. It shows the carbohydrate (between 40 and 60 g) and protein (between 7 and 15 g) combination that hypoglycemics need to stay even in blood sugar.
