Avocado Banana Alfalfa Sandwich

I’m sure this may probably sound weird, but I assure you it’s actually really good. :O

If I recall correctly, I first tried alfalfa sprouts back in the summer of 2008, while I was taking summer classes, working at the equestrian center and the music library while playing piano on the side and being a research subject for some much-needed funds, being wooed by/wooing my then-boyfriend, and volunteering at two internships. I was taking physics at the time and it sucked some major butt. The only good thing that really came out of it was probably meeting Moosh, who tutored us for free and made us truffles. It was awesome, and he helped me earn my one and only B+ in PHY 7B. But I digress.

What I meant to talk about was the fact that during one of our dreaded and detested D/L’s (short for discussion/labs where we learned absolutely nothing–honestly, the only highlight was when our 7C TA disclosed to us that he hated D/L’s as much as we did and decided to have us do potlucks every other week so at least we could all suffer together with good food), a friend of mine was eating a sandwich with banana and alfalfa in it. I was mystified as to what it was, so she told me to try a bite. Gotta say, it was pretty awesome. Not really something I’d eat every day for fun on its own, but it’s high in vitamin K and low in calories, so I would find reasons to put it in stuff if I were you. :O

I’ve done this with peanut butter/banana/alfalfa, avocado/turkey/alfalfa…you can throw it into salads…etc. Pretty effing versatile. :O
