Crohn’s Disease & Ulcerative Colitis
Avocados are both a fruit and a fat, and contain a variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to help keep your body working it’s best.
Mozzarella cheese provides the body with calcium, an important mineral for those with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
Chicken is a lean source of protein and may provide your body with the building blocks it needs to build healthy cells.
Red pepper provides folate, a nutrient that may help to grow new and healthy cells.
Prepare Pesto Spread In a mixing bowl, mash together half of the avocado, the Old World Italian Pesto, salt, and lemon juice.
Prepare Sandwich Gather 2 slices of the baguette and scoop 2 Tbsp of the above mixture onto one of the bread slices. Smear evenly. On the other half of bread without mixture, layer 1 slice of mozzarella cheese (or 2 Tbsp shredded cheese), ¼ cup of chicken, and 3-4 slices of the roasted red pepper.
Grill Sandwich Place the pesto covered slice on the cheese covered slice, and using a panini press, press the sandwich until crust is golden brown in color, and cheese is melted.
Serve & Enjoy Once the sandwich is melted throughout, carefully remove from the panini press, cut in half, and enjoy! Note: This sandwich can be enjoyed by warming in the oven using the “Broiler” setting, a microwave oven, or it can be enjoyed cold.
