Sun-Dried Tomato And Avocado Grilled Cheese

Sun-Dried Tomato And Avocado Grilled Cheese

One of my all-time favorite comfort foods is grilled cheese — usually with bacon on it, to be honest. However, ever since I did my sugar detox, I've been experimenting with a ton of new recipes and combos, and this kind of came out of some leftover ingredients in the fridge. 

Like Oprah, I am obsessed with bread. It is the one thing I refuse to "give up" because life is about balance and enjoying yourself, right? Good news is, you don't have to demonize carbs and avoid them for the sake of eating healthy! This amazing lunch is packed with healthy fats and it tastes SO EFFING GOOD.
