#4 Diet Style, with avocado and bacon

Today I’d like to tell you about another favorite sandwich of mine from Lenny’s. You may remember them from the time I wrote about the #10TC, or when I wrote about the time I took pictures of my Cape Cod potato chips. Well here you go, one more sandwich for your list.

The #4 Diet Style with avocado and bacon.
The second time I went to Lenny’s I found my favorite sandwich. I was feeling diety at the moment and it was a hot summer day, so I ordered the sandwich with the most amount of cool and refreshing veggies possible.

But I was hungry. And since I’ve counted calories from time to time, I know how very few calories are actually present in a pile of veggies. So I added a little avocado to the order. I reasoned, that avocado is a healthy fat and is full of flavor, thus the perfect addition. And the bacon? Why for the texture and flavor of course.


Sandwich description: Alpine swiss and alpine cheddar cheese with romaine lettuce, tomato, onion, carrot, cucumber, shredded red cabbage and alfalfa sprout on 7-grain whole wheat.

I usually pick up a packet of salt and pepper and sprinkle it on as I eat, the bacon is salty, but sometimes you need just a little extra to enhance the fabulous sensation happening in your mouth. The sandwich is cool and crisp, and oh so good. It leaves you feeling healthy and energetic, quite opposite from the feeling you get after eating wonderful mashed potatoes and fried chicken. (Oh yes, I’ll post about those later.)

I like this sandwich so well, that I order it three out of every four times I go to Lenny’s. It’s that good.

So there you have it, the #4 Diet Style with avocado and bacon. It comes highly recommended, with two thumbs up.

What’s that?

You want to know what I got the first time I went to Lenny’s?

Why a BLT on toasted white bread with mayo. Because let’s face it, if you’re going to have a BLT, a little white bread isn’t going to hurt you, and the mayo? Why, that’s one of the best parts. The next time I happen to order this beauty, I’ll snap a photo and post it for all of you to oogle.



  1. I ogled this sandwich in your flicker gallery a while back, and now the drool is flowing again. Our first (and last trip) to Lenny's was while we were apartment hunting. The agent called as we were about to place the order, so we had to leave hungry. The agent was a louse. We didn't take the apartment and we never returned to Lenny's. And is fair to poor Lenny? No, of course not...

  2. Oohh that looks yummy, except if those are carrots. I'd have to pull those out.

  3. I don't know what it is, but everytime I get done with a workout and then checked your blog, there is another pic of a delicious food item staring me in the face! AAAAUGH!! That's okay, though. I still enjoyed my linguine pescatore.

  4. Columbia: Oh poor Lenny's. I wonder if they'll ever get over being punished because of the lousy agent. Or was that lousey? Perhaps you need to start carrying some bug spray around with you.

    Patrick: You don't like Carrots?!? I don't know if we can be friends anymore...well, maybe we can since I think you're funny.

    Uncadan8: Well that's what I'm here for. Blogging about food to make you salivate over, knowing full well that you're a couple hundred miles away and have no opportunity to quench said salivating.

    On a side note, linguine, Mmmmmmm, hope your ride was nice.
