how to build a healthy sandwich

how to build a healthy sandwich

With a nod to the good old BLT - here's a healthier version to suit meat-eaters, vegetarians and vegans alike.

Try this one:

  • Two pieces of good bread - try spelt, sourdough or rye.

  • Spread the bottom with mashed avocado, a pinch of salt and ground black pepper.

  • Add your favorite filling; maybe mozzarella, cottage cheese, hummus, a slice of meat - beef, parma ham, chicken breast - buy the best quality you can and try to get a minimum of free range.

  • Pile on a handful of leaves - spinach, lettuce, mixed greens, rocket whatever you like or have - just make sure you include plenty - more salad than meat or cheese!

  • A few slices of ripe tomato, and perhaps some chopped fresh herbs like basil, parsley or coriander.

  • Spread the second piece of bread with more avocado, dijon mustard, natural (full-fat) yoghurt or a layer of mayo.

  • Put the lid on and enjoy!
