Slimmer Sarmies

Whether you’ve popped into your local deli for a take-away lunch or you’ve made your own sandwich, make sure you choose the healthy option

 

 

KEEP IT LEAN

Roast beef, ham, turkey and chicken breast have half (or less) the kilojoules and fat of salami and pastrami. And hard cheeses such as Swiss, Cheddar and provolone are also kilojoule culprits.

 

VEG OUT

Fresh produce such as rocket, spinach, tomatoes and cucumbers; roasted ones such as onions, peppers and brinjals; and pickles and sauerkraut are all low-kilojoule options.

 

SAY NO TO PESTO AND MAYO…

…unless it’s the low-fat version. Better still are mustard and salsa.

 

BE BREAD-WISE

Whole-wheat, rye and wholegrain bread are much better for you than white or plain brown.
