Low Fat Lunch Recipe #6

Doubledecker Rainbow Sandwich

Petite Rainbow Sandwich

How can a double-decker delicious sandwich be a low fat lunch recipe? Easy! Just choose the right ingredients!

This double-decker rainbow sandwich has the right ingredients for a delicious "guilt-free" lunch.

If you are used to the normal boring ham and egg sandwich, this one will broaden your food horizons.

Often people only choose ingredients they're familiar with. Call it "habit", or simply not being willing to experiment with other ingredients... you couldn't be bothered... whatever!

The point is... there are lots of delicious ingredients you can try combining for a different and tasty (out of the ordinary) low fat lunch recipe.

This sandwich combines simple (and yet, healthy and tasty) ingredients such as wholemeal bread (high in dietary fibre), avocado (which contains good cholesterol), low fat ricotta (which provides moderate amounts of calcium), and pineapple (good for taste and, if fresh, high in vitamin C).

All of the ingredients have been measured to minimise the amount of fat and kilo joules, and make it a tasty meal.


4 slices wholemeal bread
