Healthier Recipe

What I ate on Day 2 for lunch:
Food item
Food Group
Tuna sandwich

1 slice plain white bread
1 slice whole meal bread
2 slices tomato
2 leaves lettuce
1 sandwich, 2 slices of bread
Carbohydrates, Proteins, Vegetables, Fat (butter, mayonnaise)
Margarine was used instead of fresh butter (too expensive) which is higher in saturated fat.

Healthier Recipe – Tuna Mayo Sandwich
Unhealthy stuff in the sandwich:
·         Margarine – high in saturated fat
·         Mayonnaise – high in fat
Mayonnaise (kinda gross, isn’t it?)


Replacements/ additions:
·         Wholemeal bread instead of white – complex carbohydrates have a lower GI
·         No mayonnaise, or low fat mayonnaise
·         Use tuna chunks in olive oil, light for a healthier option – olive oil has good fats
·         Low-fat spread or butter instead of margarine, which gives less saturated fat.
·         More vegetables! Add in some thinly-sliced cucumber too J

And the final product:
Oh, I’m getting hungry already! :D
