Loaded sandwich

"Sandwiches are often underrated, and can be a nutritious, and quick meal to take on the run or enjoy at home. This recipe is loaded with wholegrains and vegetables which means plenty of fibre to help keep you full as well as keeping your gut and bowels healthy. Not only loaded with veges, but avocado, cheese, and your choice of protein gives you plenty of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C (tomato), Calcium (cheese), and B vitamins (bread) to keep your body working at its best!" Tara Diversi APD DVA's Dietetics Adviser
