Keep calorie intake low by making a salad sandwich

If you are watching your weight or are trying to keep your calorie count down, consider making yourself a healthy salad sandwich instead of a fatty, high calorie one.

All you need are some fresh salad ingredients and some cottage cheese or other low-fat cheese that can be easily spread. After spreading a reasonable amount of cheese onto a slice of bread, layer on the salad ingredients. Cucumber ribbons and finely chopped red peppers make a delicious topping. Be creative and come up with your own unique topping!

Increase your fibre intake

Increase your fibre intake by opting to use a seeded bread or whole-wheat option. Apart from offering some amazing health benefits, fibre also supports weight loss as it helps to keep you full for longer.

Consult a professional

Always consult a dietician if you require assistance in putting a meal plan together. In addition, you should always check with your doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet, especially if you are under medication or suffer from any medical condition that has an effect on your diet.
