Trying to stick to a diet is not always that easy, especially when your workmates want you to join them for lunch at a local pub and then opt for a healthy sandwich, when everyone else is getting burgers and fries. But a healthy sandwich is a great option if you want something healthy and filling.
It may not sound particularly appealing to go out for a pub lunch with your workmates and then opt for a healthy sandwich, but it really is a great option if you want something healthy and filling.
You may associate pubs with hearty food like pie and mash or fish and chips, but pretty much everywhere has alternatives nowadays and the majority of them are healthy choices.
The great thing is, being healthy doesn’t have to be boring. If you go for the veggie option on the menu, for example, say something like hummus and roasted veg, you’ll be extremely satisfied and it probably won’t have been too high on the calorie count. It’s all about going for the right sandwich recipes when you’re deciding what to eat. There will be low-fat options out there, even if you have to do a bit of reading to find them.
There really is no point in ruining your healthy eating kick by consuming something fatty or unhealthy. It won’t just be disappointing, it’ll also make you feel fairly rubbish about yourself afterwards and that could continue at work, well past your lunch hour. Whether the sandwich is made on Hovis bread or the pub’s own variety, it’s still possible to find a low-calorie, filling treat that’ll see you through the afternoon.
If sandwiches aren’t your thing, maybe try a salad. You’re bound to find some interesting flavour combinations at the pub, especially if it’s of the gastro variety, which will satisfy your tastebuds and keep you going for the rest of the day.
So remember, next time you head for a work pub lunch, don’t just assume you need something stodgy and try something a bit different from their menu.
