Simple, versatile wheat or corn flour wraps are super quick and are an easy swap if you find you eat bread too often!
Wraps with your favourite filling (we currently love fake ham, salad and sriracha!)
A little pot of cherries, some carrot sticks, half an avocado
Plus a little pot with some pudding in it (we love a few broken biscuits and some dates or prunes!)
Don't forget the teaspoon for the avocado!
That's a Healthy Stack of Sarnies!
Traditional sandwiches can easily be made lighter and more healthy with plenty of salad along with your favourite protein. If in doubt, add more veg!
This Mintie Max and Duo are packed with delicious and healthy sandwiches filled with cheese, onion, rocket, grated carrot, lettuce and a smidge of garlic mayonnaise.
On the side, a beautiful mix of heirloom mini tomatoes, raspberries and blueberries
