Bread; a grey area of pursuing a healthy lifestyle ….. it seems to be one of the first things people immediately drop when they start ‘A-fresh ‘( every week) I have a fond relationship with it, its one of the foods that has literally been breed into us, because after all we have grown up on toast as a staple breakfast option! I think a vital element to incorporate into a healthy lifestyle is number 1 balance and secondly taking the things you miss the most or that you slip up on and recreating them in a healthier fashion. There are a million of healthy bread recipes out there, all you need to find is one, one that suits you. I particularly love bagels!
Bagels, so easy to tart up and great to pack for lunch….a No brainer! So im going to share with you my seeded bagels perfect for making turkey ‘sambos’, BLTS or simply smothered in mashed avocado!
These keep for 6 days in an airtight container, perfect to have prepared for the week ahead or if you want something fast and filling on the move, just make sure your fillings are just as nutritious! Opt for lean protein sources and fresh leafy greens.
