These days, avocado toast is all the fitness rage, but for any Jamaican, it's as simple as bread and pear! Add eggs, and you've got a hearty, nutritious sandwich.
Pear and egg on toast.
Rolled hardo slices, cheese and heaps of hidden vegetables. These pinwheels with carrots and cucumbers fit nutrition into meal-time fun.
A pinwheel — a sandwich in a roll — is the best way to sneak in those veggies. Serve with cookies, fruits or vegetables, and it's the perfect school-time snack.
A tuna sandwich is one of the classics but for the mom and dad counting calories or the gluten-free son or daughter, switch out the Hardo Slices with a National Rice Cake.
Add spices and veggies to your tuna topping for an outstanding balance of tasty and nourishing.
