There’s more to this than meets the eye………….

Question of the day – what would you like for Lunch?
I’m absolutely chockers with the amount of food I’ve eaten this past few days so something light please.

What about an Egg and Bacon sandwich?
Light I said – that’s almost a meal!

Bet there’s as many calories in an Egg and Lettuce sandwich as there is in a Bacon and Egg sandwich!!

So here’s the info on the light lunch of an Egg and Lettuce sandwich

Interesting isn’t it
As expected the calorie count as well as the fat count in the B&E sarnie is higher
But there are more carbs and less protein in the E&L Sandwich

Low Carb diet or Low Fat diet – which is it to be?
Unfortunately it is the combination of the fats, sugar and sodium (salt) that we also have to take into account 😦

Anyway just for today we ended up having the unhealthy ‘tasty’ option 🙂

  1. That is quite fascinating. I shall feel less guilty when I am out and have a bacon and egg butty, and I don’t know how I will feel when my partner makes me a curried egg and lettuce sandwich.


  2. Blow the calories, that all looks delicious! I love bacon and egg sandwiches Cathy. Glad to see you have HP sauce down there in Oz. When I was living in America, I had to search for it!
