One generous serving, just for you, or two can share.

Ingredients

1 wholewheat baguette (homemade or bought)

0.5-1 avocado (depending on how big your avocado is)

A few slices of mild Brie cheese

1-2 tbsp Cranberry sauce (homemade or bought)

1 handful of rocket

1 tbsp pistachios

 

Preparation

Toast your baguette in the oven/on a toaster, so it is crispy and warm

Cut the baguette in half

Smash the avocado with a fork in a bowl and spread it out on the bottom half of the baguette

Put your brie slices on top of the smashed avocado so the baguette is covered

With a spoon, evenly distribute some cranberry sauce on top of the brie

Spread out the rocket on top of the cranberry sauce

Sprinkle some pistachios on top

Place the other baguette half back on top

Enjoy!

Why this is better for you

This recipe uses a baguette made from wholemeal flour. Wholemeal flour is ground cereal grain from which only the hard outer layer has been removed. The grain husk is rich in fibre and vitamins and there are also healthy nutrients inside. The most important substances in whole grains are B vitamins, minerals such as iron, zinc, magnesium and secondary plant compounds. There is increasing evidence that a diet high in fibre reduces breast cancer risk.

It is a vegetarian lunch and has no meat in it. There is increasing evidence that processed meat slightly increases breast cancer risk.

Avocado contains several vitamins, minerals and fibre. The type of fat in an avocado is mainly unsaturated (specifically, monounsaturated), which, when eaten in place of high-saturated-fat foods, can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
