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
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
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.
