Do you find that you are often packing the same things for your lunch? Before I go to work my mornings are very busy, I need to walk the dog, make sure my son has everything for school, sort out breakfasts and packed lunches. Mornings can be a frantic race against the clock. I try and do some of it the night before, but there is always some emergency like lost homework. It is funny that it doesn’t matter if you ask the night before, these things are always remembered the next day resulting in a mad panic.
When it comes to lunch I like to make it fresh in the morning. I try to make something healthy that is low in calories as I am currently trying to lose weight. Recently I have been trying Warburtons Thins which are ideal if you are trying to cut down bread. They only contain 100 calories per thin so are great if you are on a diet. At the moment if you buy Warburtons Soft Brown Sandwich Thins in Asda 10p from each sale will go to the 2015 Ticked Pink fund, helping to support the over half a million women in the UK currently living with or after a diagnosis of breast cancer. Warburtons Sandwich Thins are RRP £1.28 for pack of six including the 10p donation.
Warburtons Soft Brown Sandwich Thins are part of the Asda Tickled Pink campaign which has a range of gorgeous pink products products to help support the incredible work of Breast Cancer Now and Breast Cancer Care. From pampering products to clothing by picking up any of these you are supporting a great cause. I was sent some of these products to try and think it is a lovely range and a great way to raise money for the charity.
The other day I came up with a tasty and delicious sandwich filling that was perfect for jazzing up my lunch. The filling can be prepared the night before and the sandwich assembled the next morning and taken to work or school. It uses natural yoghurt with red pepper, coriander and lemon rind which gives it a bit of zing. When mixed with chicken and crunchy lettuce it is a lovely tasty sandwich to brighten up your afternoon.

If you are looking for other sandwich ideas I came up with a few when I enjoyed a picnic in the garden. It is getting a little cold to do this now but the sandwiches are still great for lunch. What is your favourite sandwich filling? I am always on the look out for new ideas.
I was sent the products to try in return for an honest opinion, I was not obliged to say anything nice.
