A Yummy Lunch


I have a few lunch options that I absolutely LOVE from 12WBT.

The other day, taking ingredients we have been having on the program, I created my own recipe.  One of the items that I have been introduced to on the 12WBT program is Mountain Bread.

Chia Mountain Bread

This is so delicious, so nice and light.  As my son eats more calories than I do, when i make these I give him two slices of mountain bread, whilst I only have one.

So this is one of my favourite lunches at the moment, it is 261 calories (so you could increase this slightly by adding more salad items or a little more turkey).


I start with a slice of chia mountain bread

I spread 1/4 of an avocado out over the whole slice of bread.

I then measure out 120 grams of oven roasted turkey breast.

Weigh the turkey to ensure you have the right amount.


I cut off all fat (sometimes there is a little around the top) and lay this out over the avocado, covering the mountain bread.

I then sprinkle a large handful of radish sprouts over the whole mountain bread (about half a cup).

Radish Sprouts (or microgreens)

I then wash some english spinach (about 1/4 to half a cup, it's only 2 to 4 calories for 1/4 to half a cup of spinach so add as much as you like)

I then carefully roll the mountain bread.

Voila, this is how it looks.  Yummy, filling and healthy!

I like spreading the ingredients out over the whole mountain bread, rather than just putting them in the middle and rolling as you get a mixture of bread and ingredients the whole way through.  At just 261 calories, this is a delicious and filling lunch!
