National Sandwich Week is here so make sure you pick a healthy one for lunch!!

It is officially National Sandwich Week, so with this in mind and considering that last year it is estimated over 1.8 billion sandwiches were purchased, it is not surprising that this is the most popular choice of food at lunchtime.  Yet what appears to be an innocent sandwich, and can sound healthy in its title, can often be stuffed with more fat and calories then we expect, so this easy on-the-go food can soon help expand our waistline if we make the wrong choices. So with this in mind, I went to the major high street fast food stores and became the Sandwich Detective, finding out which are the ones to order and the ones to avoid, and which ones can save you in some cases a whopping 340 Calories each time!!!!!
