Do you enjoy having a sandwich for breakfast? Then introduce some vegetables into your sandwich or burgers. You add more goodness to your meal, a bit of fibre and bulk to your bland bread meal. Reducing the bread to allow more veggies is even healthier. You can also try to order a veggie pizza, delicious!

We hope you try these suggetions out for a bit healthier in your everyday life. Go to your local market and take a break from the usual veggies and you’d be surprised. A variety of veggies are actually grown locally in Nigeria and we don’t know about. Ask around a bit and liven up your plate and your table with amazing healthy additions.
