Beans on Toast

Beans on toast. Student food or a healthy start to the day?

These particular beans (Tesco healthy living reduced salt and sugar) claim that a half can provides two of your five a day. Washed down with a glass of fruit juice this tots up to three of your five a day.

Go steady on the juice though as it contains lots of sugar. Its also worth looking at the salt and sugar content of the beans you choose as these can be very high in some brands.

Serve your beans on a couple of slices of wholemeal toast and you are adding yet more fibre to your diet. Again choosing a light spread, (we are currently using "Clover Lightest Ever"), will help reduce the amount of fat intake. Although only slightly every little helps.

Bread can be an unlikely source of high sugar and salt levels so again  it is worth looking carefully at the brand you are using.
