~*United Colors of a Happy Breakfast Sandwich!

Nothing beats the taste of my all time favorite sandwich made of Bulgarian cheese, tomatoes, cucumber and zaatar (thyme).

United colors of a sandwich
30g of brown Arabic bread + 30g of Bulgarian cheese+ half a diced tomato+ 1 small diced cucumber + 1/2 tsp zaatar provide around 200 calories!

“I like reality. It tastes like bread.”  Jean Anouilh

White bread is made from wheat flour from which the bran and germ have been removed. The only difference between brown and white bread is that brown bread has more fiber and minerals.Fiber rich foods, delay the onset of hunger because they take a longer time to be digested.Therefore by eating brown bread one could simply feel fuller for a longer period of time and benefit from the virtues of fiber at the same expense of calories in white bread!
