A cheese toastie is a perfectly nutritious meal

11th September, 2023

Because diet culture and the “wellness industry” is allowed to say whatever they want with little regulation, we have reached a point where educated and intelligent people now truly believe a toasted cheese sandwich is unhealthy.

I am constantly surprising my clients when I explain that a toasted cheese sandwich can be a perfectly nutritious meal.

In fact, if all you ate for an entire day was toasted cheese sandwiches (using white bread), you’d get most of your nutrition, only being low in Vitamin C and a little low Vitamin B6, Magnesium and Iron. Make the sandwich with grainy bread and then you’re only low in Vitamin C and Vitamin B6. Throw in half an orange and you have your vitamin C needs for the day… Just saying…
