A Cyclist’s Lunch (aka Compost Sandwich)

Compost sandwich

Following the huge number of page views for my Cyclist’s Breakfast, I thought I might share my favourite lunch which I’ll have on the odd day I’m at home on my own.

I might as well get the possible disadvantages out of the way first, before I extol the wonderful features.  Firstly my wife, Rachel, keeps well away from me after I’ve had all this.  Can’t understand what all the fuss is about, there’s only one raw spring onion there and not a morsel of garlic.  Secondly my friend and fellow foodie blogger Natasha and her excellent The Nourishing Road blog would have a fit at the low fat veggieness!

Like all good meals, it contains a good mixture of ingredients, each serving a different purpose.  The combined taste is awesome (if pungent, maybe), filling, cheap, easy to make, involves no cooking and requires little washing up afterwards.  You can see it contains:

  • 2 slices of home made wholemeal bread
  • thin spread of Pure (soya based spread)
  • mayonnaise
  • lettuce
  • watercress  (aka pond weed)
  • red pepper
  • spring onion
This is ideal for a good dose of carbohydrate fuel with vitamins, useful fats and antioxidants.
I do like this, especially with some nice strong freshly ground coffee.  Perfect food for a post marathon recovery day.
