Interesting isn’t it
As expected the calorie count as well as the fat count in the B&E sarnie is higher
But there are more carbs and less protein in the E&L Sandwich

Low Carb diet or Low Fat diet – which is it to be?
Unfortunately it is the combination of the fats, sugar and sodium (salt) that we also have to take into account 😦

Anyway just for today we ended up having the unhealthy ‘tasty’ option 🙂
