Sandwich Baron has chosen to develop a Banting menu, recognising its health benefits. According to Sally J’Arlette-Joy, founder of Sandwich Baron, it is much more than a weight-reduction plan. “It primarily addresses the modern scourge of diabetes.”
“It is no flash in the pan, but is arguably the oldest eating plan first prescribed in 1861 by a Harley Street surgeon Mr William Harvey with great success to a corpulent London undertaker, Mr William Banting.”
“Knowing there is a growing market for healthy options, and that everybody loves a decent sandwich, we had to bring out a Sandwich Baron Banting Bar. We made it convenient for everyone to enjoy an authentic Banting sandwich every now and again without having to cheat,” said J’Arlette-Joy.
It has therefore been mainstream treatment for weight for more than 100 years, until displaced by the ‘high cholesterol’ eating plan of low-fat, high carbohydrate foods, which is today widely blamed for the global obesity epidemic.
Banting is of course not only about more fat and fewer carbs, but talks to the trend that many people increasingly only want to put quality, natural food into their bodies, as they are still concerned about cholesterol. “Our Banting menu only uses the very best.”
“We searched high and low for tasty Banting Diet bread and general recipes, tried many of them and selected our favourites,” said J’Arlette-Joy. These include a Banting Breakfast Box consisting of 2 boiled eggs, 2 rashers of bacon, 2 cocktail pork sausages, 2 slices of tomato with garlic and herbs; as well as a Banting omelette filled with cheese, avocado, bacon and served with a side salad and a balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing.
Sandwich Baron’s lunch time menu is equally popular and include Banting lunch boxes which contain chicken, eggs, avo and salad; or our popular Banting burgers, soup, chicken strips, salads and diet- friendly snacks.
Sandwich Baron has grown from one to 47 stores in two decades, with stores in Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Northern Cape and Western Cape, and is especially popular as breakfast and lunch meals for working folk and students alike.
