The most difficult part about going on a Banting diet (a diet high in fat and low in carbohydrates) is that finding something suitable to eat at a takeaway spot or restaurant is often tricky or even impossible. Addressing this, Sandwich Baron has introduced a new range of Banting meals to suit your pocket. And not only that, delivery is free if you order online!

Food24's most popular low carb recipe and why Banting isn’t a passing fad

Sandwich Baron sent some of its meals to our offices, and they came fresh and on time. While some meals were a delicious hit (we highly recommend the Banting omelette filled with cheese, avocado and bacon for R49), others were a little dismal. The chicken and avo salad (R43) featured dry shredded chicken on a bed of iceberg lettuce (sacrilege!). Can we all start a movement banning iceberg lettuce from restaurants? And while the Banting burger (R42) with avocado, bacon and Gouda cheese was tasty, the crispy chicken bits salad (R39) left a lot to be desired.

Nevertheless, Sandwich Baron should be commended for making fresh food for a relatively good price (meals from around R25 to R49) and giving carb-conscious eaters a convenient option to try. With options ranging from about R25 for a Scotch egg to R49 for a burger, it really isn’t a bad option for a low-carb lunch that doesn’t break the rules.

In short, #Trending gives this service a thumbs up, but skip the salads and go for the burgers, breakfasts, omelettes and picnic boxes instead.
