With many diets suggesting reducing how much bread we eat – or in some cases cutting it out of our diets completely – it can be a little difficult to find a healthy lunch alternative that is more substantial than an a bowl of salad alone and, especially during the cold weather of winter, is warming to get us through the rest of the day.
