Many of you find no time to cook dinner after long days at work, with kids or simply not fan of cooking. Sandwiches come to rescue the situation and satisfy your cravings; You can sup up any simple sandwich to become a consistent delicious meal. Not just that, it’s a pleasure to the eye also with all these colors blend.
Today’s sandwich in the makeover series, could serve you for breakfast as well; it is packed with nutrients and rich in compounds such as fibers (spinach), omega 3 fats (walnut), antioxidants (olive oil) and vitamins.
Did you know that the anthocyanin in the strawberry boost the short term memory by 100% in eight weeks? I think i will be hooked on strawberries for the next eight weeks!
To make this super sandwich you will need:
- Viennoise bread, or any type you favor
- Boursin cheese (nature)
- handful spinach baby leaves (6-7)
- green leaf lettuce (2-3)
- 4-5 walnuts
- 2-3 strawberry sliced
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Olive oil supplementation was found to positively affect the thickness of bones. It helps in the absorption of calcium in your body. I love how we Lebanese, and specifically our moms, do things by nature, like adding olive oil to a Labneh sandwich without having this knowledge. And many others examples that makes me feel proud of our healthy cuisine… Back to our sandwich, drizzling the olive oil on your Boursin cheese will help you benefit from the calcium in it and add a delicious taste.
If you are not fan of Boursin cheese, try it with goat or cottage cheese, they can both give you this pleasure! You will love this flavorful and fresh sandwich.
If you like the idea of the sandwich makeovers, stay tuned for the next post with another delicious, quick and healthy choice.

Raclette is a type of cow milk cheese, consumed in Switzerland and France. It’s commonly used for melting in small pans known as coupelles that are placed under a specialized grill looking like an electric table-top grill. Then the slices of melted raclette are poured over veggies, pickles, charcuterie and meat. Served with wine to seal the deal!
Throwing a raclette party at home is the most fun thing. Tomorrow is new year, and with kids outing became a bit difficult; We are hosting at home a raclette concept party.
Not going so much traditional, we are not just melting raclette, we got gruyere, mozzarella, gouda and brie. You can use any cheese of your choice that melts. As for the side ingredients with the cheese, you can go as much creative as you want; go for anything that pairs well with your choice of cheese.
My favorite raclette ingredients that i am serving :
- Veggies (fingerling potatoes, sliced courgettes, sliced aubergines, sliced mushrooms, asparagus spears, broccoli florets, sliced capsicum, onion rondelles and cherry tomatoes). You can precook them if you want to save time.
- Fruits (melon, strawberry and grapes)
- Pickles (cornichons, pearl onions, jalapenos and olives) you can add to this list anything pickled that you fancy
- Meat (strips of beef, bresaola, salami)
- Condiments (salt, pepper, basil, rosemary and oregano)
- Nuts (walnut), the crunch of nuts is a tasty contrast to the creaminess of cheese.
You can simply pour the melted cheese over these ingredients or include baguette slices.
If you want to end your dinner with a dessert, melt chocolate and marshmallows to satisfy your sweet tooth. With fruits you can take it to the next level.
Hopefully this post was beneficial to you whether it’s your first time to have a raclette or you are already a connoisseur. Enjoy it, nothing says happiness more than cheese 🙂

Food art is so fascinating for kids as for adults. I will never mind to get such plate as breakfast in bed. I find it amusing too 🙂
Anyone can make this cute breakfast (could be a snack as well). Very simple and easy. You will need:
- thin slices of cucumber cut lengthwise for the stems
- 2 carrots slices to make the fish
- handful cereal breakfast for the sea
- small raisins for the water bubbles
- one big raisin cut in 4 for the turtle hands and legs
- one medium raisin for the turtle head
- one kiwi slice for the turtle body
- edible paint for the turtle and fish eyes (optional)
It’s great to get your kid eat healthy food and have fun in the same time. When nady saw the plate he started waving his hands like a fish and singing. The turtle really grabbed his attention too! Amazed by his beautiful breakfast, he was hesitating whether to contemplate, play or start digging in!
Well he decided to polish off his delicious under the sea breakfast!
Never mind if your kid didn’t like the taste of kiwi, It’s one of my many attempts to offer this fruit to him but he doesn’t like it so far! But i will keep on trying…
Try these edible cool arts for your kids and give them a reason to always be happy and enjoy food.
Whatever you are doing, always add fun to you and your loved ones life! Happy day to all and lots of love and smiles x
