Looking for some healthy food ideas following your Pilates workout? Something to satisfy those cravings and replace those burnt energy stores? Then look no further with this healthy Post Pilates Bacon Sarnie with Vogel’s Toast recipe that will hit the spot every time! This recipe features the Sunflower & Barley Loaf from Vogel’s Bread, which is a healthy, nutritious bread, packed full of nutrients.
- 2 Slices of Vogel’s Sunflower & Barley Bread, toasted
- 2 Rashes of Smoked Bacon
- Olive Oil or try some Coconut Oil
Let’s start with the bacon! For me it has to be smoked and we have some of the best back bacon in the world right here in the UK. To get it to it’s heightened crispy state you’ve got to grill it. Rub a little olive oil or coconut oil on a baking dish and the rashers and put under a hot grill for 8-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, it’s time to prep the bread and as you may know, bread is the most tasty when it’s toasted, especially Vogel’s Bread, it just makes the best toast! I prefer the lighter flavour of their Sunflower & Barley loaf so that we can get the full benefit of the flavoursome bacon.
It’s time to get the bacon out. I don’t butter my bacon sarnies instead I like to use it as a sponge to soak up all the delicious bacon juices. So get your Vogel’s tasty toast in there asap and layer your rashers on to the Vogel’s toast.
You can then always add a good dollop of brown or red sauce with your bacon sandwich, I always prefer brown. You may be a red kind of guy or girl and that’s fine but I enjoy the sweet and spicy flavour of brown sauce with the smokey bacon and Vogel’s nutty bread.
Then finally there’s only one thing left to do… pop the kettle on and get to enjoying your well earned Post Pilates Bacon Sarnie!

From Vogel’s Bread
“Vogel’s Original Mixed Grain recipe dates back to 1954. We make it properly, as with all our breads, with no emulsifiers, artificial preservatives or raising agents. There’s less flour and more seeds than your average bread, making our mixture runnier to the touch. As a consequence, our slices are smaller than those in an average loaf, but none-the-less, crammed to bursting with goodness. Proof good things really do come in small packages!”
Vogel’s offer four different types of breads: Original Mixed Grain, Sunflower & Barley, Soya & Linseed and Wholemeal & Oat, available from most supermarket or on their own website.
There really is such a thing as healthy bread that is not only nutritional, but natural too and makes one of the best toasts around.
