When you're working all week, you need a highlight to the day - something to look forward to that's going to raise your mood and your energy levels. Step forward tasty sandwiches. They're on the menus of every kind of restaurant from American to Arabic and there's so much choice out there that even your wildest lunchtime cravings can be satisfied. In fact, the toughest decision you'll have to face is which sandwich to enjoy on each day of the week. Luckily, we've been doing some homework for you and have come up with a five-day plan designed to match your mood.
1. Treat yourself on Monday
Start the week on a real high with the sumptuous Vadouvan Chicken Ciabatta from the Mediterranean-influenced Café Bateel. The bread is toasted ciabatta and the filling includes succulent chicken which has been marinated in French masala, avocado, tomato and pepper relish along with salad leaves and a zesty lemon dressing. If this doesn't put a real spring in your step and set you up for the week ahead we don't know what will!
2. Some comfort food for Tuesday
As we head deeper into the week and Friday still seems a long way off, it's a question of raising your spirits a little with some good old comfort food. So what could be better than a classic Cheese and Tomato Toastie from Costa Coffee? There's something about melted cheese that completely transforms it. And when you combine it with crusty granary bread and tomato, too, it's just what you need to see you through a Tuesday.
3. Surprise yourself on Wednesday
Wednesday's the day when you're in a sort of no-man's-land between the memories of last weekend and the promise of the next one. So, what you really need is a midweek surprise like the Boiled Egg Sandwich from Dose. It sounds like it's going to be just plain egg but you'll soon discover that there are extra fillings like cheese and lollo rosso lettuce too. In fact, we think it could be the best egg sandwich ever!
4. Ring the changes on Thursday
So, we've reached Thursday and you've had a sandwich every day so far. Maybe now's the time to change the page a little and go for a wrap instead. There are some amazing choices waiting for you at Athlete's Kitchen but, for our money, the pick of them is the Philly Cheese Steak Wrap. Strips of beef, grilled peppers, low-fat cheese and onions all wrapped up in a flour tortilla. What's not to like?
5. Spoil yourself on Friday
Finally, Friday's come around and you've earned yourself a special treat. Step forward the Cordon Bleu from Pomme De Pain. A crusty baguette comes filled with chicken, turkey ham and beef bacon and smothered with barbecue sauce. Mild and melting comte cheese completes the indulgent lunch that provides the perfect end to five days of sandwich satisfaction.
Next time you want to send out for a sandwich or five, you know who to ask. Deliveroo will be with you in perfect time for lunch.
