I am a health enthusiast with a degree in medicine and public health. I have over 5 years of experience working in the clinical and non-clinical setting. I have experience in medical writing and review with published articles on PubMed.

I could eat this sandwich for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. All in the same day.

Carrot Cake Sandwich

Boasting all of the flavors and textures of carrot cake, this sandwich is obviously much healthier than a piece of the traditional dessert. Lightly sweetened low-fat cream cheese is layered with spiced grated carrots, raisins, and toasted walnuts – all of which are sandwiched between two slices of whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread.

With this decadent-tasting but irrefutably healthful sandwich, you can have your cake and eat it too!
