The Highway Rat has fast become one of Luke’s favourite books and I’m sure some of that is thanks to the BBC’s animated film production they aired over Christmas.

Food: 47 Cheese Free Vegetarian Sandwich Fillers

Confession time: I spend way too much money over a monthly period on cheese. That’s with us even buying cheap own brand cheese from places like ASDA and Lidl. With Baby Number 2 on the way, it’s time to not only start saving money on our food bills where possible, but it’s also time to cut out some slightly unhealthy habits. As the resident veggie, I tend to be the cheese fiend in the house. I desperately needed some inspiration for cheese free vegetarian sandwich fillers that were still cheap, healthy and exciting.
