It's all in the sandwich....
A new study helps you pick which sandwich to eat for what occasion. Does anyone know where I can buy figs this time of the year?
CHOOSING the right sandwich can help you get ahead in the office, recover from a hangover or even perform better in bed.
Dr John Stanley, a lecturer at Oxford University, applied science to sandwiches to help provide the body with nutrients for different situations.
For example, he suggests eating a chicken tikka and mango salsa sandwich before a business meeting to stay alert.
An apple and peanut butter filling ideal before a gym workout.
Figs and honey produce an aphrodisiac sandwich when added to ricotta cheese and orange.
A toasted chocolate and banana sandwich is said to cure a hangover.
The final sandwich - smoked turkey with cream cheese - guarantees a good night's sleep.
