Nutritional values

Plenty of fibre is good for the intestines, digestion, blood sugar and cholesterol levels. In addition, one serving contains over 100 percent of the daily requirement of niacin. During physical work and intensive sun exposure it is particularly important to consume enough of it - this also applies to pregnant and nursing women.

The meat may be beaten flat for better handling. - Depending on what is currently on offer, you can also buy turkey breast meat or pork schnitzel for this recipe.
