So what about those Monday's when you've been flat out all weekend or taking a weekend away. An easy solution for inexpensive lunches (i.e. avoiding take aways!) is to buy a bunch of groceries on the way to work and keep them in the fridge. An easy salad takes a few minutes to throw together with the follow convenient groceries.
Bag of baby spinach / wild rocket
Bag of kaleslaw
Hot Smoked Salmon Fillet
Tinned tuna in olive oil
1/2 Dozen Eggs
Punnet Cherry tomatoes
Pepita & Sunflower mix
Hummus or other dip
Chives or other herbs
Day 1 & 2
Mix the kaleslaw and it's dressing, in the bag provided. Put 1/2 the bag into a bowl and 1/2 of the salmon fillet, sliced, top with some seeds.
1/3 bag of baby spinach / wild rocket
1/4 or 1/2 avocado
Halved cherry tomatoes
A couple of spoonfuls of hummus or other dip
* 2 eggs into a ramekin, whisk with a fork and cook in the microwave for 1 minute (or longer if needed). Chop and mix through the salad / dip mixture. This is delicious on a wrap bread or bread roll.
* Tuna, seeds, chives / other herbs (extra egg optional)
I sometimes like a piece of fruit and cup of herbal tea if I'm still hungry after this delicious and light lunch.
