Easy Weekday Work Lunches

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

Avocado

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.

Day 3-5

Step 1

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

Step 2

Either

* 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.

Or

* 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.
