For quite some time now plastic bags are really really out. We could say out of fashion. Old fashioned. Whatever…
We all know how hard it is sometimes to find the time to sit down and have a meal, especially during busy office days. Normally, heading out for lunch simply isn’t an option – either there isn’t enough break time, or we’re simply too busy with work to actually leave our desks. In times like this, it is absolutely necessary to bring your own food – office lunch isn’t ideal, but it’s nice to sometimes have a sit-down with your co-workers and chat while eating a home-made meal (even if it’s just a salad).
To make your lunch-time office blues less severe, here are three simple recipes for you to try out next time you know you won’t be able to visit your favourite restaurant during your break.
Instead of spending a fortune on expensive restaurant meals, why not buy the ingredients yourself and save some money? This easy-to-make, fresh, and delicious meal is not only super fun to make yourself, but it will also help you keep track of your health goals! And, to be honest, this recipe is probably more delicious that the one you’re used to ordering. Because of the ingredients, it will make you more energized, which is definitely a plus considering you have to get back to work right after.
Ingredients You’ll Need for the Wraps
Ingredients You’ll Need for the Dressing
First, use a whisk to combine all the dressing ingredients (you can store it in a fridge for up to a week). Then, in a bigger bowl, mix together the rest of the ingredients (chicken, mandarin oranges, celery, carrots, cabbage, almonds, salt and pepper) and add in the dressing. Toss until the dressing covers the salad, then lay out some lettuce leaves. Add an appropriate amount of the spread (about 60-90 grams), fold in the sides, and roll.
Pack the wraps into a lunch box, add some slices of mango to the side, and your office lunch is good to go!
This healthy pasta recipe will keep you energized the entire day! Whether you prefer it hot or cold, it’s the perfect meal to take with you to the office. Not only is it easy to prepare, with enough protein and delicious ingredients, it is also suitable for vegetarians. To make it even more nutritious, consider replacing regular pasta with a whole-wheat alternative.
Ingredients You’ll Need
Add all of the ingredients (tomatoes, garlic, cucumbers, red peppers, artichokes, olives, and cooked pasta) into a large bowl, then add the beans and mix gently. Season with lemon juice and olive oil, and add salt and pepper to taste. If at all possible, let the mixture sit for an hour so the pasta absorbs all the juices. After placing the salad into your lunch box, sprinkle some feta cheese on top for added taste.

Gently mix, then add in the seasoning and fold in the mango.
