You know those people who like to come in early and make tea or coffee in peace and to calmly turn on their computers and enter their daily tasks in this serene state of mind? The people who have those fashionable ‘bag-for-life’ style lunch bags and Tupperware boxes full of pre-cut vegetables and luscious lunches? Yeah, I hate them too.
If you’re like me, the time you have for making lunches for work in the morning is actually in negative figures. I mean, I’d love to be one of those people who get up a little early in the morning to craft some delicious creation for lunchtime consumption, but let’s face it: I am not.
I would rather sleep ten minutes longer than do anything else than the bare essentials that make me look like at least somewhat suitable for civilized society and get me to my office bang on time, not a minute before.
And I know, I know, that it’s important to take your lunch break and not rush through it (or your food) but if I have to pop to the shop on lunch to get my grub and eat it as well… I mean ain’t nobody got time for that.
So I envisaged this super quick and easy salad that is not only packed with your favourite super foods, it’s also done from scratch in about 5 minutes and it keeps you full from lunch till you get home. I tend to shop the ingredients on Monday and then store them in our office fridge for the remainder of the week and hey presto: I have a supply of fresh salad for every day of the week without having to stress about what to eat (and whether you have time to eat it)
What to get:
Green leaves (rocket, spinach, watercress… whatever you fancy really)
Cherry tomatoes – quartered
Cucumber – diced
Green olives – sliced
Red pepper – diced
Prosciutto and salami, shredded
Couscous – prepared to instructions, as much as you fancy.
And then all you do is… well, mix it up and enjoy. The best thing is that you can mix and match the different ingredients based on your preferences and it still tastes spot on and it’s quick as anything.
Let’s talk lunches in the comments y’all ❤❤❤
