Salads are one of the quickest and easiest lunches to throw together – just pop everything in a bowl, give it a mix and go. With almost endless flavour combinations, they’re also a great way to mix up your midweek menu and stave off lunchtime boredom. Experiment with using different leaves, grains or pulses as your base, layer up the toppings with colourful fruit and veg, protein-rich meat, fish, tofu or eggs, then amp up the flavour and texture with nuts, seeds, herbs, spices and dressings. Be inspired by our favourite healthy salad recipes.

Protein pots

Protein is an important part of a balanced diet. If you’re looking to increase your protein intake from time-to-time, our homemade protein pots make for a perfect snack or light lunch, and all contain around 30g protein:

Homemade wraps

Flatbreads and tortillas make a great alternative to bread, or you could use crisp lettuce leaves if you’re looking to cut the carbs. Protein-rich chicken and fish make great filling options, or pile on the veggies for a lunchtime nutrient hit.

Sandwich ideas

Forget soggy sarnies – our filling pittas, club sandwiches and toast toppers are packed with delicious, nutrient-dense ingredients that are sure to hit the spot. Pack up the ingredients separately and assemble at your desk for a super fresh open sandwich.

Portable soups

To avoid leakage, pop in a thermos flask with a tight seal. If you can make use of a microwave during your lunch break, you could batch-cook soup, freeze in Tupperware (that’s suitable for the freezer and the microwave), then thaw and reheat when you want to eat.
