I try to take a packed lunch as much as I can, it normally ends up being 3 times a week depending on whether I am working late and have enough time to prepare but I always feel so much better taking a homemade lunch. The typical English option is a sandwich or roll however this is not the a great choice if you are using standard processed bread and stodgy fillings such as mayonnaise and butter.
There are so many healthier interesting nutritious alternatives you could prepare, it just takes a little experimenting,some planning on Sunday afternoon and a few bits of Tupperware.
This simple lentil lunch is so easy and quick to make. The mushrooms and red pepper give you a dose of vitamins and cooking in coconut oil means your get a delicious addition of healthy fats. I love anything in the form of stew, it must be a texture thing but I think everything tastes better in a stew. The ‘ready to eat’ puy lentils are so versatile and ‘faff’ free and the chickpeas are a filling crunchy extra.
