I’ve been taking my own lunch to work for about a month now. My favourite thing to take (or maybe easiest) is a tuna salad. I tend to chop up anything in the fridge (baby gem lettuce, peppers, red onion, celery) grab some olives and throw it all into a big bowl with tuna and butter beans. This usually lasts a good few days and I can take it into work in food boxes. I’ve had a few tuna disasters before so I’ve finally got some good boxes from Ikea and they seem to be super tight.
I had a particularly nice salad the other day, the leaves came straight from the garden and included my favourite chocolate mint. Mint is probably one of the easiest herbs to grow, if you see a packet of chocolate mint then try it out for yourself – it’s a fab topper for when you’re baking or you can add it to salmon, salads or tea. There aren’t any rules, you can do what you want with it!
Do you take your own lunch to work? If you do, I’d love a bit of inspiration!
