It's January 2nd and, chances are, you have high hopes to become healthier over the coming twelve months.

Also, your bank balance has probably taken a battering over the festive season so the life-transforming gym membership might have to wait for a few more weeks.

Worry not, as one simple step could solve both of these worries.... bringing in your lunch to work.

It's crazy the amount of money that even the most financially savvy of us spend on lunches over the course of the year, especially as its so easy to throw together something super tasty at home.

Invest in some lunchboxes (Dealz have really cheap ones) and you'll never look back. 

Here are a few recipes to start you off...

Roasted Sweet Potato And Carrot Soup

Is there anything more comforting than a warm bowl of soup? This is cheap as chips and will last in the fridge for a few days.
