You know the truth – making your own lunch will ultimately be tastier, cheaper and less time-consuming that any limp salad you queue for near work. 

It requires a few minutes work, but boy, the rewards are plentiful. 

Bonus points if you make these before work!

1. Spinach & sundried tomato pasta

All flavour, all filling, all whopper.

Tastes good either hot or cold, and can be made before bed or even while you're having your morning tea. That simple.

2. Chicken pittas

Chicken fillets, whatever vegetables are on special offer and a packet of pittas.

Healthy, cheap and actually super tasty. Variations of this will do you for the week. We recommend tucking into the spice cupboard to change up the recipes day in, day out.

3. Caprese ciabatta

A fancy name for a fancy sambo. All this involves is slices of mozzarella and tomato between slices of bread. Add leaves if you have them, and more cheese if you've been good this week...

4. Leek, asparagus & pea pasta

An easy, tasty lunch to throw together one evening – and add different recipes to every day of the week, to spice it up. 

Also, a much healthier alternative to a big bowl of pasta. Filling, too.

5. Chickpea salad sandwich

Decadent, filling and won't stink up the office like a tuna salad sandwich. It's also incredibly filling and will ensure that you don't snack throughout the day.

6. Miso ramen

Ramen is fast becoming the dish of the moment, due to its versatility and incredible flavour. 

The technique is simple, once you pick up a few key ingredients. It's also worth making in bulk, as you can use it over and over again.
