7 Healthy And Easy Lunches That Are Work-From-Home Friendly
Working from home can definitely have its challenges at times, but it can also provide some convenient benefits (we're looking at you, peak hour traffic). One of our favourite things about working from the home office lately is preparing fresh lunches each day that don't cost a bomb and that we can control every ingredient of to make sure we're getting our daily intake of veggies and vitamins. If your WHF meals could use a bit of an update, take note of the following easy and nutritious lunches to try this week.
1. Vietnamese-style chicken rolls
This tasty recipe uses ingredients that you'll most likely be able to find laying around the pantry or in the fridge, so it's a great budget-friendly option too. In just a few minutes you'll have yourself a Vietnamese-inspired meal that's Insta worthy with minimal effort.
2. Chicken noodle soup
Is there anything more soothing for the soul than a bowl of hot chicken noodle soup? This hearty recipe is just the thing to break up the workday and is filled with nutritious root vegetables and herbs. Coming into winter, this will feature highly on our weekly lunch rotation.
3. Cauliflower pizza
We've never met a person who doesn't love pizza, and this cauliflower version is completely gluten-free and can easily be made on your lunch break at home. High in fibre and a great way to include an extra serving of veggies in your day, treat yourself to this guilt-free pizza lunch.
4. Chickpeas and dumplings
This lunch recipe is perfect for vegetarians who are looking for a tasty option that's full of rich flavour and depth. With a caramelised broth and gluten-free dumplings, this nourishing meal will quickly become a favourite.
5. Hayden Quinn's marinated tofu bowl
Full of colour and diverse flavours, this is the perfect lunch for when you want to raid the fridge and use all of your leftovers at once. You'll most likely have the majority of the ingredients stocked already to make this bowl of goodness tomorrow.
6. Avocado and soba noodle ‘stir-fry’ with peanut dressing
For something fresh and bursting with energy, this stir fry recipe is anything but traditional. Fill your plate with beautiful greens and vibrant red cabbage for a homemade lunch that's almost too good to eat.

These healthy pancakes aren't quite what you're used to. This spinach-infused lunch from Jamie Oliver's kitchen is equal parts nutritious and delicious, and the best part is that it only takes three steps to make!
