Overcoming sandwich boredom

The following lunch ideas will take your midday meal from drab to delicious in no time!

Are you fed up with the cucumber sandwich, tossed salad, and exactly eight almonds you have every day for lunch? Has lunchtime become just another item to tick off your schedule? Is opening your lunch bag about as thrilling as a rerun of the Joy of Painting? If you answered “Yes” to any of the above questions, it’s time for an intervention.

The following lunch ideas will take your midday meal from drab to delicious in no time!

  • Crunchy Sweet Potato Salad
  • With rustic sweet potatoes as the base, this salad is the essence of fall, dressed up with crunchy tart apple, toasty pistachios, and juicy raisins.

  • Quick Curried Chicken Sammie
  • Take your boring sandwich to the next level with this ethnic take on the classic chicken salad. Use leftover chicken from the night before to create this no-fuss lunch creation.

  • Chickpea Goji Berry Salad
  • Throw this superfood-packed salad together on a Sunday afternoon and store in an air-tight container for lunches all week. It’s like a party in your mouth!

  • Tofu Pitas with Chunky Peanut Sauce
  • This vegetarian lunch option combines tofu with a creamy, coconut and peanut-based sauce, all packed into a mess-free pita pocket.

  • Luscious Lentil Soup
  • This soup is better leftover, when the flavours really marry. Cook up a batch for dinner one night and enjoy it even more the second time around for lunch.
