Working Lunch

Working Lunch | Miranda's Notebook

Whether working from home, or at school, I like to know I have a great lunch to hand. My favourite working lunches generally involve some kind of salad. I make up a big one over the weekend, or early in the morning, and it provides lunch for a few days: perfect for when you know you’ve got a busy week ahead of you.

This salad is very typical of the type of easy, healthy lunch I throw together. I generally use whatever is lying around in the fridge, and if you don’t have black rice, than a can of rinsed black beans works just as well. Eat with a hunk of bread and some cold cuts if you wish, and you’ll be well fuelled for the afternoon.
