LUNCH BOX IDEAS | #g.elfoodies

Hello everyone!! I miss you all.
It’s been a while since my last post. After the lockdown real-life hit me! Having a full-time job far away from my hometown limited my free time. I believe I’m not the only one in this position. Well, it must be hard for all of us but I’m glad that we are free to go to work (at least).

Since I have been struggling to find time to cook a proper meal I started thinking about what could be the easiest way to prepare a nice tasty lunch for work! I came up with the easiest solution. Ask your mum or your boyfriend to cook for you, I am kidding guys! 🙂

So today I’m sharing with you an easy lunch box to prepare for work full of vitamins.

Shopping List

  • Your favourite salad mix (I used lettuce & baby rocket)
  • 3 tbsp pre-cooked chickpeas
  • 2-3 mushrooms
  • A carrot
  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • A cucumber
  • 50g 0% fat feta cheese (click here to find out feta cheese benefits)


Step 1: Chop the carrot and the mushrooms.

Step 2: Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chopped carrot and mushroom, cook for 2 – 3 minutes and then add 3tbsp chickpeas. Do not forget to add salt, black pepper and broken coriander. Cook for 7 minutes and let them cool down.

Step 3: Meanwhile place the remaining ingredients in a box.

Step 4: Once the cooked ingredients cool down add them in the box.

Step 5 –Dressing– : A tbsp of tahini. For a better taste add the dressing before you eat the salad. If you are not a big fan of tahini add some olive oil lemon juice dressing and you are ready!
