Healthy Snacks To Take To Work.

Whether you’re hunched over a desk all day, standing behind a counter or running between meetings, when lunchtime comes it’s very easy to grab something that’s not good for us. I’m guilty of it too; Starbucks is my weakness – and a very big weakness if I’ve had a stressful day.

I’ve found some healthy, lunch recipes that are perfect for taking to work and stopping you reaching for something you might regret later. I’ll be sharing these recipes regularly, so check back for more. 

Salsa

A perfect alternative to a boring, leafy side salad.

Ingredients
2 large tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 medium onion, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1tbsp limejuice
Salt & pepper
Fresh coriander, roughly chopped

Directions
Mix tomatoes, onions, jalapeno, garlic and limejuice. Season with salt & pepper. Leave to sit in the fridge for at least 20 minutes, or perhaps overnight. Stir in coriander before serving.

This salsa is great inside a tortilla with some chicken or ham, or tofu as a vegetarian option. You can marinate chicken breasts in vinegar (such as balsamic or red wine), herbs, mustard, garlic and a tablespoon of olive oil. Cooked over a medium heat, or under the grill, and then sliced into a tortilla wrap with the salsa and you’ve got a perfect, healthy lunch.
