I've been on a bit of a money saving kick recently, and one of my worst spendy habits is definitely my Pret addiction. And all other delicious lunch based food shops (Itsu, you have been my downfall too many times!) To try and save some pennies I have been making my lunch instead of eating out each day, and I have gotten bored of sandwiches incredibly quickly! Even the peanut butter and jam sandwiches which I ate every day at school for years are starting to get a bit dull.
To mix it up a bit I made a big bowl of quinoa + salad + stuff for lunch this week, and it was a really nice alternative. The batch above lasted me for three days, and I basically just filled it with whatever we had in the cupboards - being pepper, carrot, sweet potato and feta in this case. I read a tip, probably on one of the hundred or so photos of quinoa I have pinned on pinterest(!) which suggested cooking the quinoa with a stock cube to give it a bit more flavour, which was a really good idea.
Do you have any good lunchbox ideas for me to try? Please let me know your favourites to give me some ideas for next week!
