Quinoa and Vegetable Salad

Summer lunches in the office, inevitably getting fed up of limp salad. So roll in quinoa, one of those health foods that have been kicking around for years, that I have only just tried. It’s surprisingly easy to make, you’ll need 20g of quinoa per serving.

The best purchase I have made for my lunchbox, the Sistema Salad to Go Lunchbox. It has cutlery, separate components and a tiny jar for dressing.

Every night, I get all of the food out the fridge and make my lunch for the next day, a mix of whatever I have. The Brianna’s dressing are my favourite.
