The secret to being a glowing London yogi is to develop little habits that give you comfort and joy throughout the often gruelling and stressful city days. One great way of doing this is preparing yourself a packed lunch every day full of sunshine, fresh goodness. It’s a little gift for yourself every lunch time, nourishing yourself and giving yourself the care that you need.
What makes a good packed lunch?
Wholegrain salads are a fantastic as they can be eaten cold, they can be stored for several days in the fridge and they are a cheap way of getting organic, natural ingredients into your diet more regularly. Once you have experimented a bit, you’ll find yourself adapting tried and tested recipes to incorporate seasonal cominations and special offers. It’s a great way of using up that veg box too!
One of my favourites is Bulghur Wheat. You just add some veg and cheese if you’re not vegan, a good swig of olive oil, lemon juice, herbs and toasted seeds. Absolutely delicious!
Try a Squash and barley salad with sun-dried tomatoes, basil, broccoli and pumpkin seeds
Try the Courgette and quinoa salad – with cherry tomatoes, feta cheese and parsley
