Today’s post is a recipe from a guest blogger, Christine. I follow her on Instagram (go and do the same @pink_osi) and her weekly meal preps are amazing.
She makes such creative recipes such as jerk cauliflower wings and sweet potato gnocchi in these cute little pink boxes and they put my simple quinoa salads to shame. I asked her to share a recipe on my blog so we can all try something new because chickpea curry does get boring after a while doesn’t it? So enjoy the recipe and be sure to let either of us know if you make it.
As promised, here are the remaining 2 recipes of the packed lunch series from Ranette of Love Loretta’s kitchen. [Visit her blog here] These recipes look equally as tasty and will definitely give you that lunch time energy boost as opposed to that afternoon bloat and slump that fast food gives you.
It’s important to pack food that you enjoy eating; if you don’t like kale salad then don’t force yourself to eat it! You’ll just end up throwing it away and heading out to the local chicken and chip shop. Choose a recipe that will make you countdown the hours until lunchtime (as if you don’t already) and that will help you stay on track health wise. We’ve given you four to choose from so you have no excuse – happy cooking!

By now you should know that I’m a packed lunch kinda girl. Whether I’m off to Uni, a day out or even to Church sometimes, there is some sort of edible in my bag. You just have to be prepared for any strike of hunger and who really wants to spend £3 on a meal deal every day. After all, those dry sandwiches get boring after a while don’t they?
Well, Ranette from lovelorettaskitchen.com has brought 4 amazing packed lunch recipes over to the blog. I’ll be posting 2 today and 2 later this week. These recipes look complicated but Ranette has assured me that they are simple to make. They look so good and they can all be made in bulk for a meal prep and then you can take a portion with you each day. You’d better pack two forks because your colleagues and classmates will be asking for a bite!
Go and check out Ranette’s blog; she has a wide range of great recipes from granola to ice-cream to Caribbean dishes. You’ll defiantly find something you like.
