Deciding what to eat for the week at the office is always a struggle. It’s easy to fall into the trap of buying takeaways for lunch instead of making something nutritious and healthy. We asked Insta-famous food blogger Luyanda Mafanya to share some quick, affordable and healthy ideas you can make for your skaftin (lunch box).
‘Salads are always my go to, my favourite is the green bean salad that can be perfectly paired with a seared chicken breast or a piece of steak for lunch.’
Green Bean Salad
What you will need:
Squeeze of lemon
Roast Vegetable salad
Another salad I love is a roast veg salad because I like to use leftover veggies from the night before and it can be any combination of roast vegetables. Add salad leaves of your choice – rocket, baby spinach, lettuce or watercress and finish off with a cheese of your choice; feta, parmesan, Halloumi, ricotta, mozzarella or any other favourite.
Pita or wraps
Stuffing pita pockets with an array of ingredients is a nice way to add an interesting twist to your office lunches.
Add some store-bought falafel, hummus, eggplants, and a quick salsa if you want to try something meat-free or you can try chicken strips, beef strips or lamb strips.
Jars are quite a trend and generally easy to put together and reuse. You can now make a wholesome warm meal in a jar for lunch
