How often do you head to the office kitchen for lunch and feel dismayed by the contents of your zip lock bag? Ever felt a hint of envy over your coworkers lunch plate after staring at the sad lack of colour in your own meal?
I know that food envy can take hold of the best best of us at team MNB. All it takes is a sudden deadline, unexpected phonecall or load of washing to throw our lunchtime food prep out of whack the night before.
We’ve dreamed up a quinoa sushi recipe to spark your lunchtime inspiration in spring and reward your tastebuds with all the right flavours.
Protein has become the catch cry of our gym-loving generation. We all have an opinion on how much to eat, when and why. We also know which is our favourite. This recipe uses grilled chicken, but why not try salmon, egg or a vegan alternative? Find what works for you and go with that.
Grains are another buzzword in the foodie vocabulary. Did you learn to cook quinoa with our leading lady and lover of all things health, Lorna Jane Clarkson?
If you can’t stomach the thought of sea vegetables, ease into thoughts of nori by considering the numerous health benefits.
