    Your office lunchbox, sorted!

    Tipiak

    We’ve been over soggy sandwiches in our lunchboxes pretty much since the first day of school. Luckily there are plenty of options that help you beat the afternoon office slump while still tasting amazing.

    The answer to your packed lunch dilemma? Couscous and quinoa. They’re not only healthy, flavourful and filling but making a nutrient-packed salad with either ingredient is a cinch. They taste just as delicious cold as they do hot, so make a batch on the weekend, keep it in the fridge and quickly pop in some fresh ingredients on a weekday morning. The ultimate lunchbox in minutes!

    Tipiak, a leading gourmet style French food company, has shared two awesome recipes that you can try this week.
