I have a rather demanding 7 month old and never get time to make myself anything to eat during th day so end up grabbing biccies etc.
Does anyone have VERY quick, easy recipes for lunch that are quite healthy, and dont have cheese (I hate the stuff!)

couscous salad:

Pour boiling water over couscous according to instructions. Let it rest 5 minutes to rehydrate.

In the meantine prepare one two mixes:

1) 1 orange & 1 beetroot,chopped/ pine nuts and coriander

2) 1 tomato, 1 small onion 1 chunk cucumber or celery, chopped and parsley

toss either mixture with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper

make up your lunch the night before when DC in bed, or if you get DC has a morning nap, you can do it then. Put it in the fridge. Then you can just grab it and eat/heat if necessary. Stating the bleeding obvious, but took me a few months to catch on to that one and what a difference it made to quality of lunch-time meals!
