Toasted rye bread with avocado, smoked salmon and a boiled egg
Boil an egg at home until medium (it’ll keep cooking in your lunch bag while you’re stuck in traffic). (Learn the secret to perfectly boiled eggs here.) Pack 1 slice Woolworths Berliner Landbrot or 100% rye bread, a small avocado and a few ribbons of smoked salmon into your lunch bag. At work, toast the bread and peel and chop the egg. Spread the avo on the toasted bread, top with the salmon ribbons and the egg. Season with salt and pepper.
Soak 1 cup oats (the proper kind, not instant) overnight with a couple of tablespoons of Woolworths full-cream yoghurt, a little milk, chopped almonds and a handful of sultanas. Spoon a portion into a Tupperware and take to work with a small apple. Chop the apple, stir into the oats and drizzle with honey.
Alternatively, try this overnight breakfast jar with apple, cardamom and pistachios.
Warm “apple pie” oat bowl
At home, measure ½ cup oats into a Tupperware, add a sprinkling of cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Pack a handful of almonds and a small apple into your lunch bag. At work, transfer the oats into a microwave-proof bowl, add approximately 2 cups water, the almonds and the chopped apple. Microwave for approximately 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, or until thick and bubbling. Warning: Keep an eye on it as it overflows easily!
Easy microwave omelette
Pack 2 eggs, a couple of mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and spinach into your lunch bag. At work, beat the eggs in a bowl with a little milk, then add the sliced mushrooms and tomatoes and tear in the spinach. Microwave for approximately 2 minutes, or until the egg is set. Season with salt and pepper.
Chia seeds soaked in coconut milk
Soak ½ cup chia seeds in 1 can light coconut milk overnight. The chia seeds contain a natural gelatinous substance that will slightly set the mixture. Spoon a portion into a Tupperware and enjoy with fresh berries and almonds. This is quite rich, so you only need a small portion.
