10 easy and delicious recipes to liven up your lunch break

Now that we’re all spending our days at home, each afternoon we’re faced with the same problem again and again — what to have for lunch?

Since we've all been working from home, that means no more popping out to grab a sandwich, or treating yourself to a coffee and cake at your local café. Instead, we’ve all been forced to become acquainted with our kitchens, whether we like it or not.

To make things that little bit easier for you, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite lunch-time recipes, which are so easy even a kitchen newb could master them.
