Lunch inspiration

September is coming and back to school time seems like a good opportunity to make good resolutions when it comes to our workday lunch.

Our advice: stay away for the chicken roll from the deli counter (unhealthy and pricey) and get used to bringing your lunch to work.

And why? Because you will be able to control exactly what you put in your box and you will save a bucket load of money. 

To give you some inspiration to make your own lunch everyday, we have gathered our favourite foodie Instagram accounts that will make you drool and find motivation to stay away from the #SadDeskLunch.

YOU GUYS. I just made the freshest OIL-FREE GRAIN FREE BAKED FALAFEL you've ever seen and it was DELICIOUS! Sharing on the blog ASAP because this needs to be had all day every day! Decided to stick with my Mediterranean theme this week because that CUCUMBER TAHINI TZATZIKI is still in the fridge… I wrapped my falafels into a collard green but the ideas for these tasty patties are ENDLESS. Subscribe to the link in my profile for recipe updates so you're notified when I share the recipe for this one! I used to love getting falafel out but I always noticed I felt a bit awful after eating it…probably a mixture of too much oil and strange spices…eek. So happy to have my own go-to recipe to share with minimal ingredients! Falafel is back in DA HOUSEEEEE. *~*~*~* #floraandvino #oilfreefalafel #bakedfalafel #falafel #summertoneup #bikiniwrap #collardwrap #lunchinspo #tiu #tiuteam #tiugirl #tiucheckin #tiubikiniseries #tiumeals #tiucommunity #macros #fitfam #bbg #bbgfood #kaylasarmy #bbgcommunity #foodblogger #foodphotography #foodphotographer #positivevibes #glutenfree #oilfree #glutenfreevegan #grainfree

Ready to dive into this giant salad after spending a couple days indulging in all the food and drink while on a family trip to the coast. People always ask me how I stay healthy while I'm traveling. Here's the short answer: I usually travel with all my supplements, green powders, collagen, etc., and I definitely seek out places I can get my morning matcha, a green juice and a healthy grain bowl. But I also allow myself to indulge and enjoy without beating myself up over it or feeling guilty about it. It's important to give ourselves permission to experience a new place without feeling like we've failed if we drink a couple glasses of wine or eat a hot fudge sundae all to ourselves. Life is for living after all! And then when I get home and back into my routine, I'm even more grateful for the delicious, nourishing foods I make in my kitchen and the commitment I make to respecting my body in that way. Oh, and if you're wondering what's in the salad: arugula, radicchio, quick-pickled watermelon radish, chioggia beet, za'atar roasted chickpeas, almond ricotta, basil, fennel fronds and dill flowers. #WuHaus

Our lunch breaks are a precious hour of freedom from the daily humdrum of the office, and we would rather spend them sitting in the sun than queueing. Obviously. 

Ever have the serious munchies but cannot be arsed waiting in line? Fancy falafel in the sun? Or cheeky cheesy chips in front of your computer? Burgers in the boardroom? Just-Eat have got ya sorted. 

Well luckily for us, the folks over at the delivery service have announced today that there will be NO minimum spend required by over 30 of our favourite lunchtime eateries. So you can get that sandwich delivered right to your office door without having to lift a finger.

Some of our favourite spots are in on it; we're talking Eddie Rockets, Umi Falafel, Chopped, Freshii, KFC, Counter Burger and Zamberos. We're salivating just thinking about them. 

“At Just Eat, we are all about making life easier for our customers," says Managing Director of Just-Eat, Amanda Roche Kelly. "Time is precious and that is why ordering at lunch time continues to grow in popularity as people ditch the queues for quick and easy collection or a delivery.

"We have worked with over 30 of our restaurant partners to remove their minimum spend requirement which is going to help make our lunchtime ordering service even more accessible for people. It’s available just in time for lunchtime in the park!”

Order between 12-4pm to avail of the deal for that perfect lunch for one. Treat yo'self. 

It's only available in Dublin city centre for now, but we hope that it goes nation-wide soon.

To make the deal even taster, Just-Eat have paired up with 11 fab new foodie hubs including delish American chain Five Guys, Sbarro's pizza and Sun Bear Gelato. Getting ice-cream AND pizza to your door? Yes please! 

Excuse us while we day-dream about food.
