A Week of Healthy Lunches

My friend Bríd brings the most wonderful salads to work every day for lunch. After we joked a few times about how I’d have to blog a week of her lunches, we got to a stage where I decided to do it. Being January, I’m trying to eat healthily and always find it difficult to think of things to put in my salads. Bríd’s lunchbox is always brimming with ideas. All last week she brought her lunch in on a plate instead of a lunchbox and made them even more colourful and delicious looking.
