Sometimes (well.... who am I kidding, most times) I can't be bothered with lunch. It really annoys me! I hate having to cook double in a day, and I'm not a super huge fan of sandwiches. But I've been trying hard to eat healthy lunches and found the key to being motivated to eat lunch is simple food and pre preparation!
With this Spinach & Potato salad for instance, I cooked the potatoes and the eggs the night before while I was already cooking dinner, and put it in the fridge ready to be mixed with greens and hey presto - that's lunch!
This salad is simple and delicious... it doesn't really need much of an explanation but you can find the recipe below.
