Packing a lunch is a great idea. It not only saves you money, but it can be a lot healthier than takeout because you can control the ingredients you use. The downside can be that you fall into a sandwich rut. The Williams and McDaniel blog team have put together a list of delicious, sandwich-free lunch ideas that you can easily make in your Williams and McDaniel rental in Guelph and take with you, wherever you’re headed.
Butter Bean and Tuna Salad
This simple and tasty, packable lunch packs a high-protein punch that will help you power through the rest of your day. This Butter Bean and Tuna Salad keeps well for a few days in an airtight container in the fridge. You can make it in advance and check one item off of your morning to do list.
Chicken Rice and Black Bean Salad
This hearty and filling Chicken Rice and Black Bean Salad is a meal all by itself. It can be prepared the night before, with about 20 minutes of hands on time. Toss together cooked rice and chicken with rinsed black beans from a can, then add tomatoes, jalapeno, shallots, olive oil and vinegar and season to taste.
A great sandwich alternative that you can still eat with your hands, these Asian Chicken Omelette Wraps contain chicken with soy sauce, sugar snap peas and red pepper but can easily be modified with any fillings that you like, to suit your personal taste.
Couscous with Raisins, Pine Nuts and Capers
We love this recipe for Couscous with Raisins, Pine Nuts and Capers. It’s simple to prepare but creates richly complex layers of savoury and sweet flavours and it’s super-satisfying. It only takes 20 minutes to make. If you can boil water and sauté some onions in olive oil, you can do this.
