Lunch Box


I love having lunch out. I can easily make a quick dinner at night but lunch is a different matter. Maybe it’s because we’re more likely to be out during the day so automatically you find yourself in a café or little restaurant. Anyway, Dis has told me I eat out too much and he does have a point – it probably is my greatest ‘joy’ expense, way more so than clothes, lip gloss or gorgeous Cherry Chau glittery clips. I'm going out for dinner tonight so to compensate, I have made us healthy packed lunches to take to our desks. I want to eat mine now but it's only half eleven.

Rice noodle and hot-smoked salmon salad
Serves 2
100g rice noodles
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp caster sugar
1 small red onion
5cm piece cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
1 carrot, diced
2 small cooked beetroot, diced
1 red birds eye chilli, finely chopped, seeds and all
4 slices hot-smoked salmon
1 lime, cut into quarters
good shake of Food Doctors Omega Seed Shaker


1 Place the noodles in a large heatproof bowl, cover with boiling water and
set aside for 5 minutes or so.

2 In a separate, large bowl, mix together the vinegar, salt and sugar.
Thinly slice the red onion and add to the bowl.

3 Drain the noodles and cool under running water. Add to the bowl with the cucumber, carrot, beetroot and chilli and toss well together.

4 Divide into two lunch boxes and top with the salmon. Sprinkle on some Omega seeds and chill until ready to eat.
