5 SIMPLE lunches for the budget conscious and time poor

So, I have a REALLY bad habit of not preparing my lunch and then come lunch time, I stand and stare at the fridge wondering what on earth to eat and then, in the end, I have something really crappy. Do you do this?

If I go back to when I worked in the city, I remember spending SO MUCH money on buying lunch. The amount of money I could have saved and spent on lovely clothes is ridiculous. Sound familiar?

Anyway, I’ve come across these super easy lunch ideas from Sunny Queen Eggs that I wanted to share with you. Not only are they super simple to make, packed full of protein to keep you fuller for longer, they can be made beforehand. A couple are great for dinners too.

Oh yes, don’t forget these tips when cooking with egg:

  • Always sanitise benches and equipment to avoid cross-contamination between raw and cooked products.
  • Do not use cracked or dirty eggs.
  • Shell eggs, once cracked, should be fully cooked before consumption.
  • Always clean your hands thoroughly before and after handling egg and egg products.

If you’re an egg lover like me (sorry if you’re allergic), Sunny Queen has some more great recipes at www.sunnyqueen.com.au.

    I love eggs in sandwiches. Curried eggs and lettuce sandwiches are so yum.

    They all look really good, but eggs and nuts are not allowed at my boys school, so these would be for at home only!

    I’m always looking for recipes to use eggs – our four chooks lay eggs every day and we often struggle to get through them all! Last week we had 26 eggs in the fridge – everyone had poached eggs for breakfast and I managed to bake a couple of cakes to use up six more eggs 🙂 I love the sound of the bacon and pumpkin fritters – yum!
