      Hi Jackie,

      Of course! Many of the other recipes can be enjoyed at lunch – see salads, soups, poke bowl etc. I often enjoy a sandwich with lots of coloured veggies, avocado and protein e.g. tuna, tinned salmon + cheese. Another easy-to-prepare option is a mini cheeseboard with whole grain crackers, cut-up veggies, dips and fruit slices. Other ideas include homemade rice paper rolls, eggs on toast (with a side of veggies), falafel in pita and wraps.

      Hope that helps!
