Finding a lunchtime option that won’t break the budget but will keep you feeling full for longer can be a challenge. Add to the search something that’s also nutritionally balanced and it can feel like a never-ending battle to come up with tasty variety day in day out.
Thankfully dietitian and nutritionist Susie Burrell has put together five super-filling, delicious lunches that each come in at under $5 — because healthy meals can be budget friendly too.
From tuna and vegetables, hearty potatoes, egg-filled delights to options that will keep you cosy and satisfied in winter, these are the lunches you’ll want to add to your meal time rotation. Your wallet (and tastebuds) will be very grateful you did.
