Pack a Plant-Based Lunch

It’s the time of year which most people dread – the end of summer – when temperatures slowly start to drop, the holiday you’ve been looking forward to all year has been and gone, and the numerous amount of BBQs you’ve attended have left the waistline of your jeans feeling just a little bit tighter. But there’s something fresh about September; we’re so conditioned from our school days, that the ‘back to school’ period seems to affect everyone, whether you have children or not. And best of all: it’s peak packed lunch season!

When it comes to the perfect packed lunch it’s all about balance; whether it’s for the kids or for you, standards are high – there’s nothing worse than a lacklustre lunch and the following bouts of food envy aimed at each and every one of your colleagues. The ideal lunch needs to satisfy all your midday cravings, boost your energy levels, and still be packed full of healthy, nutritious ingredients.

But it’s not all about lunch time. As hard as we try to avoid them, snacks are often a necessary (and healthy!) addition to the day. As long as you’re preparing the right kind of snacks – and ensure you steer clear of the office biscuit collection – then you can enjoy scrumptious snippets of plant-based food whenever you fancy. In fact, the British Nutrition Foundation stated that, when following a healthy 2,000-2,500 calorie diet, drinks and snacks can account for 20 per cent of your daily energy intake and are therefore a key part of a healthy diet.

About PlantBased

This month’s issue is all about embracing the new term; sure it’s not January, so we can’t coin any pun-tastic New Year’s resolutions, but there’s never a bad time of year to make a change; whether that’s reinventing yourself, your diet or even just adopting a more positive outlook on life. September in itself brings with it a feeling of freshness; it marks the changing of season – the start of a sunny summer turning into a mild, golden autumn – while children of all ages will be heading back to school for the start of the academic year. And food wise: it’s all about lunch! We’ll be looking at the most scrumptious, yet simple recipes for your lunchbox, that’ll mean – whether it’s for school or work – you’ll be looking forward to lunch every day. Turn to page 34 for oodles of inspiration for your midday meal. Then we’ll be reinventing the wheel – well, ok, the cauliflower – with some inventive new takes on traditional recipes using this uniquely nutritious vegetable. And for the perfect healthy balance, we’re giving you a selection of tempting cheat-day meals, including my favourite mint choc-chip sandwich cookies (page 53), followed by our biggest health and fitness feature to date. See page 80, for fitness expert Maxim Leach’s top tips and tricks on HIIT workouts. And though most of our summer holidays will have been and gone, there’s no time like the present to start booking the next one! Turn to page 58 where we’ll guide you through the beautiful Comoros and explore its exciting vegan delicacies. For now, just grab an apron and get experimenting!
