  • We propose the perfect menu to eat at the office these summer days

Elaborate meals to take to the office It can become a tedious task that often ends with our daily menu ideas. With the arrival of summer, in addition, salads and cold dishes take center stage, something that can get boring if the best combinations are unknown.

Thus, we propose five varied, healthy and perfect dishes to put in the lunch box.

1. Rice salad

It is one of the perfect dishes for the summer season and very simple to prepare. With rice (whole grain healthier) and your favorite vegetables you can prepare a perfect lunch menu. The most common ingredients: tuna, peas, carrot, corn, apple... although you can always innovate something else by adding broccoli, bean sprouts, red fruits, your favorite spices… You just have to cook the rice with a little garlic and salt (twice as much water as rice), let cool and add the rest of the ingredients. If you use broccoli, you can cook it with the rice. As a dressing I like a lot teaspoon of mustard with a little honey and olive oil.


2. Vegetable stew

It is one of the most traditional recipes of Spanish food and perfect to take to the office and be reheated. If you don’t want to heat your head, even they sell them already prepared to boil them or microwave them, and that’s it. Another option is take advantage of the leftovers of some vegetables that you have left from the day before. You just have to sauté them with a little bacon or turkey, ham, turkey or chicken and straight to the tupperware.


3. Pea salad with tomatoes and hard-boiled egg

Peas are a food that it stays perfect and fresh even if it was cooked the day before and it is a perfect idea to incorporate legumes into the diet if chickpeas (also perfect for making salads) do not convince you. You can buy the peas already cooked or buy them fresh and cook them and then add some cherry tomatoes and a hard-boiled egg. With the dressing that you like the most, it will be a perfect dish for weekdays.
