Other lunch ideas and tips

There are now salmon and tuna pouches which are flavoured they are available at the supermarket. They are very tasty with salad or Steamfresh vegetables and rice.
Sandwiches or wraps on wholegrain bread (wheat or gluten free). Ensure there is more salad than meat or bread and do not use butter or spreads. Low fat mayonnaise is ok.

Any salad concoction you can think of:
To boost flavour, add arugula, watercress, radicchio, fennel, sprouts to salad greens
Add herbs such as basil, rosemary, coriander, mint or oregano
Use tomatoes, cucumbers, capsicum, mushrooms, green beans, sugar snap and snow peas, celery, grated carrot or beetroot
Add roasted vegetables such as capsicum, beetroot, pumpkin, sweet potato, zucchini, and tomato
Add beans such as kidney, chick peas, lima beans etc
Add grains such as rice, barley, and cous cous
Add nuts, such as walnuts, almonds, peanuts, cashews
Add seeds such as pumpkin, sunflower, sesame seeds, pine nuts etc
Add cheese, olives or eggs
Add apricots, oranges, apples, pears, grapefruit, and raisins
Add meat and seafood
Use garlic, ginger, soy sauce, olive oil, lemon juice or tahini for dressings

Sushi or rice paper rolls (no fried ingredients in the sushi)
