No More Soggy Lunch Boxes

Updated: Apr 10, 2020

Couscous and quinoa are excellent lunchbox alternatives and a far cry from the soggy sandwich!

They’re not only healthy, flavourful and filling, but making a nutrient-packed salad with either ingredient is a cinch and kids will love the mix of bright colours, while completely missing the fact that they are having their veggies. Quinoa is a gluten-free protein, making it the perfect lean muscle building food.

Save time by making a batch on the weekend, keeping it in the fridge and quickly popping in some fresh ingredients on a weekday morning for the ultimate lunchbox in minutes.

Try these recipes fom Tipiak, a leading quality gourmet style French food company that now offers a range of fragrant couscous and quinoa options that taste as delicious cold as they do hot.
