-Wholesome and Healthy salads like tabouleh
-Indulgent and Decadent Dining like grilled halloumi, vegetable and avocado couscous
-Sandwiches for when you are chained to your desk like guacamole and tomato salsa on rye
-Store-cupboard snacks like spicy lentil and coconut soup
-Sweet treats to bribe colleagues like salted caramel brownies
