    I take a salad to work. At first I thought it would be a real pain in the bum, but actually it does not take long and it's so worth it to help feel in control of what food you're going to be eating.

    In one medium sandwich box I put lettuce, onion, pepper and sweetcorn. In a smaller sandwich box I put what I'm having to make the greenery more exciting so either ham, babybel light, tuna, salmon, etc. Then in a little pot I put a dressing like sweet chilli sauce, balsamic vinegar or extra light philidelphia.

    I put it all in a cool bag with a little ice pack to keep it fresh till lunch time.

    For snacks I take a packet of quavers or snack-a-jacks.

    I've not tried making it the night before, but I'm sure it would be fine in the fridge over night.
