I need food now. A guide for the starving Londoner…

No time to cook?

No time to queue?

Barely time to eat, but don’t want to end up eating a rubbish boring sandwich full of mayonnaise and thick cheese? (I still don’t get why someone would mix mayonnaise and cheese…)

This is my Top 3 favourite mega quick lunch break food that you can find anywhere in London.

1-Halloumi Grilled Wrap from Leon

What is it? Cauliflower, Sweet Potato, Aslan Spices, Coconut Milk, Coriander, Quinoa rice mix, toasted almonds.

Verdict: It is tasty, it is filling, it is rich in fibre. The mixture of coconut milk, quinoa, curry and toasted almonds is very interesting and successful.

Keep away if…You hate curry or spices.

The Plus: Hot cooked food, you get your veggies, you get your fibre and it is different.

Heavy? It is filling and not the lightest.

Time it takes to buy: 31.5 seconds.

 

3-Pod’s avocado and mozzarella sandwich

Have you ever tried fresh mozzarella with avocado before? I have never tried it before eating this sandwich – but my life changed after that.

Avocado + Fresh Mozarella + Tomato = The magic combination.

Avocado + Fresh Mozarella + Tomato = The magic combination. Picture from Pod.

What is it? SUPER 7 baguette, made with 7 different grains and 5 seeds including flaxseed, sunflower, sesame, millet and poppy seeds. Mozzarella. Sun-dried tomato. Avocado.

Verdict: The bread is fresh and super healthy. The fresh mozzarella + tomato + avocado combination is so simple yet really tasty.

The Plus: Even if you are not too adventurous, you will love it. You can also pretend it is healthy (it IS healthy! No? ) because there is avocado and fresh seeded bread.

Heavy? Not the heaviest. If your stomach loves mozzarella, it will LOVE this one.

Time it takes to buy: 32 seconds.
