  1. Toast the bread if desired.
  2. In a shallow dish add chickpeas, avocado, and mash them together with a fork.
  3. Add in the cilantro, green onion, tuna, lemon juice and zest, sea salt and pepper to taste, then stir until well combined.
  4. Spread about 1/3 cup of mixture onto each slice of toast, then cut in half + smash together nicely, and arrange them in glass containers as shown. In the remaining space add in 1/2 cup berries into each.
  5. Refrigerate for up to 3 days. Enjoy!

Greek Salad Lunch Box

  1. In 2 separate airtight containers or lunchboxes, add ingredients equally as shown.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
  3. I like to keep my pita bread separate until packing up to go (ready to eat), then I place it in the lunchbox - last minute. Enjoy!

Veggie Sushi lunchbox

  1. Place tortillas on a cutting board and spread the hummus over them equally.
  2. Top with bell peppers, green onions, carrots and avocado.
  3. Roll the tortilla tightly around the vegetables as shown, then slice crosswise into 1.5-inch slices.
  4. Arrange the veggie sushi into glass containers, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
  5. It's best to serve it within 24 hours, otherwise I find that the tortillas will get a bit too soggy. Enjoy!

  2. Drizzle with pesto sauce and season with sea salt and black pepper to your taste.
