Packed lunches don't really have the best rep, do they? Limp salad and soggy sandwiches only have so much appeal...

But it doesn't have to be this way! 

Behold, the new era of microwavable lunches that are so, so much better than you'd think...

1. Quiche in a mug

The quickest, easiest, cheapest and best thing you can make in a microwave. Fact.

Also it's potentially the best way to start your office day. Full recipe here.

2. Jacket sweet potatoes with tuna

Substitute normal potatoes with a sweet potato for a lighter bite. This dish is also super easy, efficient and cheap. Top with a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce and you've got restaurant style goodness, without the price tag.
