Lunch At Your Desk: Last Minute Peanut Butter and Apple Slices Sandwich


Ok peeps, if you’re following this series via the instagram hashtag #lunchatyourdesk you could be forgiven for thinking that all my lunches now are magically hearty and healthy salads and gourmet sandwiches. Hah! Its all smoke and mirrors! Well, not quite. I have been quite proud of having brought at least a semblance of a healthy lunch to work every day this term (except for the one day that I just couldn’t get my act together and had to run down the street for takeaway. It was awful.). But I have definitely taken some shortcuts. The biggest one being this kinda healthy but also kinda not but definitely unconventional sandwich.


I love apples and generally pack one for recess or lunch most days each week. When I was under the pump and the cupboards were bare of ingredients for a decent sandwich, I thought ‘screw it’ and packed a couple of slices of bread to see where the day would take me.


It took me to a delicious place of sweet apple slices, salty peanut butter and soft, white bread. I know it probably seems weird but if you’re a fan of the sweet/salty combo and you’re pressed for time one day, just go with it. The result is a sandwich of contrasting textures with the soft bread and juicy and crispy apple slices. I had a tangelo too which are in season at the moment and beautifully sweet and juicy (and super easy to peel too!). So, although this one was a bit of a weird lunch at your desk, it did the trick!

Whats the weirdest sandwich combination you’ve had at work or in life in general?
