Stop paying for sandwiches, 10 ways to make your homemade lunch better

Stop paying for sandwiches, 10 ways to make your homemade lunch better
  • Try dry spices in your sandwich (like paprika, chilli, garlic powder)
  • Swap lettuce for spinach, rocket or similar. Add things like onions, garlic, celery, peppers, chillis, pickles, cheese, carrots etc into sandwich


  • Butter on your bread will help stop ‘soggy bread’
  • Toast the bread or buy a sandwich toaster


  • Wash lettuce but then make sure you dry it out properly (using one of these helps)
  • Learn to make them properly e.g. bread->meat->onions->sauce->lettuce->cheese->bread – this stops the soggy greens ruining the bread
  • Make a club sandwich (extra piece of bread between), make one of those a piece of toast


  • Make your lunch the night before (or at the very least prepare the ingredients ready the night before)
  • Get good at making your own noodle broth, kettle + spices + cut up veg (or even lettuce, peas, spring onions etc) + sauce/paste + noodles = easy and healthy lunch


  • Try Soup instead! Make tons of it on a Sunday evening/afternoon, freeze it in containers. Eat up at lunch and eat with bread or tortilla.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,500 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
