Asparagus packs a mean green power punch. It is super low in calories, low in sodium, a good source of fibre and vitamin B6.

For our main compartment we combine the delicious flavours of ricotta cheese, avocados and asparagus marinated with a touch of pesto.

Asparagus is such a versatile dish so make a lovely asparagus carbonara the previous night and steam a couple of extra asparagus to add to the lunch box.

Asparagus salad
Boil water in a pot, place asparagus in boiling water and take off the heat. Let it stand for 5 min, drain and let it cool. Cut avocado in pieces, arrange asparagus on plate and place avo on top. Garnish with ricotta cheese, and a tablespoon of pesto. Flavour with salt and pepper.

Sweet treat
Add a couple of these old-time favourite crunchy cookies for a sweet-tooth fix!
