10 sarmies to make weekday lunches more exciting

The bigger the sarmie, the better!

05 Jul 2016

Office lunches have often fallen to the humble sandwich, for obvious reasons. The sandwich can be filled with just about anything and they are generally a quick and easy, on-the-go meal.

Did you know the sandwich is named after John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich which is a town in South-East England. The story goes that he would order two slices of bread with cold meats stacked between them, and others began to order 'the same as Sandwich'. Although this wasn't the first time a variety of sandwich was made, the name certainly stuck.

There's serious value in a well executed sandwich due to its versatility and potential nourishment (we say potential because it all depends on what you put inside, and the bread you choose).

Here is a list of lunch ideas that will have your colleagues staring wide-eyed at your lunchbox.

1. The power sandwich
2. The superfood sandwich
3. The fried Caprese sandwich
4. Vegetarian club sandwich
