Our last option for your office tupperware meal couldn't be anything other than a delicious salad, a practical and delicious recipe that you can have ready in less than 5 minutes.
What we love most about salads is that you can use the ingredients you like the most, and they'll always result in an exquisite mix of flavors. But what's better than having ham among them?
Want a tip? If you want to add a crunchy touch to this recipe, you can microwave the serrano ham for 1 minute on high power. This will dehydrate the ham, making it totally crispy. You can also add some cheese for a creamy touch. Delicious!
Back to School
But there's someone else who returns to routine in September, none other than the little ones at home.
Sandwiches are always a good option for enjoying a good break and replenishing energy to continue the day. The ham sandwich is a favorite of all children, especially if you add a piece of brie cheese; it's a classic combination that can't be more ideal for making your snack or breakfast truly delicious and appetizing.
You can also complete their snack or breakfast with a banana shake, a sweet and nutritious option that's also healthy.
