This awesome Tuna Mayo Sandwich is an ideal lunchbox addition for anyone with a hectic work schedule as it’s super quick to make and just about as healthy as they come.

Tuna and spinach is a great combo too! Spinach a great alternative to simple lettuce leaves as it’s an awesome superfood, said to provide a number of health benefits such as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, supporting bone health and even helping to combat cancer.
