Turn to page 42 for a spread of brilliant items you can prep entirely on Sunday to mix and match for endless snacks and meals for the rest of the week. And never get stuck feeling guilty and sluggish after lunch again by making and taking the amazing and portable recipes that are gracing our cover on page 46.
