Healthy lunches that can be made in under 10 minutes


Eating healthy on the go has become easier with cafes, restaurants and shops providing healthier alternatives but it can get quite costly if you do this most days of the week. I know the last thing you probably want to do after a long hard day is to find healthy recipes and spend lots of time making it, so we got @nuttyfoodiefitness to give our PureGym Insiders @emilypuregym and @kaypuregym and fit foodie @macro_joe  a fun challenge to make a healthy meal in under 10 minutes! 

How did they get along? Watch in the video below!
