For healthy, organic and nutritious options for your work lunch, without even leaving the office, check out Yummbox – the newest addition to the Brisbane lunch rush.

Brisbane resident, Sheldon Hikaiti launched Yummbox as an easy option for CBD workers looking for healthy alternatives during the working week.

–       Raw vegetable salad with a chickpea, avocado and herb salad
–       Sweet pumpkin with grilled vegetables and hommus
–       Pineapple curry with a brown rice and lentil salad, and coconut sambol
–       Minty spinach, chickpea and kale salad with a stone fruit salsa
–       Exotic chickpea and eggplant salad and guacamole

Sheldon is a qualified chef and student of Nutrition at the Australasian College of Natural Therapies. While studying, she was keen create a local brand with a philosophy of sharing good fast food.

As I got further into my studies at ACNT, I realised that there were so many people who were passionate about health, but weren’t sure how to make meals that were nutritionally beneficial and delicious,” says Sheldon.

“In addition, finding the time to pack a nutritious lunch before work can be difficult, let alone eating well everyday!”

So Yummbox was born, to make it convenient for people across Brisbane to eat well while on the run.

Yummbox currently delivers to Brisbane CBD, Fortitude Valley & Newstead, Milton, South Brisbane, New Farm and Red Hill.
