Bulgur-Quinoa Salad to go

I need prepared things that I can take with me to the office for having a good lunch without need for difficult preparations.. so really things "TO GO". Therefore I often prepare different meals on one day and then store them for the next days in my fridge. This way I have inly to choose in the mornig which lunch I would like today. One of those easy to prepare and to take away things is this salad. I made it this time with a mix of bulgur and quinoa and added some sweet potatoe and avocado. Of course one can do ist also with quinoa or bulgur alone as well as you can add quite every vegetable as for example broccoli or cauliflower or....
You need (for 2 servings):

125 g bulgur and quinoa (about 80 g bulgur and the rest quinoa)
300 ml water
1/2 avocado
1 sweet potatoe
1/2 tsp. sugar
30 g peeled almonds
1 lemon
Olive oil, salt and pepper
Some mint leaves

To prepare:
1. Add some salt to the water and bring it to boil together with bulgur and quinoa.
2. Peel the sweet potatoe and cut into medium sized cubes as well as the avocado.
 3. Mix the potatoe with a little bit of oil, add some salt, pepper and sugar.
4. In an oven proofed form bake the potatoe in the to 180 C preheated oven for about 30 minutes (until soft).
5. Meanwhile roast the almonds in a hot pan without any oil. Then roughly cut them.
6. Mix together the juice from the lemon with oil, season with salt and pepper.
7. When bulgur and quinoa are cooked (takes about 15 minutes), drain and put in a bowl.
8. Mix together bulgur, quinoa, avocado and potatoe. Pour the lemon dressing over and carefully mix everything.
9. Sprinkle some mint leaves and the almonds on top of your salad. Now or you eat it right now or you put it in some glasses to Take Away within the next days.
