  • Bringing food to work - need help!

    Hey guys. So I've been primal for the last six months and have a bit of a problem.
    I have a one hour drive to my workplace and I usually bring all kinds of fruits
    Work's dining room is horrible, horrible - bad food.

    I don't think I want to nuke my food. I don't feel comfortable with microwaving..
    Yet I want to eat REAL food, you know - meat and stuff, during the day.
    Plus I'm eating a lot of fruits. I don't have weight to lose but I worry about inflammation.

    Any suggestions?

    Buy a dehydrator and make dried-meat -- biltong -- to take with you?

    Then there are always cans of fish -- say, red salmon or sardines in olive oil.

      I have one of these. It works great. Keeps everything really hot.

      I also have one of these. Doesn't keep things as hot. But you can take lots of separated things and have some hot and some cold (to some extent).

        I take a big green salad loaded with tomato, cucumbers, peppers, olives...basically whatever is to hand. Add some add some cheese and/or meat and i am good to go. I just oil and vinegar before I eat.
        EASY!
        Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

          I don't like the taste of meat that has been in the microwave so usually I bring my meat in some type of sauce, broth or curry. Then I microwave the sauce and the veggies until the are hot and put them over the meat and wrap it up for a few minutes until it gets warm. I don't keep it in the fridge beforehand so it is not super cold.

          I like the thermos idea. Heat it in the morning and you are still good to go.

            That's a great idea. Do you use it daily?

              Grow a pair and nuke it.

              Not a big deal.

                Chicken wings are great at room temperature. Also, lox.

                  This paleo blog has a "lunchbox" feature. The blogger posts what she packs for her pre-schooler and sometimes her husband for lunch. Although a lot of it is kid oriented - there are some really creative ideas here that generally don't require nuking. I would really recommend looking at all the "lunchboxes" on the site.

                  Also... just eat leftovers cold. No big deal.
