    Suggestions for cold work lunches

    Shop Now
    Hi All,
    I need some help mixing up my work lunches a little bit. Currently I have been doing lettuce wraps with chicken, peppers, and onions. It is good, but I would like something to mix in every other week or so.

    Here is my criteria...
    - Must have protein
    - Doesn't need to be heated (hate microwaves)
    - Can make it ahead of time on Monday and have it be good till Friday

    Open to any and all suggestions. No allergies and I like pretty much everything.

    Thanks in advance!

    Boiled eggs, Fruit, Nuts, Cheese, Jerky.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Make a pot roast, eat the leftovers. Thin sliced, cold, salted beef is awesome. You could then add some good hot sauce to the (cooked) veggies and eat those cold too.

    My go to lunch is a couple of boiled eggs, raw carrot sticks, a couple of chunks of cheese, maybe some ham or salami and an apple. I like to slice it all up at work and eat it like a tasting platter. Can change it around depending on what you have in the fridge at the time (celery sticks or an orange or a handful of olives etc), almost no prep at all at home and just a few minutes at work.

    My cold lunch options lately have been the following:
    - Big Ass Salad: Lettuce, Carrot, Celery, Cucumber, Tomato, Capsicum, Cheese (leave that out if your not that way inclined), Boiled Egg, Bacon, and either cold Roast Chicken, or ham.
    - Egg & Vege Frittata thingy - sorry don't have the full recipe because the wife made if and I haven't the faintest clue, she tells me there are like 7 veges in it.

    But of late I have been digging hot lunch options, I have been doing up nice stir fry veges on the sandwich press at work - much to my workmates jealousy!

    Cheers and happy eating!

    I make a big frittata and cut it into wedges - it lasts a few days and tastes great cold.

    Tuna in water! Get rid of the water and put on a splash of lime juice. Eat some raw broccoli beside and perhaps a glass of cold Coke Zero…

    Nice big salad with a can of salmon or other canned fish, guacamole with some hard boiled eggs, the guacamole is not going to last the week but only takes a few minutes to put together in the morn.
