Your favourite things to pack for lunch
I'm looking for some ideas to pack for lunch. I want to avoid food fatigue.
What do you like to pack for lunch?
Leftovers, but I try not to pack them the day after I have them for dinner. Or I'll change it up - slice my steak or flake my salmon over a salad, for instance, so it's not *really* the same meal (bonus - tastes good cold!).
Tuna salad with org celery sticks
Olives and org cheese
Pork loin slices with broc/cauliflower
Thin strips beef tip steak with side of mixed greens, sliced onion & bell pepper w/ oil & vinegar
Any leftover chicken piece and apple w/ walnut butter
Salmon and spinach salad with cherry tomatoes
Boiled eggs and bacon strips or sausage patty
Cold cuts and slices of cheese (my favourite being turkey and provologne or gouda), with a little bit of mustard. Wrap the meat in the cheese, with the mustard (or whatever) where ever you want it.
I don't eat lunch 98% of the time, never have as an adult. Usually don't eat breakfast either... but sometimes I'll take pepperoncinis to work.
It's fun to shop for containers to carry lunch in. My DH wants to eat primal now so I pack really healthy lunches for him instead of sandwiches, chips and candy bars plus soda. I found a nice container with double dishes, that way he can take out one and zap in the microwave and have salad greens or fruit in the other. He drinks filtered water and green tea with lime and stevia and he likes it as much as Pepsi now. He keeps a bag of macadamia nuts and goji berries in his desk and I usually send a banana or gala apple.
A .45 when in Chicago. Just kidding. Often it's sauteed veggies with some sort of protein to go with-quick zap and I'm eating.
I literally lol'd from that haha.
