What I packed for lunch today.. may not seem interesting but it is essential!
I work from 3am to 9pm 2 days a week (I work a 5 day week but these two are my longest days) and thus require a packed lunch to get me through till home time.
So in the grand scheme of it, what I have packed might seem like nothing as it has to cover all 3 of my meals, but I quickly make up for the lack of eating on my less busy days!
In my lunch box:
– a cheese sandwich on gluten free seeded bread
– a protein cereal bar
– herb and garlic crackers
– a green tea with lemon and ginger tea bag
– a whole bell pepper
– roasted unsalted almonds
As well as what’s in my box I will usually have a bottle of water, a sweet treat of some kind and several cups of normal tea to tide my over! I sometimes also opt for a bag of microwave rice on days where I pack a sandwich over a cooked meal (usually leftovers) as it’s easy to store in my bag and quick to eat. As plain and simple a sandwich never fills me up like a proper cooked meal, so I need the extra!
