Busy gals guide to taking your lunch

July 2, 2012

Eating lunch at workI’m often asked what do I take for lunch when I’m working with clients.  My clients can tell you I do practice what I preach about healthy eating and avoiding food additives!

If you’re a gal on the go too, you might like some of these ideas too!

  • Fresh fruit – I pre-peel my mandarins and pop them into a container.
  • I’ll add chopped fruit too if I have time in the morning (e.g. sliced kiwi fruit, rockmelon)
  • whole fruit (e.g. Apple)
  • Vegetables (carrot, celery, zucchini, cucumber) in slices/sticks
  • trail mix – organic sulphate free dried fruit and nut packs (raisins, currants, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds)
  • cheese sticks/cubes/slices
  • Cheese and crackers (or rice cakes/corn cakes)
  • Small dinner rolls with tomato and cheese
  • Home made savoury cheese and vegetable muffins
  • Home made sweet muffins
  • If possible – Sandwich with cheese and salad (egg)
  • Chopped Sushi

I keep everything cold with a freezer brick.

Drop me a line and share any other ideas you have?

These are great ideas. I like to make jellys in little reusable containers and pop a chopped piece of fruit or piece of tinned fruit in them but you need to remember to pack a spoon.

Hi Kathleen

Thanks for your sharing your busy gal lunch idea too. That’s a great way to get in that extra fruit! You’re totally right about the spoon… I would keep a packet of disposable forks in my “food draw” just in case.

Thanks again for sharing your great idea
Louise :)
