Juggling work, life, and eating right is tough. Use these lunch hacks to save time.
Eat at your desk. Eat on the move. Eat like a boss!
Compartments make filling bento boxes super easy. Fill yours with cooked rice, slices of cooked chicken or beef, and the rest with veg.
For an authentic experience, eat with chopsticks. Ok. A fork will do.
Make life easy. Just grab one thing as you race out of the door, and make it a jar of goodness. Overnight oats can be made by soaking porridge oats, milk, honey and a banana and leaving, yep, overnight!
Alternatively, stack up all your favourite salad ingredients. Grate carrot add a layer of nuts, tomatoes, cooked pasta, whatever else takes your fancy.
Just grab and go.
Instant pot noodle? Yes please!
Break up glass noodles and put in a flip-top jar. Add a stock cube and some sliced veg.
When you get to work, simply add hot water.
Oh – it might need a good stir!
Sound too simple? Boiled eggs pack a real protein punch and are great to eat on the go. Provided there’s a bin nearby for the shells…
If you’re trying extra hard to eat healthy, why not switch out bread for salad leaves? Sound weird? It’s not as strange as you think.
Use large green leaves in place of a wrap and fill with your favourite sandwich filling.
Boom. Instant vit C!
Yes to hard-boiled eggs! They are one of my staples to take out or snack on at home. If you pre-peel them all at the same time you can just grab and go!
Grated carrot and nuts and pasta....hmmmm....interesting combo which I am going to have to give a go now!
I would suggest making a huge pot of salad at the start of the week, like quino or buckwheat and add anny extras you like, and just take that in each day.
My easiest and favourite lunch is hummus, pitta bread and vegetable sticks. SImple, cheap and healthy. A hard boiled egg is a good idea too!
no bin for egg shells? No problem - take them home in the lunch container and bin there. They aren't exactly heavy!
