Or inquisitive. Take your pick.
I generally see food as "breakfast", "lunch" or "supper" food and I don't like to mix my categories unless I'm super lazy.
So I never eat cereal for anything other than breakfast (unless there was food at a 9 am meeting and I had that instead of my cereal).
If I eat too many "lunch" meals which I actually define as "supper", I'll get bored with supper meals and that is not a good thing...
I typically bring a sandwich of some sort with a protein and veg, and then fruits and a yoghurt for my snacks.
Carb - always wholewheat bread, otherwise on a Monday, I may bring a roll if we have any left over from the weekend
Protein - tuna/ egg/ ham/ cheese (rarely, because then I have to bring a grater to work too)
Veg - usually tomato, sometimes cucumber, sometimes carrots
Favourite winter lunches:
- Garlic roll, my homemade soup (which is lentil and vegetable - always at least 1 P/ 2 V on Weighless)
- Toast, oodles of cottage cheese, Weigh-Less tomato and roasted pepper soup/ my own homemade soup
- Wholewheat toast, baked beans and soup
- Leftover pasta :)
Wholewheat toast with
- tuna mixed with onion, tomato and a smidge of mayonnaise (and a mint sweet for afterwards :))
- eggs (I either make an omelette with onions, or I "boil" the eggs in the microwave at work, and slice them with tomatoes)
- cottage cheese mixed with avo, and cucumber slices
I'm not the type of person (there are plenty, I've found) who can eat the same thing for lunch day in and day out. I'd go mental.'
And I'm soooo not a salad person. I need salads on my sandwich, not in place of :)
So, some ideas from the comments on Cup of Jo...
- one lady said she takes supper leftovers for lunch and the fact that she needs food for the leftovers is a great incentive to not overeat at supper. LOVE this idea (in theory) because there are only ever leftovers if I make pasta, and in winter I do take this in maybe twice a month.
- some people cook a lunch meal on the Sunday and eat the same thing Mon - Thurs...
In our office, some buy a salad from the trolley (pasta for the boys and greens for the girls), some pop to the mall to buy lunch, some bring leftovers and some bring a bag full of stuff to assemble lunch at work (me!).
What do you typically eat for lunch?
