Good morning and happy Friday to you! I hope you have had a fabulous and full week!
Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite quick, easy healthy, go-to work week lunches. I know I have said this before, but I am so not a lunch person. Don’t get me wrong; I am always starving and more than willing to eat, but I hate stopping mid-day to either go out and find myself something to eat or whip something up in the kitchen. I’d much rather just have a bowl of popcorn, protein bar, or a smoothie and call it lunch. But let’s be real, the popcorn and protein bar isn’t a longterm good idea! Over the past few weeks, I have been experimenting with my lunches. I am on the go quite often, and I don’t love stopping to find myself something to eat either so I have come up with my very own bento box solution. On Sundays or early Monday morning, I cook/wash/separate my food for the week–that way if I have to run out for a press check at 11:00 and know I will be starrrrving at 12:00, I have a pre-made lunch in my fridge ready to go! I am seriously loving this; it’s taken my irritation towards the lunch hour and changed it! Also, I’ve been switching out the items for variety, but for the most part it is staying the same, i.e. veggie ( edamame / carrots and hummus / broccoli), protein (grilled chicken / hard boiled eggs / nuts), fruit, complex carb (ezekiel bread)… YUM
P.S. I got my nifty bento box containers here, and I L-O-V-E them!
