Vacation work was a great experience for me last week. My working hours were 8am to 5 pm. Thank God the clients location I was placed at is 15 mins away from my home. I’d wake up at 6am and leave at 740am. I’m blessed to have 3 younger siblings so one of them would wake up and pack my lunch as per my instructions. She really impressed me and she’s definitely getting a reward when I get paid.
The above meal consisted of Caulirice ,stewed sausage and an avocado half. This was a basic meal made from dinner leftovers . The bad thing about this packed lunch is that by lunchtime my avocado had turned brown. How do you keep your avocado in the lunch box fresh? I even tried a zip lock bag but the effect was the same as the lunchbox packaging. Do not forget to remove the avocado from the box when reheating otherwise you’ll have cooked avo and who eats cooked fruit ? 🤣 Yes avocado is fruit👌😂😬
I don’t understand when people say they don’t have time to make lunch for work. This lunch was packed Thursday night as I dished out dinner. I just took it from the fridge in the morning. The lunch consisted of leftovers i.e. Grilled Chicken and steamed vegetables. I added the avocado half in the morning.
Other simple lunch box ideas and snacks you can try are :
- meat and vegetables from dinner
- Heba pap bread in-a-mug toasted cheese sandwich
- boiled eggs
- plain yoghurt and carb clever granola
- Low carb fruit
- tuna salad
- Baked sweet potato wedges
- zoodles and mince meat
What do you carry for lunch at work?
