Parents Eat Lunch, Too!

Sometimes I get busy. Super crazy busy. And when that happens I will often just grab the easiest thing for lunch ~ usually fast food. Yick. So very not good for you. The Dude does the same, and we are working on breaking that bad habit. A big help is making sure that we pack a lunch for ourselves when we know we'll be out all day. 

Here are a few of the lunches I packed up for the Dude to take to work this week...

This one is fried rice with grilled prawns, a mix of blackberries and blueberries, and a couple of Girl Scout cookies.

Leftover grilled lemon prawns go very nicely on a bed of fried rice with egg and veggies.

Fresh berries... YUM!

This one is a wrap with blueberries, blackberries, a mandarin orange, and a couple of mini fruit struedel bites.

The wrap is made with pastrami and havarti cheese, with lettuce, mushrooms, bell peppers, and a little bit of Caeser dressing rolled up in a jalapeno cheddar tortilla. Dude said it was delicious!

Another leftovers lunch. This one is baked salmon and broccoli over rice, with a pair of Girl Scout cookies, some clementine segments, and a sliced kiwi.

The little fish bottle was perfect for holding soy sauce to sprinkle over the rice. And Easy Lunchboxes are perfect for packing a full meal, even one that needs to be warmed!

What are your favorite meals to pack for a grown-up lunch?

  1. That's what I love about those type of boxes, being able to pack a bunch of lunches all at once and stacking them up in the fridge. I have no excuse on the way out the door to work, I grab a lunch and go.

    My adult lunches don't look as fun as yours do, but they usually include hummus and carrots, grapes, crackers and cheese.

    Love your blog, thanks for posting!

    1. Mmm, I love hummus. And cheese. And yes, the grab-and-go is SO convenient! Especially when you can just assemble the lunches while packing away leftovers at night ~ two birds, one stone!
