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?
