Guys, I’m not a food photographer!
But I wanted to give you guys a peak into what I eat for lunch. Lunch can be hard, sometimes. It has to be something I can prep and pack for work and I often get stuck in a rut. Sandwiches anyone?? Plus at my job, I eat at my desk a lot. (you’ll notice!) So here’s what I’ve packed for myself this week.
The top picture is one of my favorite salads. It’s just plain lettuce, carrot matchsticks, cucumber, green onion, peas and tuna (I used the Ranch Starkist packet) and dressing is Olive Garden Light. (I used to add shredded cheddar but I’m trying to eat less dairy now.) I don’t think this salad sounds very exciting but I really do like it!
On the left is my half eaten lunch before I thought to snap a pic. Very orange. I grabbed the leftover sweet potatoes from my fam’s Christmas dinner (thanks mom!) and dumped some bbq chicken from the crockpot on top with a side of carrots.
Middle: the other half of the sweet potato (each was about 3-4 oz) topped with ground turkey cooked with taco seasoning, salsa and avocado.
And right was meal prepped a couple weeks ago, I just pulled out of the freezer and let it defrost in the work fridge. Salmon with a homemade teriyaki ginger marinade, jasmine rice and roasted green beans.
There you go! Meal prep helps a ton or else I go with really simple meals I can literally throw together in a bowl. haha.
What are your favorite brown bag lunches??
