What’s in my lunch box?

Category > Food

As a continuation to my last food journal post, I wanted to share a regular meal that I pack each evening for the following work day. I wasn’t kidding when I say that I always prepare meals ahead of time and have no shame in carrying a little lunch bag through the office building (even though my colleagues still tease me about it).

8:00 am – Arrived to work (had quinoa flakes with a protein shake for breakfast and of course my VegeGreens)
10:30 am – Apple with the carrots
1:00 pm – Tuna w/ potato and steamed the broccoli (note: all my tupperware I use is glass, especially the ones I warm up in the microwave)
3:30 pm – Protein shake w/ water and Oatmeal
4:30 pm – Home Time!!

This took me a total of about 6 minutes to wash and prepare. I felt great the whole day – no heavy meals from the fast food places. On top of it, I likely save about $20/day by making my lunches as opposed to buying them at the food courts downtown.

What was in your lunch box today? Thanks for reading and I hope everyone has an amazing weekend! Be sure to check back in as I’ll be posting one of my favourite ab workouts – I am still feeling it TWO days later, so you won’t want to miss it :)

I admit I have not been on this blog in a long time it was joy to find it again. It is this important topic and ignored by so many even professionals ! I thank you for leaving people more aware of these issues. Just great stuff per usual !

Hi,

What type of protein shakes do you drink?  I'm having a hard time finding one that tastes good and is also gluten-free.  Thanks!

Hi Maja, congrats on your new blog, I came across it through Veronika's and although just found today it all looks very good! Quick question, where do you get your tupperware from? Love them but I am from London so I have a feeling I might not be able to get them! :(

Keep up the good work ;)

Saw your Motivation Monday post on Veronika's blog, and I absolutely love your blog! I was wondering if you had any advice about foods that aren't as healthy/good for you as people think. I can't think of any examples at the moment, but I feel as though that's something that does happen. I'll definitely be continuing to read your blog! The layout is so cute and easy to use.

Hi, I'm a new reader from Veronika's blog!  Just want to let you know that I'm excited to be a new reader and please keep the lunch ideas coming.  I recently stopped packing frozen dinners for lunch (so bad, I know!) and have started packing salads so I'm in need of any new ideas.  Thanks!  BTW, your abs are killer!  ;)

Hi this may seem like a silly question but do you cook the oatmeal or do you eat it dry? I really do not like oatmeal but because it is so healthy i'm trying to find new ways to make it.
