Work Day Lunches in 2 mins

You know how it is - you wake late, or wake on time but have something which delays = no time to pack a "real" lunch to take to work.

What do you do when you:

  • have 2 minutes at home to grab what you need
  • have a few minutes to prepare at work with a limited kitchen - microwave, kettle and toaster with limited implements

The following suggestions come from the Core boards.

If you have a suggestion, please email and I'll add it in

  • Soup
    Grab a can of vegie soup and a wholegrain roll or bread to warm up in microwave
  • Leftovers
    Grab last night's leftovers to warm up in microwave
  • Core brick
    When you cook, cook extra and freeze up
  • CousCous and Tuna (hot)
    Grab 1/3 cup couscous and put in a tub. Grab a small can of tuna in springwater and a bag of the steamfresh vegies. At work - add 1/3 cup boiling water to couscous, microwave vegies, drain tuna, mix up and eat
  • Tuna/Salmon sandwich
    Grab can of fish and 2 slices of bread (or equiv crispbread), and a tomato
  • Chick pea salad
    Open and drain a can of chick peas - throw into medium size container with sliced up salad vegies and sprinkle sliced olives on the top.
  • Banana hot/cold sandwich
    Grab 2 slices of bread and a banana. Mash/slice the banana onto the bread/toast or put in toastie / jaffle machine (if available)
