Working 9-5… Lunchtime!

So I work 9 – 5.30, Monday to Friday… I am on my lunch from 1pm – 2pm and I am bored of eating wraps, salad and tuna pasta. The only facility we have in the kitchen is a kettle so I am unable to heat food up/cook anything. I also don’t help matter by being a fussy eater… Basically I need some help/ideas to what I can prepare at home and bring to work to have on my lunch that is relatively healthy? All suggestions welcome whether it be another salad flavour or wrap filler… or if you know of any books that could help?

Thanks in advance.

  1. Funny, I’m having the same problem coming up with foods that interest me lately. I spent all last year on a steady diet of all things chicken and I’m trying to branch out. These are some of the things I have for lunch: Low fat Greek yogurt with fresh fruit (1/4 cup) and 1/4 cup almonds with a side of raw carrots and hummus; Large tossed salad with romaine, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, turkey, carrots, and low fat dressing; Tuna with 1/2 teaspoon lite mayo, 1/4 tsp Dijon mustard, a bit of celery & onion, a side of raw carrots, and a serving size of wheat thin crackers; 140 cal. chicken breast chopped into bite sized pieces, a side of celery with two tablespoons of PB2 (a peanut butter that most of the fat has been removed from–you add water to it). I rotate these throughout the week. I eat 5-6 small (100-300 calorie) meals per day. I have breakfast, a mid-morning snack, lunch, an afternoon snack, dinner, and then a small night time snack. I eat every 3 hours. (My snacks are usually Greek yogurt or a Pure Protein shake). Hope these suggestions help! 🙂
