I did it! I packed my own lunch to work for a whole month; well actually it’s been more than a month already! And I DID NOT slack! NOT. A. SINGLE. DAY. Hallelujah! In fact, I managed to inspire a few colleagues along the way and they started to pack their own lunches too. It was fun! We shared our food, we exchanged ideas and we became closer in the name of food. HA. More importantly, I noticed that my digestive system is a lot healthier and I am definitely looking a lot better after a month of eating from my own lunchbox. So today, let me share with you 20 yummy and nutritious lunchbox ideas and hopefully, you can be inspired to pack your own lunches to work too.
I absolutely love mushrooms and they are my regular lunch fix these days. I promise to show you the mushrooms in my beauty lunchbox series soon but first, these yummilicious portobello mushrooms! Meaty, tender and oh so succulent, they don’t just look good, they taste great! And today, I’ll show you the easiest way to prep these and get them into your mouth in 15 minutes! But be patient, before I show you how to make these, I’ll tell you why portobello mushrooms are a great source of plant protein good for our skin.
With the temperature turning up and the air quality becoming worse, I’ve restorted to lunching in on most days. But I got tired of buying my food so this week, I decided to pack my own lunchbox every single day! Besides eating healthier food, I can better protect my skin by staying away from the scorching sun. And it helps that I have good company because a few of my colleagues have the habit of lunching in too.
If you ask me what’s my favorite breakfast, I’ll tell you it’s jam on toast. Yes, I’m boring like that. But I’m leery that jam can be too sweet and so I’m selective too. Last year, I found St Dalfour’s fruit spread and between my son and me, we’ve consumed a number of bottles now. They’re made of real fruits and juice concentrate, and are absolutely delicious. The best thing? This vegan jam is low in glycemic index (GI) and that means it’s pretty safe for my skin.
