What makes a great lunch?
Simplify your morning with lunch box hacks! Lunch box hacks are tricks to create fast, delicious and nutritious meals for your life on the go. If you need a packed lunch, a school lunch, or a work lunch, I have a wonderful resource that can help set you up for success. “Packed-lunch hacks and recipes to squeeze more nutrients into your day” is a helpful how-to book by thinker Becky Alexander and nutritionist Michelle Lake.
Creating a daily nutritious lunch can be easy to manage and fun. Think about a beautiful lunch at your desk filled with things like coconut rich immune boosting soup, roasted cauliflower, chickpea, feta and pomegranate salad, with home made quinoa and chilli crisps on the side. Can I get that right now? Pretty please?
I took one of their recipes and recreated it for you in two versions. The first, “D.I.Y. Instant Noodle Cups”, is a healthy and tasty version of the popular cup-a-noodle product. The second is the same recipe made up with low glycemic zucchini noodles, called “Diabetic Instant Noodle Cups” . I have added helpful nutritional information at the bottom of each recipe page.
“Packed” with smart ideas
“Packed” has great recipes, and short cut hacks to create your lunches quickly, which with my busy schedule I find to be a crucial part of maintaining this effort. The book is also thoughtful about the nutritional aspect of the recipes, and advises how to set up the shopping and kitchen to be successful. You don’t want to spend all of your waking hours making your lunches after all! The go to goal: d.i.y., yummy lunch. created efficiently at home, nutrient dense and satisfying for the soul.
Ideas for every types of eater
Many things, such as granola bars, crackers and bread loaves can be made ahead and frozen or stored. If you are vegan or vegetarian, please be aware that some of their recipes contain meat, but there is a huge selection of recipes that can be made vegan, so it is completely worth giving it a visit. I know you are going to enjoy this book, and find it useful and inspiring.
