So if you're having problems with long days away from home, first just stop eating so damn often and then apply some IF.
Unfortunately, we can't skip lunch everyday. I have 2 criteria for a good packed paleo lunch;
- Easy to eat, 1 piece of cutlery max.
- When you're done eating, it shouldn't still take up space.
And that's where the shish kabob comes in- all your protein and veggies on one stick. No cutlery required for eating and as an added bonus, people will just think you're finishing leftovers instead of thinking you're a crazy healthfreak ;) Wrap it in some tin foil, et voila.
Ofcourse that's not nearly enough to fill you up. Another no-tupperware required option is the brown bag 'o veggies. As you can see in the photo below, I just cut up anything that's lying around. A few personal favorites though; bell pepper+pak choi stems, carrots+chinese cabbage and fennel+radish. (I passionately hate celery sticks.)
When you've finished, you can throw away the tin foil, but I always save the brown bag for later use in some desperate attempt to make up for my not so very environment friendly tinfoil use.
This lunch combo allows for a lot of variation. I'm usually a bit boring with my shish kabob, but I might make up something especially tasty and post it here later.
Incase you can't tell from the photo, this particular one was made with zucchini, bell pepper (both raw) and grilled chicken.
*I thought about adding some links, but I can't pick. So just google it if you're not already familiar with IF. Trust me, it's worth your time.
