If you work from home like I do - maybe, sometimes, you don't really fix yourself a real lunch. Maybe you just munch a bit here and there - like grab an apple, eat a bagel. Maybe you eat standing up or don't even use a plate. Ok- I have bad eating habits even though I eat healthy, the fact that I don't fix a real meal and sit down to enjoy it probably has an impact on my digestion and my lunch health as a whole. How about you?
One of the benefits of staying home to work is not having to buy meals - or even prepare them to carry in to work. But sometimes, that makes meal time both boring and lonely. Or at least that's how it is for me. I've been trying to create exciting lunch meals for myself that I actually sit down and eat - from a plate.
Here's what I made today:
Crisp butterhead lettuce from my CSA. A layer or organic pea shoots (Trader Joes). Some shreds of raw organic sharp cheddar (Oakmont Farmer's Market). I put these on a plate and then made up a fancy tuna salad to put on top. I used a can of TJs tuna, a tablespoon or so of organic mayo, salt, pepper, shredded carrots, chopped red pearl onions (CSA), walnut pieces and topped it off with fresh dill (CSA).
It looked super pretty and it tasted great! I was satisfied all day. It felt more like a treat than my usual stand around and grab some food kinda lunches. Now, I'm not opposed to having a friend join me for such a lunch, but today - I ate this solo.
Do you work from home? What's lunch like for you - do you sit down and eat a formal meal? Anything that you love to make that's easy and filling and quick to both make and eat? I'm happy to hear all about it - Sher
