So I am training, toning and eating healthier. I am a stone (14lbs) over weight. I thought I would share with you some of my favourite healthy lunches that I prepare at work.
I get 30 minutes for lunch so I don’t have a lot of time. This Asian salad I saw on a website and have adapted it to suit me.
You will need:
- Shredded carrots
- Cabbage medley
- Asian slaw
- Roasted sesame seeds
- Prawns ( I chose chilli and coriander)
- Soy ( I am using Tamara less salt)
- Sriracha ( I don’t like heat but I love this sauce)
- A lime
This will make 2 lunches with enough salad to make 2/3 more.
I would love not to buy things with so much plastic however everything I bought was prepacked. Plus I only get 30 minutes so I have time constraints.
So Tesco is my local supermarket to work. I tend to do a shop for the weeks lunches! This isn’t a cheap lunch but I get 4 lunches out of it so it works out at about 2.50 a lunch and 250 calories per portion. I colour make this a lot cheaper by pre preparing everything at home but I would have to buy a lot of ingredients that I would have to eat all week.
I don’t know about you but I hate eating the same thing every day. When you are single this is the worse part of cooking!
I decided to prepare lunch for my work colleagues who only eats fish.
This Asian slaw is literally pickled cabbage and it takes so yummy. It adds an acid and freshness to this salad and I love it!
Now you want to give it a good mix
Now you add more flavour. Tamari has less salt than normal soy and it gluten free ( not that this effects me)
sriracha is my new best friend when it comes to cooking. The level of heat is just yummy. Even for people who don’t like heat I would recommend using this! Just add a little at a time! I always find I need just a wee bit more!
Everything tastes better with sesame seeds. These roasted ones last for ages in your cupboard and they can make pretty much any dish tasty.
Fresh lime. I love like with the sweet salty chilli dressing you have put in this just helps sharpen it all up!
Perfect quick lunch
Yum, add as little or as less as you like. If I don’t add it does feel like I am missing something.
So that’s it!
I have more healthy lunches coming but for under 300 calories this is a great lunch and if there are left overs that get to marinate over night, so tastes even better.
What’s your favourite lunches.
