In the comments, some one asked about food planning. Let me see if I can help inspire and simplify a little.
First of, let me get this clear for you; as you will not be eating a krispy creme doughnut or a special k granola bar with 72 ounces of coffee at your desk. Get ready to upset the status quo. Expect staring, questions, ridiculing and general dislike and contempt for whatever it is YOU'LL be eating at your work. I made the mistake of eating my broccoli cauliflower mash the other day. The smell was so strong that my coworkers thought, some one had relieved them selves in one of the offices. (My bad, I must admit the smell was a bit pungent, and will leave that for home from now on) When they came sprinting into my office to ask " Marc, WTF????" I told them I had terrible gas from the twinkies I had for breakfast, and if I could please have some privacy, as it is embarrassing enough for me. ;-)
Here's a question; do you ever eat fried or scrambled eggs cold? A boiled egg cold is normal, but I don't think many people eat it cold any other way. I do ;-)
Breakfast at the office for me might look exactly like this.
Put the above in a to go container and put a freezer pack in your little lunch box to keep it cold.
So for planning purposes, get ready to cook early in the morning or at night and get used to eating warm dishes cold. The other morning I made "meat salad'. In some O butter, brown grass fed ground beef. Then toss meat with spoon of mayo and lots of thin sliced celery.
A nice nicoise salad (let me know if you need recipe again) is perfect for breakfast and can be made the night before. Like many other people that red this blog, I eat a lot of left overs for breakfast. This was dinner the other night. Sauteed asparagus with some of my homemade hot pepper relish and tuna. The left overs were delicious.
For the poster that left me the question about food planning; post a small list of some foods that you like to eat, and I will give you some ideas. Would that help?
