I love lunch! Not as much as I love brekky... but I do love lunch (dinner not so much, because I like variety and I sort of run out of something new to make a meal with by the end of the day.
On weekends and holidays my lunches are super-yummy and filling- however packing a lunch and making it super yummy and filling is a whole other story.
I've packed my own lunch for quite a while now... so I have a pretty good repertoire of things to make that not only last, but put a smile on my face as I eat it (yep, my friends think I'm weird)
So I thought I might show you last weeks lunches for inspiration/ stimulation/ salivation :D
Monday was gooood! Home-made wholemeal spelt bread, spread with hommus, topped with spinach, mashed pumpkin, sauteed mushrooms, a lentil burger, tomato slices and grilled yellow capsicum:
This may have been my favourite lunch of the week! It was cooked brown rice, steamed pumpkin and mixed four beans, all mixed together with some home made pesto!
Lastly, Thursday's lunch was black quinoa, steamed pumpkin, and roasted eggplant +zucchini+capsicum+mushrooms- drizzled with olive oil and crushed garlic and roasted for around 20-30 mins at 180 degrees celsius:
I must admit, I don't mind the jealous stares I get when opening my lid/ unwrapping my sandwich. My enjoyment of this is simply the fact that they should bring more then- an apple is not enough for lunch! (as shown in images above:) And if my lunch prompts them to do so: win/win!
What are you having for lunch today?
That's all for now folks! See ya later
