Packed low-carb and keto lunches
Bringing a packed lunch to work is great for many reasons. Here are three of them:
- Not having to make quick decisions about where or what to eat for lunch on an empty stomach can make it easier to stick to your chosen diet.
- Home-made lunches often cost a fraction of buying lunch at a restaurant.
- Less household waste. Left-overs make for the best packed lunches.
So, what should you pack? Well, this of course depends on what you like to eat and if you are able to re-heat your meal or not. We suggest dishes that can be prepared in big batches, divided into servings and that freezes well. Our savory pies are great examples of such meals. They can be eaten warm or cold, which ever way you prefer.
Salads can also come in handy, and this is a great way to make use of left-over vegetables. Add chicken, meat, fish or maybe an egg or two and you’ll have a great meal. We suggest keeping whatever dressing you’re planning to add in a separate container to keep your greens from getting soggy.
A third option is to cook an additional amount of whatever you’re making for dinner and bring that with you the following day. Perhaps one of our low-carb casseroles? Our meal plans are built on the concept of packed lunches made from yesterday’s dinner.
