Hi, this would be my first post I was wondering if anyone could please offer any advice on some high energy/low fat packed lunch ideas? I am a first year student nurse and I will be starting placements in January which will be 12.5hour shifts. Just in need of some inspiration other than having a sandwich four times a week!
How about pasta salad. I make one with orzo pasta (a bit like rice grains) cheap mozarella from lidl, sun dried toms and some rocket. I like chick peas so I often chuck some in too with a splash of balsamic vinegar. Another one is quinoa salad with feta cheese, chopped tomato and cucumber. 3rd one up: tuna, pasta penne, chopped celery, rocket, balsamic vinegar. Or if you have access to a microwave, bring in a spud, give it 9 minutes on high, serve with baked beans and some cheese. HTH!
I really enjoyed my lunch today -in an effort to eat more veg, I had a salad of leftover sweet potato wedges, half an avocado, some chopped red pepper, cottage cheese and pomegranate arils. It looked very festive, too!
