Lunch time is a point where many people – people who start their days with the absolute best of intentions for making healthy decisions – falter. If you don’t bring a lunch to the office with you, you’re generally faced with a selection of less than optimal choices. And when you’re hungry at lunch, you’re in no mood to spend any extra minutes weighing the benefits of vegetables vs burgers.
The simple solution then, seems to be, bring your lunch with you.
But meal planning every single day of the week isn’t a walk in the park either.
I mean, I do it. I recommend you do it. It certainly can be done and it doesn’t have to be the hardest thing in the world, but it is a chore to do.
So then, am I saying you’re doomed to eat fast food and fail at being healthy day after day? Obviously not.
I am currently working in an office with 4 other people.
You know what I did today? I made a massive big batch of curried rice with broccoli, cauliflower, spinach and chickpeas and I brought it to the office for everyone to share for lunch today.
Why not organise a rotating lunch program with some of your friendly colleagues?
Let’s imagine there’s 5 people interested. You each bring something for everyone one day a week. That means you only have to cook once, but you get a healthy lunch 5 times!
Cooking for 5 people is really no more difficult than cooking for 1. Oftentimes it can be even easier and more cost effective!
Can you think of 5 people who’d be interested in joining you on a simple, healthy eating lunch program journey?
