So, this is my normal lunch. And I know it doesn’t look amazing, but it is easy to store, quick to eat, and fairly cheap.
It is Sardines and veggies. This is what I eat at least a couple of days a week. I get 6 cans of the Wild Planet Sardines from Costco for $10, which is a fairly cheap protein, then put that with some mustard and sriracha and, if I have the forethought to pack one, a half or whole avocado. Then I steam the Organic Normandy veggies from Costco and have those frozen in individual ziplock bags so I can grab one in the morning or leave a couple at work for when I need them.
I have looked and looked for options for paleo lunches that are truly portable and easy, and this or the BA Salad are the easiest and best things you can do if you don’t have leftovers waiting on you in the fridge or freezer that you can heat. The Sardines are a great source of Omega-3’s, as well as Vitamin D, and have so many other vitamins in it, it doesn’t make sense to list here. Check out the Vitamins and Minerals on this page.
Plantain Chips from the store
Now, a couple of months ago, I looked in the clearance section of Kroger and found something that I grabbed every single one of. Plantain chips! These little guys are fantastic for dipping into the sardine mix. I will eat about half the bag at lunch, and it gives me some good crunch, salt, and carbs, and the only ingredients on the bag are plantains and palm oil. Not too shabby Kroger. Too bad they don’t have them anymore since they were on clearance, because these are really nice. Guess I need to go to a more ethnic store to get some of my staples.
