Thursday

Have been working on making easy lunches to take to work with me.
This one is barley, tofu, sprouted lentils, daikon, blanched greens, and homemade kimchi with tamari.
I usually make it the morning so I don't have that much time, but this is easy if you have the barley already cooked.
What do you take to work?

i usually have big breakfast and i avoid heavy lunches as they make me sleepy. i make big leafy salads with sundried tomatoes,feta cheese and olive oil, pasta with homemade pesto, sweedish bread with roasted peppers, haloumi and oregano. and a big pot of herbal tea to wash down.

I've never ventured into sprouting, although I'd like to. How do you do it?

This looks very good. I almost always eat out for lunch at work, as I only work in the office one day a week and we have lots of very good, inexpensive cafes near my office.

Ah! I've been trying to be better about this too. I have spinach ravioli and cut fruit for tomorrow, but looking for some good healthy easy packs. Love your pre cooked grains idea. Looks delicious

these are all such good ideas!!! inspiring!

belinda, you just soak lentils over night and then drain, leave in a sunny spot and rinse them every day!

Belinda said...

Oh, that is easy. Well, no excuses for not trying then!

This lunch is what all my take-to-work lunches aspire to be! I'm always rushing out the door in the mornings, so I pack my lunch the night before. It usually consists of a random mishmash of leftovers. It's pretty sad, actually. :)
