Busy Gals Guide to Taking Your Lunch
by Louise D'Allura on July 5th, 2011


I’m often asked what do I take for lunch when I’m working with clients. My clients can tell you I do practice what I preach about healthy eating and avoiding food additives!

If you’re a gal on the go too, you might like some of these ideas too!

  • fresh fruit – I pre-peel my mandarins and pop them into a container. I’ll add chopped fruit too if I have time in the morning (e.g. sliced kiwi fruit, rockmelon)
  • whole fruit (e.g. Apple)
  • Vegetables (carrot, celery, zucchini, cucumber) in slices/sticks
  • trail mix - organic sulphate free dried fruit and nut packs (raisins, currants, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds)
  • reduced fat cheese sticks/cubes/slices
  • Cheese and crackers (or rice cakes/corn cakes)
  • Small dinner rolls with tomato and reduced fat cheese
  • Home made savoury cheese and vegetable muffins
  • Home made sweet muffins
  • If possible – Sandwich with cheese and salad (egg)
  • Chopped Sushi

I keep everything cold with a freezer brick and UHT milk or Juice.

Drop me a line and share any other ideas you have?

Hi Louise, I have discovered the quiches from the Cheesecake Shop. They are $17.95, I buy one, cut it into 12 pieces and freeze them individually. Then, in the morning, I take one out, chop a salad and off I go to work, then microwave the quiche at lunch time. I'm getting my veges as well as a protein serve. It keeps me going right through to dinner and only costs me $1.50 per serve.

This is a great time saving idea Tracy! Adding a salad means you're well on your way to your 5 vege! Thanks so much for sharing your busy gal lunch tip :)
