Healthy Lunch On The Go



Although I try to avoid it, but sometimes it happens and I have to have a quick lunch, made out of available ingredients: here it was a sandwich with smoked salmon, spreadable goat cheese (homemade), some sprouts on the top, a glass of orange juice, and a bowl of salad (kale salad). Nutritious and filling, this lunch kept me on the go until dinner time.

How do you eat, when on the go? 
Would you make a quick lunch, or would you have a take out from the restaurant or fast food joint nearby?

See you,
Marina

  1. That looks delicious! And to think it is so good for you!
    If I'm in a big hurry, I grab a bean burrito and a glass of ice tea if it's lunchtime. A slice of wheat toast covered with a thin layer of Nutella and a cup of coffee if it's time for breakfast. A glass of fat free mild and some Hershey's syrup if it's a snack. I could do better. I could also do worse and sometimes I do :(

    1. Bean buritto sounds good to me. Nutella and Hershey's is not for me: I am getting headache from sweets when I am hungry. Thanks for your comment, Sheila!

  6. Hi Marina-I would certainly opt for a quick and healthy lunch at home...there's always something in the fridge or pantry to make a great quick lunch. Love your healthy versions, as well. Yumm!

    1. I am with you. At home is always better! We had a dinner last night at an official event, and I came home wishing I didn't eat there. Lesson learned: eat at home before I go to other events. :)

  7. This looks so good! If I'm in a hurry, a turkey sandwich on whole grain bread is my go to choice. An apple with it fills me up.

    1. Thanks Della! Turkey sandwich sounds good as long as I have some baked turkey in the fridge. :)

  8. That looks fabulous - your quick lunches are better than most of the things I take time to make. I have been in the habit of cooking up batches of soup for midweek lunches at the moment. Makes things much easier.

    1. Aw, Liz, you are so sweet! Thanks you! I am starting to miss a bowl of hot soup, but then I look at the thermometer and it's above 40C every day, the only batches I can think of are more off cold air. I've noticed that we don't have much appetite this days: we would eat a lot of fruits, a lot of tea (both, cold and hot), vegetable salads and that's about it. :)

  10. Nice lunch! I'm lucky - my wife and I both work at home, so lunch is always just a few steps away (as are snacks, alas). My favorite quick lunch is a slice of toast with peanut butter and a piece or two of fruit.

    1. Thank you! I envy you, I had a job, when I was able to telecommute twice a week, it was a blessing! You know, it's funny, but peanuts are the only nuts we don't eat. We eat pounds of walnuts, almonds, cashews, but not peanuts. And I can't explain why. I guess we just don't get it. :) Sometimes a recipe would call for peanut sauce, and I just make substitution or skip that recipe. Isn't that odd?! :)
