No, but really, what’s for lunch?

standard January 31, 2012 2 responses

I know we’ve all read the book, or at least heard the maxim, about how no one really cares about what you had for lunch.

I mean, duh, in general that would be a terribly boring thing to write about. Unless you were a food blogger in which case it would be totally appropriate and would probably make me hungry.

But right now, right here, I want to know what you’re having for lunch. Especially if you hang out at home all day, working, not working, whatever. If you’re home between the hours of 11am and 1pm, I want to know what you’re feeding yourself.

See, I have a problem. I’ll find something awesome for lunch and make it, once, twice, three, fifteen times. I’ll stock up, pack the fridge or freezer full of my new favorite meal, and then, overnight, I’ll become overwhelmingly bored with my lunch options.

And that? Is when I start snacking instead of eating.

It is amazing how much crap I can ingest when I’m not sure what I’m craving.

So, since this whole having-lunch-at-home-pretty-much-every-day-instead-of-going-out thing is relatively new and since I’m almost over eating avocado and grilled cheese sandwiches, I’m turning to you for inspiration.

Do you make a big batch of soup every weekend? (That’s what Kelly of does.)

Do you always cook enough dinner for lunch left-overs? (That’s what Tonya of does.)

Do you find ways to jazz up a salad? (That’s what Katja of does.)

Or do you just forage in the fridge for hummus or an errant yogurt and carrot sticks? (That’s what Julie of does.)

Help me people! Don’t make me go back to the frozen burritos that have been playing hide and seek with the frozen peas!

  • Boiled eggs are a good start to keep in the fridge …
    Home made hummus and spinach dip go a long way for dips and spreads.
    We always keep a large salad mix because a slice of pizza or a hot pocket or something still looks healthy with a plate of salad 😉

  • I usually either have a frozen meal (Amy’s or Kashi are great) or make a veggie stir-fry. I keep a few bottled stir-fry sauces in the fridge in the event that I’m not feeling industrious enough to make my own. That sandwich looks amazing.
