Pack Work Lunches for Two

Thursday, June 5th, 2014
 

scramble work lunches for two

In all honesty I am usually packing at least 5 lunches each day but this usually includes 2 adult work lunches, 1 for my husband and 1 for me. It is actually just as easy to pack 2 lunches as it is to pack 1. After all, I already have all the ingredients and items out to pack 1 lunch, why wouldn’t I just pack 2? Five however? That is a whole different story lol. Most days my husband and I have identical lunches although sometimes I mix up the sides as I have done here. If I wasn’t packing for someone else, packing lunch for “2″ would give me 2 days worth of lunches for pretty much the effort of 1! Mixing up the sides will help keep the lunch interesting on the second day. I think the time saving benefit is pretty clear!

So you can pack lunch for two people or two days!

The lunch in today’s post is a simple, meatless, breakfast scramble. I scrambled onions, spinach, seasonings and eggs in cooking spray, then mixed in some cheese before I pulled them off the burner. I tossed a generous handful of raw spinach arugula mix into my Easylunchboxes container before adding my scramble mix. I topped with diced raw tomatoes. When the lunch is reheated the spinach arugula mix and tomatoes will par cook.  I finished off each with half a slice of buttered toast. We actually use real butter in moderation as opposed to a butter substitute. You could totally add a meat if you prefer, I just felt the eggs were enough protein for us on this day!

Each lunch contains similar sides.

  • My husband’s has pretzels (Snyder’s Gluten-Free) and strawberries.
  • Mine has strawberries, blackberries, carrots and sugar snap peas.

Gluten-free? Simply leave out the toast or swap for a gluten-free bread!

Deb

Sandwich Rolls for Lunch

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014
 

sandwich rolls

There are so many options to put in your lunchbox! Just browse the web and you’ll see! I myself have spent much time exploring all the options but sometimes it is ok to just pack a sandwich! Let’s face it, this is a tried and true simple lunch solution, right? One that tends to satisfy both kids and adults alike! It doesn’t take much thought and it is something most of us have in the kitchen!

My new Lunchbots Cinco did get me thinking however, how can I pack an entire sandwich in one compartment? My solution? The sandwich roll! Yes, that compartment contains 2 slices of bread, 2 slices of turkey, spinach/arugula lettuce mix and a little mayo. I used a rolling pin to flatten each slice of bread, spread each with mayo, layered with turkey and lettuce, rolled each up and slice into thirds. My sandwich now fits perfectly into one compartment. You could cut the crust off and spend time making your rolls a little neater if you like! I just kept it simple!

This lunch also contains organic baby carrots, blackberries and strawberries, a mandarin orange (aka a “halo”) and gluten-free Snyder’s brand pretzels. My bread here does contain gluten so this lunch is not gluten-free. We do however tend to have an abundance of gluten-free snacks in the house for my youngest who is gluten intolerant.

Deb

gourmet lunch in lunchbots cinco gluten free

Since my Lunchbots Cinco arrived I have been spoiling myself with fancy lunches! Now I’m not going to lie, clearly I enjoy packing lunch so “fancy” isn’t really a stretch for me! To be perfectly honest I find preparing food quite relaxing and it doesn’t take much to get me to kick it up a notch! It is a great creative distraction that gives me instant gratification.

Today’s gluten-free lunch contains:

  • A salad of steamed asparagus, strawberries and feta cheese
  • Orange and pink grapefruit wedges halved
  • Celebration Medley Trail Mix by Second Nature (view allergen policies here)
  • Perdue Honey Roasted Chicken Shortcuts
  • Salad dressing pictured in Lunchbots Dips Condiment Container (chose your favorite)

How do you feel about packing lunch?

Sincerely,
Deb
