Love your lunch
One of the most important guiding principles in my life is to absolutely love what I eat. Yes, simple enough and very intuitive, but if you really think about it, how many of the things you eat you actually, genuinely love? No one loves the club sandwich, drenched in mayo with two-days-old salad. Nobody really loves the sad M&S microwave dish that they heat up in the office kitchen. And absolutely no one loves the cafeteria meal that they get in their office cantine?!? …Well, you get the point. Lunches should be glorious and satisfying! So when you wake up tomorrow morning and stumble in the kitchen for coffee, consider this: what’s your lunch gonna look like?
What have we here?
Leftover crunchy chicken (from a crunchy chicken burger I made the previous eve), a lentil stew, a green salad with bell-pepper and a (rather large) piece of cheese. The perfect lunch box: good protein, more than half veggies, lots of greens. Easy to heat up and enjoy.
PS. As a side note, I never dress the salad from home, but I keep olive oil & balsamic vinegar at the office.
