Hoorah for eggs!

Almost 2 weeks of making packed lunches every single day I'm at work now; I usually give in once or twice a week and get a soup from EAT or pod. I'm quite pleased that I've not cracked yet, despite the odd little setback and really not feeling like it a few times.

Today's lunch protein was in the form of boiled eggs, for a change, which I cooked while eating brekkie this morning and they were absolutely lovely even though they were cooked, peeled and cut up this morning, 4.5 hours before I got to my salad. Nice change from the alternating between chicken fillets and goats cheese. Ohyes indeed.

B - greek yogurt with 1 scoop whey, fruit compote and flaked almonds
S - Nakd bar; Cocoa Loco
S - tall, skinny caramel macchiato
L - salad - spinach, sweet peppers, sugar snap peas, celery, 2 boiled eggs and a dash of honey & mustard dressing
S - tangerines
S - beef jerky
D - salmon fillets on couscous, lettuce, sweet pepper and a dash of salad dressing

Exercise - enforced rest

  1. For even lazier eggy goodness I ♥ pickled eggs, but they're a bit of an acquired taste. A tin of mackerel in tomato sauce is another standby of mine when I need a packed lunch in a hurry.

  2. I can't seem to get tinned fish to work, annoyingly. I do love tuna and sardines, but I find the basic salad I make doesn't work very well with them and I end up needing creamy dressings for it to taste nice. If it weren't so expensive, I'd use salmon fillets!
