Everyday I take my lunch to work, just because I prefer m own food and I save more money. But I have to say that we are lucky where I work. We have a canteen, where the food is quite cheap and relatively healthy, we have a salad bar, a vegetarian, meat/fish option and soup, bread and sandwiches Plus cakes and desserts! So no complains there. My only problem is that I’m a bit sensitive to certain things like cream and too much oil, it just makes me a bit nauseous and I look pregnant as my belly get’s a bit swollen . So I would rather take my own.
Usually I take the next day what I had for dinner, as I don’t have the time to cook fresh just for that lunch, and I have to say it always taste good! I’m happy as I bought my first proper cute bento box, love it, it’s so tidy and neat, it makes eating lunch a much better experience 😉
This was what I had for lunch one day this week :
It was a very easy seaweed rice – I just cooked rice as I would normally, and add the pre soaked seaweed to cook along the rice for the last 10 m. I pan friend some sausages, this ones are D. favorites, they have north African spices in it. On a separated container I sliced 1 tomato and add some blueberries. On top of the rice i put this Japanese rice seasoning( mainly dry seaweed, garlic and sesame seeds) that you can buy in oriental shops, I bought mine in Japan Center. And that’s it, the colors and strong flavors helps me keep interested and eating less sweets ( which I tend to eat at work…) .
