So, I got tired of all the perfectly lined, rainbow coloured, overly presented pictures of meals that people were putting on social media and in cook books. They are not realistic. My meals definitely do not look like that. So make way for My ugly lunchbox!
Every day I take a lunch box with me to work. Packed with goodness on the inside, with no thought placed on the look.
I either use left overs from last nights dinner or cook chicken/eggs/salmon/lentils and anything that needs cooking, I do the night before while I am doing dinner. Or sometimes I buy the chicken pre cooked.
Then rest I just put together in the morning. In the boxes when I have chicken/salmon/tuna its one breast/fillet/can
Below are my box “recipes” .
Take them, use them, get ideas from them.
And if you share yours on social media, hastag #myuglylunchbox
Salmon and Greens
Chicken Kidney Beans
Chicken Butternut Squash
King Prawns & Scrambled Eggs
180g King Prawns
4 Cherry Tomatoes halved
Few broccoli heads
Handful of Spinach
Teaspoon coconut oil
-Coconut oil on to pan.
When pan is hot, add the prawns. Cook them until most of the water has evaporated.
Then add the broccoli and the cherry tomatoes. Cook for a min and then pour in the eggs. Stir and when the eggs are almost ready, add the spinach.
Cook until spinach is soft, about 60 sec.
Good is to add ½ avocado or little goats yogurt.
King Prawns & Greens
Five stems of Spring Onions
Season well with paprika powder
Teaspoon coconut oil
Coconut oil to pan.
When it is hot, add the prawns and the spring onions and season well with paprika. Cook for about 4 min. Then add the broccoli and the spinach. Cook until the broccoli is soft.
Salmon with Crushed Cashews
One wild caught Salmon fillet
½ small cup Couscous
One small pepper
50g goats cheese feta
Ten crushed cashews
-Best is to cook at least the salmon and couscous the night before.
Salmon into the oven for about 15 min, couscous into a bowl with boiling water just over it and cling film it.
Coconut oil to a pan, when hot add the spring onions, goats feta and peppers. Stir for a few min then at the broccoli for another minute.
Crush the cashews and sprinkle over.
Chicken & Beetroot
One Chicken Breast
50g Goats Feta
Few Broccoli heads
One pre-cooked Beetroot
½ clove garlic
-Chicken in the oven or get pre-cooked organic chicken.
Coconut oil to pan. When hot add the chopped spring onion and garlic. After 1-2 min add the beetroot, the feta, broccoli and spinach. Cook til all soft.
Cut the avocado and place in the box with the rest.
The banana and the nuts were for after my training as I trained and then still along day afterwards, therefore had to save my lunchbox until in the middle of my working schedule.
But, if you can, try to time your training right before one of your main meals.
Roasted Chick peas with the Usual!
½ cup chick peas
50g Feta cheese.
-this is delicious! And I also wanted to show you how good it can be to always have something healthy and ready in the fridge.
When I had this, I was going to have Salmon for my lunchbox. I put it in the oven, started to work on my computer and completely forgot it! So it was ruined. Looked like pink gum when I finally remember it!.. Oven timer, I cannot recommend more. J
So, I needed something else. I had feta and avocado and the day before I had done a batch of roasted chick peas and could therefore use that! Perfect!
Teaspoon of coconut oil onto a tray. Drain and wash chickpeas from a can and place on the tray. Add generous amount of garlic salt and salt & pepper. Roast in the oven for 30-40 min, until all crunchy.
Into the Ugly Lunch box with the avocado and Feta!
The rest you can keep in the fridge and add to a meal or have as a snack with a green smoothie for example.
So so yummy!
