I’m just wondering what could I take to work, which is quick to eat without making a mess and doesn’t look ‘strange’ for other people. Now I usually take some apples, bananas, oranges with me, maybe a salad. I do not have a dehydrator (or oven), but I have a blender and a food processor soon:) I thought I could make guacamole, but I would’t like to have the smell of garlic. Any ideas?
I’ve started eating guacamole without the garlic—not quite as flavorful, but much more breath-friendly for work!
Fruit is kind of the ultimate fast food, as are nuts. If I’m just eating fruit, I’ll also sometimes just eat a few slices of avocado with a little salt, it is super convenient and very satisfying. Raw soup is very portable and easy to carry and make.
Raw brownies are great if sweet food satisfies you. I go through phases where sweet food is fine for meals, then other phases where I have to have something savory mid-day. Right now my favorite meal is just sprouts with ginger-sesame dressing (I make it once or twice a week). I’m obsessed with it, and it couldn’t be easier!
Hope this helps!
any marinated veggies will look “normal” to the untrained eye. you can julienne some carrots, zucchini, asparagus, cukes, and/or daikon radish and marinade in your fave sauce… something gingery, something tomato-ey, or just a toss of olive oil, sea salt and pepper… you can do it the night before and it’ll be perfect the next day.
Wow! thank you so much, these are great ideas, I will definitely try them!
Sushi Rolls are really good to bring to work. Just spread on a pate (or your guacamole or chickpea hummus), some sprouts, sliced cucumber, sliced carrots, (as you know…the possibilities are endless!) Roll it up and throw it in a container. You can slice it like sushi rolls, but I just usually eat ‘as is’ as a hand roll. (You might need a tooth brush to get the seaweed out of your teeth)
You can also make soups pretty easily. My husband and I love soup with pureed carrots, coconut (water and meat), and some herbs/spices. Looks like regular soup!
I know how tormenting people at work can be when they do not want to understand your healthy choices!
hi flybaby..if you really want avocado…this is sooogooood chop up 2 bananas,1 mango and 1 avocado and mix together…refreshing :p my friend who says she doesn’t like avocado loves this! maybe it’s too strange for your work…? maybe they’ll all want to try…the woman i work with asked me to make her a green smoothie last week after a few days of quiet curiosity about what might be in my bottle.. yipeee
