Hack Your Workday Lunches

Hack Your Workday Lunches (5 stars)

After years of being a stay/work-at-home-mom I recently found myself with my first outside job in more than a decade. It's been awesome, except I was way out of practice in the packed lunch department. For kids it's often simple since mine in particular lives off of Goldfish and Go-Gurt. But when it comes to my lunch I need a little bit more to sustain me. 

Packed offers some really useful ideas to improve your lunch. If you're trying to eat clean or simply just eat more nourishing meals you'll find recipes, tips and tricks, and ways to make lunchtime something to look forward to.

If you hate to cook and/or don't like vegetables and pulses I think you may find a lot of this won't really be your thing. Yet, for those who genuinely want to try things like meal prep or taking your soups, salads, and sandwiches to the next level it's a book that I think will inspire you in ways that will make meal prep or cooking feel like self-care instead of drudgery.
