I have finally started cooking my lunch to pack to office. Previously I wrote about preparing my partner's lunch.
These lunches are nothing fancy. In fact they look terrible as they were hastily prepared and the pictures taken at 6:00am.
Grilled oinks, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes and fried eggs.
Roasted chicken, cherry tomatoes, bittergourd and fried eggs.
|Roasted chicken breast, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers
and coleslaw. Leftover Italian parsley sprinkled for good measure.
They may offer variety and convenience (and I admit that their food is quite tasty) but I did not feel good after eating.
I experienced bloating, drowsiness and fatigue, some sort of drop in energy level which does not happen when I eat home cooked food.
|Tempeh, grilled oinks, roasted cherry tomatoes, tomatoes,
cucumbers and coleslaw. Weird combo.
I admit that it is quite a hassle. Preparation work is done on weekends and I sacrifice quite a lot of time on Sundays.

Every morning it is a mad rush preparing food for two. Which was why I gave up at one point.
It is worth the effort and I am happy. I feel a lot better since preparing my own food and I do not want to eat "chap fan" anymore unless if it is absolutely unavoidable.
So you ask me, PH, do you go bonkers every morning? Actually in the beginning, yes I did. Meals for one is easy but meals for two can be crazy. Especially when we eat different things.
But I have improved on my work process and it's working pretty well. I am a lot more efficient with my timing. It looks like my DIY lunches are here to stay!
