Post your ideas for great brown bag lunches and read the other ideas here!
any bargains at the green market? because the food is at least 3 times better than even whole foods...
Last year I left a full time job to pursue a Masters degree. As a result, I don't have money to eat out -lunch or dinner. My unintended consequence was the ability to maintain my weight where as before I had more significant fluctuation. Once I go back to work I plan on brown bagging and keeping up with eating at home.
I work in an office alone and find I end up eating the lunch I've packed and am in the office all day.
Be sure to post your recipes and tips to the link above, not here! Thanks!
The problem with the fake mold is that it is gross. I have never stolen food but I hate grossness so every so often I have to go through the fridge at work because people sometimes forget their food etc. creating unpleasant odors. So the food with the fake mold could get thrown out.
hmmm, #1 - Rikers nutri-loaf? No wonder they have prison riots.
Simple - in-fridge web cam, followed by public flogging!
4 oz Chopped Spinach4 oz Carrots, Diced8 oz Vegetarian Beans
drain all vegetables well4 oz Applesauce1 oz Tomato Paste1/2 cup Potato Flakes1 cup Bread Crumbs1 T Margarine1 tsp Garlic Powder or Flakes
Combine drained vegetables. Gradually and gently blend in remaining ingredients until well combined but do not over beat. Mixture should be stiff but moist enough to spread. Each loaf should weigh 1 1/2 pounds precooked weight and be scaled to insure proper weight. Place mixture into a loaf pan that has been sprayed with pan release and lined with filter paper.
Each Riker's nutri-loaf should bake at 300 degrees Fahrenheit in convection/steam oven for approximately 40 minutes or until the loaf reaches 155 degrees internal temperature.
