View Full Version : Mon-Fri jobs

So I am starting a new job.. actually training for a new job starting Wednesday. They are going to be long days and tons of homework.
How do you all prepare for your week? Do you just fill your lunch bags with whatever? Or do you recommend preparing on say Sundays and dehydrating things then.. etc. I'm going to be incredibly busy for the next 9 months training and need raw to keep me going, so hopefully I figure out a routine!
Thanks for any input!

I say just throw a bunch of stuff in a bag that you know you will eat and things you know will give you energy through out the day and roll with it.
That is what I do and have done in the past and it works well for me. If you spend all of your off days sprouting and tied to the dehydrator, you take all of the spontaneity out of raw.
Don't stress yourself out. Keep up the good work!!!

Groan, I hear ya on this one.
This is what I do:
Keep an office desk drawer full of nuts, seeds, dried fruit, raw bars, home made dehydrated goodies. This is the stuff I delve into if lunch hasn't been enough or if I've forgotten lunch.
Have a couple of pieces of fruit on my desk (can't keep it in the drawer as I'll forget about it and it'll go off).
Make a green smoothie in the morning (real quick) put it in a jar and drink it on public transport to work for brekkie, or have it at my desk during the day.
Always keep food in packets in my bag to nibble, same stuff as my desk drawer, plus fruit, carrots, snow peas etc.
Make lots of stuff on a day off, pizza bases, tacos, cookies, sauces and dressings, creams, pies etc. then freeze some and put the rest in the fridge.
Drop into the local organic shop on the way home from (or sometimes to if I get an extra 5 minutes) work and get the next day's fruit and veg.
Keep store bought packets of greens in the fridge so if I don't get time to cut up bunches I can grab what I call my '30 second lunch' bag of greens, tomato, avocado and a dressing and chop it up at work.
Keep stuff in the fridge at work.
A combination of the above every day seems to really help with the raw lunches and breakfasts. I dont have any problem any more. Today I had pizza for lunch!

Is there a break room at work with a counter and a fridge where you could bring a blender and keep stuff in the fridge for smoothies? I've done that at a couple of jobs and it was really easy.
Also, bring WAY more food with you everyday than you think you will need. That way you won't ever get caught hungry and be tempted to eat something cooked.
Also, you can always rely on Lara bars and other raw packaged food (there are LOTS for sale online) in a pinch.
Best of luck on your new job!

I bring a HUGE tote-bag of food with me to work every day. It is the only way I can survive without eating the junk food in the break room.
I bring: fruit cut up already, whole fruit, big smoothie in a mason jar, and then whatever prepared lunch I have made for the week (salad, some dehydrated treat i made etc.).
Lots of tupperware containers! It takes time to prepare everything but it is worth it.
