View Full Version : Raw food Adult Lunch Box

So I need some more ideas for lunches. Ive been working more hours and if I get hungry I really do not have a lot of options for raw choices... And I have been doing so well lately (like 90% raw almost 100% of the time) I don't wanna cave and get junk when I get really hungry.

Bananas are your bff, closely followed by the citrus family. When ever you feel hungry throughout the day you can snack on one.
For the actual meal, you can always take a salad. Put the salad in one container and the dressing in the other, then combine when it's chow time. :) If you have something that needs to be eaten quickly like avocado chunks, toss them in a little lemon juice before packing, or pack a knife and bring the fruit whole and chop right before eating (a fast way to cube avocado is after cutting it into halves score the flesh checker-board style then scoop out the chunks with a spoon).
Portable dehydrated goodies are also good. Fruit leather, eggplant bacon, crackers/chips, the list goes on. :p
I'm lazy, so my lunches are always just an array of portable fruits/vegs eaten plain. Yea, it sounds boring, but it works for me. Eventually I'll work on preparing my food ahead of time. :rolleyes: Until then, I'll shamelessly eat my giant hunks of cauliflower.

can I have something other than hand fruit and salads? I will have those in my lunch but I want something a little less boring (not that salads have to be) I just wanted a variety of options to choose from.:o

I love raw crackers like onion bread, with a spread like the eggless salad or mock tuna or guacamole. Or just plain crackers with my salad. The crackers make it seem like a real meal to me. I also love to take soup to work. I have a tiny crockpot that has a "warm" setting and I heat my soup in it for about 1.5 to 2 hours, which gets it just warm. It is perfect because it is always FREEZING at work.

The easiest thing I can bring to work is a GS. I do a lot of variation so I don't get bored. Also banana's are a girl/guys best friend. I work in a restaurant. You'd think I could find something to eat. I just bring my own. (laughing) I also make sure that I have a snack bag with some nuts in it in my purse.

I used to bring flax crackers or bread and make open faced sandwiches with raw hummus, avocado, tomato, and sprouts. Or nori rollls, or even a raw dessert! Yum! Raw soup is good too!

You know, haven't tried it yet but I recently mastered spiralized Zughetti, as I've dubbed it. It occurred to me yesterday that it would make a fantastic lunch item. Since the types of sauces are rather numerous - tomato-based style, to cream-style to just oil and spices, etc., etc. - it might be something to consider for a portable adult lunch ... (?) I've been finding it one of the easiest things to make ever. But that's me ... <g>
