Packing lunches: it's another whole planning process.

Food has to portable.

Containers have to be clean.

Every weekday morning.

It's more dishes to do.

It's another bag to carry around (& not forget).

I don't use microwaves, so the food I bring needs to be edible in a cold state. Or it needs to be pre-heated at home & kept hot until noon.

So, my go-to strategy for workday lunches right now is a hot woman shake and these nori wraps.

I keep a package of nori, tinned sockeye & some green avocados in my desk drawer.

And I bring along a jar of store-bought sauerkraut or sliced cucumbers with olives to go alongside.

Then I pack the components for a hot woman shake, which adds some welcome warmth to my otherwise room-temperature lunch.

The Desk Drawer Trick

My #3 kid stopped by my work the other day. She watched me roll up my lunch.

"I'd actually eat that." she said.


I gave her my plate & dove into my desk drawer for another tin of salmon & some more nori.

It's my desk drawer trick.

I've fed ravenous foodless co-workers that way, too.

Nori wraps: portable, desk-drawer store-able (& teenager-approved.)

I've even lived on these for most of a week while at conference in an airport hotel in Winnipeg.
