I have the book.  I've read it, and I'm really excited to get started.  I just have one question.  What do I do about lunch?  There are great meals listed with recipes that I think I can follow, but I can't cook them at work!  I have a refrigerator here, and SOMETIMES our microwave works, but I only have an hour at most (including cooking and eating).

The best (and easiest) option would be to make some extra portions of the dinners and take them as leftovers for the next day. In most cases, that should work pretty well! Hope this helps

Take sandwich fillers, or chicken, ground beef etc, and put it in crunchy cabbage leaves, hollowed peppers, or between cucumber slices.

Hard boiled eggs are great too.

Good old ants on a log paleo style! celery stuffed with almond butter and raisins (if you choose) or almond butter on apples - yum!

Big ass salads

crustless quiche

chicken with 1/2 an avocado

cold (paleo) meatloaf slices (reheat if desired)

homemade soups and stews

make a paleo tuna mixture to your liking and put on top of broccolli, then heat up. Its like a tuna melt!


Hope these options give you some ideas. Left overs are the easiest, but if you're a sandwich eater or brown bagger, these tips might help. :)

I'm big fan of leftovers, whatever they may be.

What if you don't have access to a refrigerator or any means of heating?

Wow that is a tough one.  How long do you go between the time you pack your things in the morning to the time you sit down for lunch? Depending upon the time span, you may have a few more options

Here are a few ideas:

-Big Salads with beef jerky or salmon jerky used as a protein source

-Almond pancakes made that morning, could be served cold with fruit or fruit preserves (make your own or make sure to check the ingredients)

-Almond butter with fruit, veggies, and nuts

-Hummus (check out the Primal Palate recipe...which doesn't use chickpeas) with veggies, etc. (** you don't have permission to see this link **)

-Hard boiled eggs (this is one that would depend on how long you go without a refrigerator

-Cold soups stored in a thermos

-Make your own wraps using coconut flour (there are tons of recipes out there, check out this one from Against all Grain: ** you don't have permission to see this link **) with jerky, veggies, or hummus


Hope this gives you a few ideas...Good luck! Kara
