Toolbox table

While some home food bloggers lament how to serve a different and varied home cooked meal, a lunch box meal can be just as challenging. Most recipes for brown baggers are geared for school age children.
The lunch box meal has to be designed to be eaten in a limited time frame and pack a satisfying punch and be cost effective. Usually my lunches are a carry over from the leftovers of dinner the night before.

Here’s a starter, since fresh tomatoes are available,
Ratios are your preference:

Diced tomatoes
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
Onion, diced
Garlic, diced
Cheese would be good too !
Combine the above in a container, shake, by the time lunch arrives, the flavours will have melded.
Fresh baked (if possible), Day old slightly crusty bread ,cut into finger size pieces.

At lunch, dip or pile the marinated tomato on the bread, consume, It’s like a fresh pizza.

Other items to outfit your lunch box,
Knife, fork and spoon.
Plenty of napkins
Frozen freezer packs, those packaged sealed gel packs, better than ice.
DIY Energy drink, fruit juice, (orange, lemon, etc) water, sugar, salt
Extreme hot days, freeze drink in freezer and let thaw and drink while working for a supply of a cold beverage at your workstation.
Cookies, cake etc, a batch of cookies will last several days, so will a cake recipe. Good for fast power food at break time. Also a recipe of home made granola type cookie bars will last several days , incorporate cereal , honey, sugar, chocolate etc.
A container of salad greens, with small containers of olive oil, vinegar, grated cheese, hot pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
Fresh or containers of frozen fruit.
If you want take out fast food once and while and don’t have a runner, buy the item the night before ,refrigerate ,and place in lunch box with a freezer pack.

You can still have a quality meal at work, it has to be designed and packaged for fast consumption.
