    What meals do you pack for work

    We spend 8 hours a day at work. Some even more.

    So what do you guys put in the lunch box. Is bread a complete no-no?

    Protein shake is at the top of my list. What else is recommended or not recommended. I'm on a calorie deficit to get rid of belly and chest fat.

    Breakfast is normally oats. Coffee afterwards. Some mornings only coffee. I take a multivitamin in the morning as well.

    I eat every 2 & a half hours.

    I typically grill some meat on my countertop grill, throw in half a bag of steamed vegetables (usually California medley), and then throw a bit of carbs in there (either a serving of rice or a small red/sweet potato - I usually heat up the latter in the microwave beforehand). Throw some hot sauce on it and it's good to go. Sometimes I'll have a skyr or piece of fruit with it.

    I try to sleep in as long as possible so breakfast is a shake while driving to work (milk, oats, banana, peanut butter, whey)

    Morning tea example is: Mandarin, carrot, mixed nuts, cheese & crackers

    Lunch is most time left overs. Just me and my misses so at dinner we make enough for 4 and both take lunch. Usual meat rice/;potato, vege etc. Balanced meal

    Usually skip afternoon tea as it feels too soon after lunch so do that once I get home

    Brown rice, roasted chicken or turkey, raw vegetables and protein powder.
    No microwave oven in the office so I eat everything cold while I watch Doug Demuro videos on YT
    Protein intake must be calculated on lean body mass, not on body weight

    I cook protein in bulk weekly. Summertime grilled, chkn, pork, beef. Steam a 3lbs of brahcollie at a time during the week (eat about 10oz/day. Fresh Romain, cheese, oils, nuts etc and I'm all set. Make my meals as I eat them from pre-cooked stuff, and track my macros on my phone.

    Big Salad.

    Leaves. (Spinach, arrugula, beet greens, or kale, etc)
    Cubed beets
    Green olives
    Crumbled cheese (cotija or feta)
    Walnuts
    Chives

    And the topper-2 cans kippered herring. Sometimes replaced by 4-6 oz shredded chicken or ground beef.

    My lady wonders how I don't get bored. Can eat this for weeks.
