I was told by my brother-in-law to avoid eating out as much as possible. He suggested that I should only eat home-cooked dishes to make sure that the food I eat was prepared properly. So when we got back to Dubai, hubby & I made extra effort to prepare healthy dishes to pack for lunch. And today, these are what I had in my lunch box:
That’s Beef Broccoli (sans the oyster sauce) & a cupful of Jasmine rice. To keep the broccoli’s flavor, I steamed it separately. For snacks, I brought a medium sized navel orange and a Kellog’s Rice & Wheat Cereal Bar with yoghurt flavor topping. Since I get frequent hunger pangs at work, I stocked up on Nestle Fitness Whole Grain Cereals with Fruits and a bottle of full cream pasteurized milk in our pantry. As our company promotes wellness to its staff, we have lots of fruits like granny smith, fuji apples & bananas which we can grab anytime we like so I get a good dose of fruity goodness everyday.
It is a challenge though when hunger strikes you when you’re on your way home. Our travel time is around 45 minutes each day so by the time the clock hits 5:45 pm, my stomach grumbles ever so loudly. I haven’t found a solution to this yet (other than stopping at the nearest fast food & grab a quick bite) so if you have any suggestions, they’re more than welcome.
