What to eat?
I’m funny about food. I will snack on anything and everything, but I also feel like I need Meals. At least three of them a day, and I strongly prefer that they are hot. I’m not saying I won’t eat cold food, but particularly if it’s cold outside I just feel funky if I don’t eat a warm meal every few hours. This has never been a problem before, because I’ve always had access to a microwave or some other means of heat when I’ve been at work or school. But now I’m in school from 8am-5:30pm every Monday & Wednesday (and apparently some Fridays if I don’t want to be a big failure, but more on that later), and I don’t have anywhere to heat up lunch. I feel like a big whiner bitching about my lack of warm food, but I am having a giant lack of inspiration about what to bring with me to eat that will leave me feeling satisfied.
On Wednesday I took a bunch of nuts and some fruit to snack on, and ate an almond butter & honey sandwich in between classes. It worked, but wasn’t particularly exciting and I can tell it will get old pretty quick. I also don’t really like any other form of cold sandwich. I used to have a Mr. Bento (see above) that I used to take lunches in. I believe that things can stay warm in them, but there is the whole plastic leaching thing to think about. I have yet to see a glass bento box, but might be convinced to invest in a metal one if someone can convince me that they actually stay warm.
Anyone have cold meal suggestions? Or suggestions for how to transport warm meals (and keep them warm)?
