    Default Work lunches

    Starting a new position for the next 2 months where I'm basically driving around town doing community health home visits.

    I won't have access to a microwave, fridge or hot water so am wondering what peoples suggestions are for lunch!!!!

    I'm normally a 2 minute noodles or reheat last night's dinner girl so am a bit stuck at the moment hehe

    In all seriousness, quiche, savory muffins, pasta salad, etc are probably your best bet for cold foods, soup in a thermos for hot food

    I bought a cheeki food jar and it's been fantastic. I just heat what I want in the morning and put it in the jar and it's still nice and hot by the time lunch comes around. I also make sweetnloafs and muffins to take with me. I tend to have different snack foods in my bag too.

    I used to work 12hr shifts in a car with no heating, cooling or cooking appliances.

    You can do it!

    Freezer brick in a lunch bag - sandwiches, salads, yoghurt, fruit etc

    Hot stuff - either find a servo and use theirs (some won't let you lol) or I have an Aladdin bowl from anaconda / Kathmandu that you heat and it stays warm for 3-4hrs
