out + about food

Cold Packed Lunches
  • Potato salad.  Try a dijonaisse dressing or sesame oil, vinegar and soy for a different twist.
  • GF sandwiches (Genius or GF Warburtons Bread)
  • Rice/Quinoa Salad
  • Sushi (I make it with veg or smoked salmon)
  • GF Pasta salad (but you’ll need a really decent brand of rice pasta, like salute, otherwise it will be a horrid texture when cold)
  • Bento style lunches
As you can see - not much choice for cold lunches!  I often take hot food in a thermos snack pot with me when I'm out and about all day.  Make sure it will keep food hot for as long as you need to avoid food going bad - a good food thermos will have a wide neck opening and will keep things hot for 6hrs or cold for 8 hrs.

Snacks (Healthy ones!)
  • Baby crisps (low fat, no salt, no additives)
  • popcorn
  • Poppadoms (you can microwave these for 1 min each instead of frying them)
  • Fresh/dried fruit
  • Nuts
  • Houmous and crackers/ carrot sticks/Gherkins (keep in a coolbag)
