My new healthy lunch

Last week I decided to shake up my daily lunch – I eat the same thing every day, after a bulk prep on Monday – kept in the fridge then packed in tupperware. Used to be I had tuna sandwiches with salad, but I got worried about all the mercury. For a while it was mackerel, but I got tired of the taste. For a long time it was just chicken and mayo, with the bread getting phased out, until I was eating just chicken and salad every day.

Not tasty. Probably not that great in terms of nutrition either. So I did a Google and came up with stellar health foods as follows:

  • Avocado
  • Sesame seeds
  • Quinoa, rice, grains
  • Chicken breast
  • Oily fish
  • Nuts
  • Kidney beans
  • Eggs
  • Cottage cheese
  • Salad
  • Tomatoes

I figured I’d just mix all that stuff together in a tub. Cottage cheese makes it all pretty tasty – basically a sour cream flavor. Here’s what it looks like smushed-up in tupperware at lunch time:

Messy but good. This on top of oatmeal with nuts and berries for breakfast, plus vitamin/mineral pill and fish oil – how could I be eating any more healthily?

The only downside is it takes about an hour on Monday morning to prep it all!
