Double recipes – If you don’t have time to cook, then simply double your recipes when you have the opportunity to cook. Store the leftovers in individual, easy-to-grab sealed containers for lunch. This will help you save time, money and prevent an empty stomach or reduce your risk of being glutened.
Be prepared – I keep dried fruit, nuts, and gluten free instant oatmeal packets at my desk for a convenient snack or meal. Thankfully, I have the opportunity to cook dinner most nights, so my family and I usually have plenty of leftovers in the fridge and freezer to eat during the week.
BACKUPS – Keep a back up gluten free frozen meal at work – just in case you happen to forget your lunch. Always keep a gluten free granola bar in your purse or car, just in case all else fails.
