Today's Mofo prompt is lunch on the go. Believe it or not, this is one of the tougher ones for me. For so many reasons, lunch is a meal I very rarely eat. I guess I usually consider my juice or smoothie my lunch. Since I have most often been a restaurant server by trade, I just naturally learned how to live on two meals a day. You don't get a break when you work at a restaurant. Like even if you work a ten hour shift. I once worked at a restaurant that was severely customer deficient, and no joke I could go two hours with not one customer, and the minute I wold try to sit and eat, someone would come in at that very moment. Without fail. I am not a person that likes to eat on the go. I don't want to be eating, and halfway through my meal get up to serve someone, and have to cater to their every whim. So, I learned to eat a hearty breakfast, go however long without eating, and then have dinner, or at least some food when I get home. Old habits die hard, and lunch just never has become a thing for me.
When I was a nanny, I still didn't get any scheduled breaks, but I sometimes would eat lunch with the kid. When that would happen, it was usually leftovers from the night before, or some type of sandwich or wrap. Something quick and easy.
I recently discovered Sweet Earth frozen burritos, and I would definitely use these as a quick lunch on the go.
I like to keep a box of some type of veggie burger on hand for when I just can't be bothered to cook. I like taking those for lunch back in the day too. I recently tried this new to me burger.
I'm looking forward to reading today's posts. Maybe I will get inspired to make lunch more of a priority!
