lonley71 saidI am starting a new job where i wont be able to store "cold" foods. I am worried if i dont find the right things to eat during my lunches i will lose the weight/muscle i've been able to gain in the last months.
If you guys have any ideas of (cheaper) food i could take to work that would be good for maintaining my weight please help me out! lol.
Buy an insulated lunch box/bag and some ice gel packs. If there is a microwave, you can heat up foods you've prepared healthily at home. If not, there are salad and sandwich options that are plentiful.
I take a big green salad made primarily of romaine lettuce and spinach almost every day. In a plastic container I have either ground turkey or very lean beef seasoned for tacos or just lots of garlic and pepper or something flavorful, or I will have cooked up some chicken breasts flavored with different spices (to maintain variety) and store them in the fridge until I put my lunch together for the day and heat the meat up before putting it on the salad. I also take along some cheese, nuts (this week it is sunflower seeds (shelled), but usually it's almonds, walnuts, or anything else (especially when they're on sale). Some low fat/low carb salad dressing goes along too.
But then, for me chicken and salad is a staple. I'm on a weight loss journey, where you are on a maintenance plan.
Congratulations on the new job, and good luck!
