A few days ago a girl contacted me with the above question: “what to bring with me for lunch when I’m on the road a lot a s a gluten and lactose intolerant that wants to eat clean and doesn’t have the time to prepare any fancy recipes?”.
This might seem like a very specific question, but I think there are more of us that recognize the following situation that had happened to me many times (when I still ate lots of tuna: bad girl!): at lunchtime, I would take my lunchbox out of my bag. In my lunchbox: crispy leafie greens combined with tuna and extra virgin olive oil, which made a very clean, gluten and lactose free lunch. The problem was that the liquid coming from the fish and oil and that should have been IN my lunchbox, now covered my notes, books and make-up bag, making them smell bad like … tuna. Besides, at noon, the crispy leafy greens were far from crispy.
Here’s a little help for those that do not work at home and travel a lot, but want to eat clean and lactose and gluten free. In this article I’m suggesting a few snack foods and lunch ingredients. Remember, they are not fancy at all, just easy peasy, quick and efficient.
These are your must-haves:
Organic, free range, hard boild.
Unsalted, unroasted nuts, i.e. cashews, macadamia, almonds, chestnuts, brazil nuts, pistachio’s, walnuts.
A little indulgency to me. Just bron a spoon and knife and cut up in half or cut the avocado at home and bring half an avocado. You could top the avocado with a little bit of seasalt.
The black Hass avocado most suitable to eat out of your hand.
To have like a snack, i.e. radishes, cherry tomatoes & carrots
