I try to make my own food for lunch at work, and it’s mostly leftovers or sandwiches. This time I went for curry (with way too much rice) with leftover veg thrown in, easy and cheap. Fun fact, I don’t really like curry but I figured thai curry would be less spicy than most. Was still too spicy though! For snacks I had a banana and an apple, I like to space these out throughout the day, in case I get hungry and crave a trip to the vending machine.
Thai green curry from a jar (Tesco’s finest for me)
Leftover peppers, courgetts and corn
wild and long grain rice mix
I also added some nutritious yeast and tahini to up the protein content
