How can I make healthy lunch in 15 minutes?

Postby Miss. Ladybird » Thu Sep 15, 2005 8:46 pm

My work takes a lot of my time. So, I really don't have that much time even in my lunch breaks. I wake up very early in the morning and I don't have that much time to cook something to take with me to work…………..

I need your help here……………. I am not a big fan of burgers and soda. I'm living on biscuits and milk these days…..

Does anyone know any recipe for healthy dishes that don't take much time to prepare???......... I will be very grateful…………

I often solve this problem by preparing sandwiches at home with different fillings and different kinds of bread and I take with me some fruit or fruit juices too.
In this way I can eat healthier food than in fastfoods, snack-bars, etc. and it's a quick lunch (I only have 30 a minutes' pause).

Before I answer this question for you I need to know if you need to pack a lunch to go or do you mean to make something at home (do you have lunch at home)?

15 minutes to cook the rice with rice cooker. Put only one cup of rice, and it'll be enough for you since you're a petite person. You sound petite. Don't ask what made me said that since I just feel it like that. Anyway, while you're cooking the rice, put all the vegetables such as bell peppers, mushrooms, green onions or white onions, broccoli, bok choy, etc. to cook them together with soy sauce. You can add some shrimps, beef, fish if you like. You can also do omelette to eat with rice.
Ok, that's it for now. Gotta split.

Miss Lady Bird I hope you're fine.
Time in this case is really important.
I guess a salad mixed with boiled prawns or even tuna or Checken can help you, you can mix some boiled rice with it if you wish.
If you want to try Leyne-Trane receipi you've got to cut those vegetables and keep small portion of them in frig to save your time.
On the morning time you can only boil Rice with all vegetables.
Because Cutting those vegetables takes time unless you are an expert :wink:

I teach my wife to do this sometime because I learnt it from my mother :)

Different sandwitches will help you as serenella said

Usually I cut my vegetables in cubes or big stripes, so it doesn't take me much time. I do it while the rice is cooking. And I cut my shrimps in halves, beelf in cubes, and I have scallops and crabs that are already cut. :wink: See, it takes about 15 minutes for everything.
You can do it by cutting all the vegetables in cubes or big stripes and eat them with soba noodles and dressing. Gosh, that thing is so yummy... *drooling*. It takes me about 10 minutes to make, by the way.

:oops: I hardly cook since my mom is already a good cook. I only cook when I don't feel like eating whatever she's cooking, which hardly happens. And sometimes, I make lunch for school, but most of the time I eat at restaurants near my school.
