(That I have eaten for the past month)
Breakfast (and lunch)
I like having muesli for breakfast when I get into the office. The one I’m currently obsessed with is the Carmens Honey Roasted Nut Clusters, but I also occasionally switch to bircher.
The best thing is, there’s no preparation involved. Whack the muesli in a bowl and add some milk. If there’s fruit in the fruit bowl - cut it up and voila, you’ve got yourself some toppings. Bonus points are available if you have time to go out and buy some yoghurt (rather than using the company-provided milk).
The above reasons are why it’s also been a great alternative to a sanga at lunch. When you’re pretty much in lockdown for 8 hours straight (due to a waste-of-time mediation, court commitments or just trying to get an advice out), finding time to battle the crowds in the lifts/food court can be tough. Therefore, why leave the office at all?!? Just repeat the simple steps taken for breakfast and voila! You’ve got yourself a
On the similar vein, its hard to get food for dinner when you’re stuck at work late because all the food courts are closed. Sure you can use the meal voucher and go to a Chinese restaurant or order a pizza, but that would involve so much effort.
I have therefore just stocked up on, and gone through the whole range of sunrice pre-packaged meals (found near the “canned soup” section of the supermarket). I like that you don’t need to refrigerate them (and can therefore hoard them in your office without fear that your colleagues will "accidentally" eat them, even though you have meticulously
grafittied labelled your name on the packaging).
I also like that they taste way better than frozen meals. They taste real and as if someone had just prepared them the day before, rather than some other prepackaged foods which can taste fake. And there’s actual flavour. Woohoo.
And that’s it.
See you on the other side - where hopefully there will be non-packaged food reviews!
PS. Just reading over this post, I realise I sound:
- like a recluse;
- paranoid; and
- like I have OCD.
