    Lunch at work

    Hello all

    What do you all have for lunch when at work?

    Im trying to steer away from sandwiches, as I have a huge bowl of pasta at 10.30pm so am still pretty full come lunch and the extra carbs in the bread just bloats me up for hours.

    I need to have something high in protien and relativly high in carbs, say 800 - 1000Kcals, 50g protien, 100g carbs (ish)

    any suggestions, I work in an office so have microwave, toaster, fridge, etc all at my dissposal.
    --------

    At asda you can buy ready cooked rice that just needs heating up, i dice and cook up 250g of chicken breast and then put half a pack 250g of rice (egg fried its lush) and half a small jar of sweet and sour source, and heat in the microwave at work. Just cook up the whole weeks worth on friday and your done for the week.

    800-1000 cals for a single meal?
    Wow!

    I like to eat 3 hard boiled eggs and a apple, or something like that.
    There are fats in the egg, there is protein in the eggs too and the carbs come from the apple and the fiber comes from the apple too.

    Or you can add a can of tuna, apple and a fat like almonds.
    But again that wont get you enywhere close to the massive calories that this monster Paul needs to feed those huge muscles.

    I hate feeling bloated and full so I prefere the smaller meals eaten more frequently.
    But that is just me as I am old and stuff.
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    agree with ya Robdog the smoothies rock! For lunch im having linguini, beef and asparagus. Normally cook all meals on a sunday.

    I'm feeling omlettes right now though by the look of them i'm not sure they technically constitute omlettes more scrrambled egg with stuff in, usually cheese, tuna, bacon or whatever meat is handy. That and i'm pounding the shakes + fajitas, curry, enchiladas, anyhtin with flavour.
