The most important factor to consider is blood sugar stabilization because when blood sugar drops, we get shaky, fatigues, can’t think clearly, and who wants that at work during the day! So the key is to eat protein, healthy fats, and fiber (lots of veggies).
If meal prepping, sauté cauliflower rice with diced onion in olive oil for 2 min. Let cool and toss with olives, sun-dried tomatoes, chickpeas, chopped celery and diced chicken. This can be made ahead and taken to work for lunch, no need to reheat. Drizzle with an herb-infused olive oil and/or a squeeze of lime.
