When I’m in the office these days I prefer to bring my own lunch rather than eat in the canteen. There’s nothing wrong with the canteen, but I like cooking in the evening, so having a large lunch would be a bad idea..
So for lunch I try to vary things as much as possible. There’s only so much soup that you can eat!
One recent discovery is Uncle Ben’s Rice Time range.
Here’s what you get (via the official site):
They currently come in five flavours:
- Sweet & sour
- Medium curry
- Spicy tikka masala
- Mexican chilli
(Though I’m pretty sure I’ve seen at least one other flavour for sale there isn’t any mention of it on their site)
They’re easy to prepare and very tasty.
At less than 400 calories (most seem to be around 330 or so) they’re heavier than a soup, but not insanely so.
Preparation time is only a couple of minutes and since we have crockery etc., in the office I can easily chuck the final product into a proper bowl and eat it at my desk.
