The fact that you are in the office during lunchtime, or in the field, is no excuse for you break your carefully organized Paleo diet plan.
With just a little effort and time in the kitchen, you can come up with delicious and healthy foods perfect for people who are on-the-go.
You can even make some of the items in batches and store them in the fridge.
This way, you won’t have to go through too much trouble everyday.
Healthy, filling, refreshing… It is no surprise that salads easily top the list of Paleo diet recipes. You can choose from a variety of ingredients and dressing. Here is a quick guide to making your salad for lunches in the office.
1. There is no clear cut definition of what vegetables you can put in your salad. Basically, you can mix in your choice of vegetables (fruits even). Staples of most salads are onions, broccoli, olivers, peppers, radishes.
2. For variety, you can top it off with a sprinkle of bacon.
3. Balsamic vinegar, with its tangy flavor, best complements the flavor of the bacon as well as the rest of the vegetables in the mix.
II. Bite-Size Foods
Indeed, there are times that good things come in small packages. Here are some of the best bite-size foods that are easy to prepare and perfect for any trip.
Rather than bring a can, it would be better if you transfer olives into another container which are easy to carry around, not to mention, easy to open.
2. Leftover food
Instead of throwing away your leftovers, why not cut them into small pieces and mix it with vegetables like greens and carrots? Store them in a plastic container and you are good to go.

This is a classic favorite to keep hunger pangs at bay.
