Lunch Boxing

Our Lunch Boxes

In an interesting article by Kelli Gardener from GroomandStyle.com entitled Eating at Home vs Eating Out, she talks about the fact that we often can’t choose the size of a restaurant portion and that pushes us to overeat.

I’ve been eating out quite a bit at lunch time in recent years.

Brigitte (my wife) works in a school about half an hour away in Yvonand and I often drive over and we go for lunch somewhere in Yverdon, which is the nearest sizeable town.

We’re lucky because there are a number of good restaurants in the area near the ice skating rink and parking is easy.

Something that was beginning to bother me though, was that we’d often take food home with us in cardboard or aluminium precisely because we didn’t want to overeat at lunchtime.

I’d order a pizza, for example, eat maybe two-thirds of it and then take the rest home in one of those take-away cardboard pizza boxes.

The sheer wastage of these pizza boxes, destined to be thrown away as soon as we got back home, started to get to me.

So rather than compromise and eat more than we wanted to, we got some varying sizes of food boxes and now we take home the pizza and other food portions in those.

It seems the perfect way not to overeat and act against wastage at the same time.

Of course, you have to wash the boxes after use and remember to put them back in the car and take them with you the next time you eat out.

Sometimes we forget.

In spite of this, I think we’ve managed to cut down considerably on wastage from eating out.

After all, there are only two solutions if you want to avoid overeating. Leave the rest on the plate or take it home.

If the food is good, it’s a waste to leave it on the plate. It will only get thrown away. It deserves a better fate than that.

We frequently get an extra meal in the evening out of a lunchtime restaurant portion with the result that eating out is not so expensive after all. It’s often little more expensive than buying a sandwich and I’d much rather have a hot meal – or two – for the same price or less.

So if you find that the portions in restaurants are overlarge, don’t hesitate to ask to take the rest home. You might feel awkward asking to begin with. You might even be afraid of what other people might think. But it’s a mark of respect for all the work that goes into preparing that food, from field to kitchen, and towards the food itself.

And if you bring your own boxes, you don’t even need to ask.

You can just put the food in the boxes yourself.

You may have seen the other two posts that I wrote about coconut oil on this site, The Tree Of Life and The Tree Of Life 2.

I just wanted to give you a heads-up about this article on BBC News:

Is Coconut Oil a Superfood?

The medical establishment has of late been trying to trash the idea that coconut oil is good for you.

Worse than butter for your heart, they say.

About the same as eating beef fat, they say.

The usual arrogance and ignorance.

So you’ll be pleased and reassured to read this article and see that an independent test comparing extra virgin coconut oil with extra virgin olive oil and unsalted butter proved the value of coconut oil in keeping ‘good’ HDL cholesterol up and ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol down.

It beat the others with ease.

Here’s the link again.

Enjoy, and have a great weekend whatever you decide to eat….

May your life never become an endurance test!

The Tree Of Life 2

Some time ago I wrote a post about the amazing properties of coconut oil:

http://endurancefreeliving.com/the-tree-of-life/

Helen Sanders of Health Ambition recently contacted me to tell me about an article on their site which details even more applications of this magnificent resource:

150 Uses For Coconut Oil

Some of the additional ideas are intriguing.

Take freezing into ice cubes for dropping into your favorite drinks, for example, or as a remedy for swimmer’s ear, which resonated with me because I do a lot of swimming in the lakes here in Switzerland.

Anyway, if you love this natural solution as much as we do or have yet to discover its potential, do check out the article:

The Lost Ways

Given the recent election of Donald Trump as the new American President, we may all have to brush up on our survival skills in the near future.

So here’s a heads-up about an interesting book called ‘The Lost Ways‘ which offers a number of intriguing survival techniques and recipes based on old lore.

As an example, you can watch a video on how to make pemmican, a traditional native American way of curing meat with fat and cranberries or blueberries which makes it practically last forever.

Click Here!

But even if you’re not going to be stuck in the woods for months without a refrigerator, there are lots of other wonderful tips and nuggets of wisdom that you can glean from this fascinating book.

Click Here!

If, on the other hand, you’re actually pleased about the election result, you might want to consider getting a free Donald Trump t-shirt.

It takes all sorts to make a world, as my mother would say.

You need to hurry, though. At the time of writing, the offer is only valid for another 19 hours….

Click Here!

God bless America!

Have a great week.

Love
