    Exactly what I need for my work Lunch/Meal inspiration💞 I work 12 hr shifts and need two meals a shift… 3-4 shifts in a row so need easy make ahead ideas for packable Lunch/Meals. I’m creative & great making Lunches for the non-vegans in the family. When I comes to Packable Lunches/Meals for me, that’s were my energy and creativity ends🥴. Often just eating cooked potatoes and veggies day after day🙄🥴. Keep the packable lunch ideas coming😊👍🏼

    These recipes look fantastic. Just wondering if they are published in Richa’s cookbooks, Everyday Kitchen or Indian? Or just on the website. Thank you.

    Thanks so much for this post! I’ve been in a work lunch funk lately, primarily relying on just frozen meals. I’ve bookmarked a few of these recipes so that I can try them out in the next few weeks!
