(m)eat to live Posted September 11, 2012 Share Posted September 11, 2012 Ever since my pregnancy, I have had a major gag reflex to microwaved leftovers. If I reheat food in the oven or stovetop, I can eat it. But microwaved meat tastes super funky to me and if I try to eat too much of it, I will actually vomit. Maybe it's just a mental thing. Either way... This is posing a small problem for lunches, since I don't have a range at work. My "cold" lunch ideas have always been limited to salad, which I get bored with after a few days, and sandwiches, which are out. Before Whole30, I ate lunch at nearby restaurants several times a week for this very reason. I've been bringing leftovers, but I'm having a hard time choking enough food down to keep me satisfied until I get home. Any ideas for lunches that don't need to be heated (other than salad...)? side note: Anyone else out there get that "ick" feeling from microwaved food? Or am I a total weirdo?
