Ever since I met my husband over 12 years ago he has been a very hard working man. Once he became a father to our sons he has worked even harder to make sure that we are well taken care of. His alarm goes off at 5am every day, and he begins his routine.
He walks the dogs, showers, dresses and is out the door by 6am to head off to work. It is a rare day that he returns home from work before 7pm. Which means that he needs to have a satisfying lunch that can power him through the day. Additionally, his lunches need to be quick and easy, so he can get back to work as soon as possible.
Quick & Manly Lunch Ideas
Here are our quick, easy, and manly lunch ideas and tips for the working guy on-the-go:
1. Brown Paper Bag It – My husband wouldn’t be caught carrying a big ol’ lunch box into his office. I know for some guys lunch boxes are cool, and that’s totally fine, but it’s just not his style. Plus, according to my husband his last lunch box “was stolen in 1983” and he has no intentions of buying a new one. So, to keep things hip enough for a working guy like my husband we recommend sticking to a classic brown paper bag to transport your manly lunch.
2. It’s What’s on the Inside That Counts – To power my man through his long work day I try to ensure that his lunches are nutritionally-packed. So, for easy side items I’ll quickly throw together a green salad (for him to have some fresh veggies in his diet), and also include foods such as: a cheese stick, apple sauce, orange slices, or yogurt.
However, I often don’t have the time to prepare him a completely from-scratch lunch to take to work. While on a recent trip to Walmart I was super happy to find the new STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen in the frozen meals section. They’re protein-packed, with each variety having at least 25g of protein! That’s an awesome amount of power to keep him fueled up for the work day.
STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen meals are available in an wide assortment of mouth-watering flavors:
- Steak Fajita
- Cilantro Lime Chicken
- Rotisserie Seasoned Turkey
- Bourbon Steak
- Oven Roasted Chicken
- Monterey Chicken
The first STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen meal that my husband tried was the Steak Fajita variety. He said that it was definitely delicious! It’s packed with tender prime rib steak in smoked red chile sauce with a mix of red and green peppers and a tasty seasoned brown rice.
STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen is most certainly a meal fit for a boss. These are my husband’s new secret weapon to powering through his day since they’re super convenient and take less than 10 minutes to prepare.
3. Send a Love Note – I’m a huge believer in sprinkling your spouse with love whether it’s a love note via text message, or a more traditional handwritten note. He works so hard and definitely deserves a little reminder that I’m thinking of him throughout the day. So, even though my husband won’t carry a lunch box, he can’t escape my lunch bag love notes! Totally manly, right?!
