20 Minute Teacher Lunch

For many of us eating healthy during the work week requires some meal planning and prep.  I am definitely the person that gets cranky without food OR my beloved cold brew coffee.  Since being cranky at work helps no one- I’ve taken it upon myself to make sure there are plenty of healthy meal options prepped and always, always a batch of cold brew brewing in the fridge.


Twenty Minute Teacher Lunch

Lunch time as a teacher consists of clearing out the classroom and prepping for the next class.  I answer emails, update the class website, and try to eat my lunch in a little under twenty minutes each day.  I do not have time for anything that requires prep at school as those minutes are precious.

Thankful that the Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat containers exist.  I am able to prep a batch of oven baked chicken, plank salmon, and even throw a round cut steak on the weekend.  I roast veggies and add in fresh rosemary, garlic, and a pinch of pepper to all of the recipes.  For now I have been eating the salmon cold at work… because the teacher workroom should smell like a teacher workroom and not like Pike’s Place Market in Seattle.  Do NOT break Teacher Code.  You will be shamed.  Resonably so.


Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat

The Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat containers are a great alternative to plastic and I love that I can toss them in the trash right as the kids come back in from lunch.  The Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat containers are made with plant fibers which is noticable in the texture of the main container-definitely a win.

Apparently we are allowed to have our own microwaves AND fridges in our rooms- WHAT?!? Spied those in a fellow teacher’s room and now I am working on getting my own.  So then I will be able to heat up my salmon to my little heart’s desire.  The kids may not like it… but I will. Love that the Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat containers are perfect for the microwave.  I’m in the market- any good deals out there?

No need to clean Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat containers as they get tossed in the trash right before the last bell rings.  I may need to bring 100 essays home… but worrying about my lunch supplies? Nope. Not now.
