For the first time in a long time, many of us are NOT eating lunch in a hurry, hunched over a desk. Instead, we’re sat down, at a table, most likely taking our time... doing lunch the leisurely way!
Even the habitual lunch-skippers are getting in on the act, swapping working lunches… for lunches that work. Work to nourish, and work to satisfy.
Far from the grab-and-go grub days, those of us with time now to spare are relishing this opportunity to busy ourselves with meal prep, taking into account aesthetics, just as much as nutrition, both of which are now taking on a new importance as our priorities shift from productivity ... to health.
For some, this might mean batch cooking, recipe experimenting... and at the very least, pimping up your sandwiches with some simple tasty and decorative tweaks.
Artisan bread sandwiches, on a platter... in the sunshine.
Lunch has never looked so lush!
It’s the difference that Gradz Bakers strive to lend with their unique, hand-crafted loaves, which are fermented to produce a bread which has less gluten, and is more digestible than standard commercial bread.
Gradz Bakers bread is available on Ocado uk, making it an accessible option for those of us with slots reserved (keep refreshing that screen!!)
The best bit of all this mindful meal movement, is that it’s making us appreciate just how much room for improvement there probably was with our (at the time) seemingly healthy lunch habits.
Setting a new precedent of sarnies in the sun, might well seem unsustainable once normal life resumes, but if nothing else it gives us food for thought the next time we're tempted to forgo the 'happy’ in our meals.
