It’s cold outside and you just want to eat something for lunch that makes you feel warm and cozy inside.
Nothing beats that feeling of unpacking your lunch at work to find a nice satisfying soup or chilli to carry you through the rest of your hectic day. The best part is that with a little planning, you can make dinner and a satisfying lunch at the same time.
I typically make my big batch meals on Sunday. If I make chilli or a stew I make enough that I can take it for lunch a few times a week. Using your slow cooker makes it even easier. You will hear me talk a lot about slow cookers. It’s simply because I don’t believe in spending hours on end in the kitchen cooking. I could because I love to cook and bake but I want my food to be tasty and I want it as quickly as possible.
Here a 5 quick hot lunch ideas that you can try.
