If you’re a 9-5er, lunchtime provides the perfect opportunity to get away from your desk for few minutes and free your mind of those damn emails management has been sending all morning.
But, if you’re on the Keto diet it is the best moment to get a healthy meal that is filling, low-carb and nutritious to keep you on track with your goals.
The problem is, preparing lunch from the night before can be a struggle, especially when you have a ton of errands and duties to attend to after work. This means you end up running to a fast food restaurant or take out spot for a quick bite during the days, jeopardizing your gains and probably falling off track.
