Lunches

  1. 1 What will everyone be doing for their lunchtime? I know I will be packing a lunch most days. I just have no clue what to pack! Any ideas are appreciated.

    Thanks

    I pack about 75% of the time. When I do, I will take a salad with grilled chicken and veggies (I bag it all up separately and then mix it right before I eat), sandwiches or wraps, cubed chicken and cheese, or leftovers from the previous night's dinner. If I'm feeling especially lazy or running late, I'll grab a Lean Cuisine and heat it up at school. I almost always bring fresh fruit and veggies, and sometimes trail mix or a granola bar for snack. Yogurt has been good too. When I'm feeling bored with the same old stuff I will eat out. The last hospital I was at had the BEST cafeteria and I ate there practically every day. I also gained about 10 pounds during that clinical rotation, so I wouldn't recommend that!

    The only classes I have during lunch are my 2 clinicals. I will probably bring snacks and then eat when I get home. My 2 lectures are end right around dinner time, so I'll be home to make dinner then as well!

    When at clinical try and avoid foods with pervasive smells: fish, garlic, other ethnic foods with powerful smells.

    Good thread! This semester will be my first of NS and we have 3 days of classes from 8am to 3 pm with only 15 minute breaks, until the start of clinicals in October. So bringing lunch is a must! I have no clue what to pack so this has been helpful.
