The White Coat and the Lunch Box

Recently, our daughter received her white medical coat, and she is on her way to achieving her dream of being a veterinarian.

Across the world, many people are entering dental, medical, or veterinary school, and preparing to work diligently morning, noon, and night to understand the overwhelming amount of information being presented to them. Lab courses can run into the early evening and study at the library sometimes lasts until closing time for many students.

With the size of a lunch box and no refrigeration, this presents some challenges to keep the food interesting. I am thinking about a world theme menu, and searching the Internet for recipes. For example, there could be sushi for a Japanese lunch, kimchi, for a Korean lunch, and shish kabobs for a Greek lunch. Certainly, most young children in this country might not appreciate wasabi, seaweed, spicy hot and sour kimchi, or be trusted to eat meat and vegetables from a pointed object. But I thought these mind and body health strengthening foods might be just the type of easily packed lunch box items for a young adult.

Is there someone out there who has tried to pack an adult box lunch for themselves, or for their family? Do you have any thoughts about this? Please send in a comment, even it it’s just packing suggestions. All help will be appreciated.
