Organising lunches for work days isn’t always easy. In our new series, ‘The Lunch Diaries’, we ask Australian women to give us a week-long snapshot into what their work day lunches look like. From meal preppers to last-minute buyers, it’s an interesting look into the lunchtime habits of everyday women. This week, a 24-year-old audience development executive shares her lunch diary.

How would you describe your approach to food?
I want to be excited by what I eat every day. No sad desk salads here!
I also don’t like to meal prep at the beginning of the week because I don’t like the concept of eating the same thing every day, so I usually make my lunches the night before.
I try to eat pretty low carb for my main three meals every day, so that I can fit in the many treats and snacks I consume in between (it’s hot cross bun season, after all!) I follow the rules of balance and I find by eating low carb for my main meals, it allows me the flexibility to indulge at other times. It’s a win-win and makes me feel my best!
Where do you get your food inspiration?
Mainly from Instagram. I love to use the “Collection” feature on Instagram and save recipe inspiration to look at later! It’s kind of like a lunch mood board.
