But People DO Ask Me What I Eat for Lunch

I get a lot of questions about what I eat for lunch since I don't eat sandwiches and that seems to be a go to thing for a lot of people around midday.  I feel like the following is pretty representative of my lunches which is to say that it's a hodgepodge of what needs to get out of the fridge because a new CSA basket it about to arrive!

I had an appointment from noon until two yesterday and the appointment was about forty-five minutes away, so I had to spend a small bit of time planning my food options for lunch, making sure I could eat it one handed while driving, if necessary. I dug around in the fridge and here was my lunch.
My usual bowlful of CSA vegetables (two tomatoes, a giant carrot, and some dragon's tongue beans), some pretzels (we're big fans of Glutino pretzels if you need gluten-free pretzels) and a 100-calorie pack of Wholly Guacamole, two pickles, and a hunk of cheese.

I don't actually like pickles, but we have a bunch of them and I'm desperately trying to convince myself that I do like them, so I have been eating them with lunch regularly.  We don't usually have cheese, but we had people over for dinner TWICE last week and I always get too much cheese for the cheese and crackers portion of the evening (is this a Wisconsin thing - you do serve cheese and crackers as an appetizer while you finish cooking, don't you?), so we have four kinds of cheese in the fridge right now and it's all taking all of my willpower not to just go eat it all right now.

And that was that.
I had some hot tea in the Powell's thermos and some nectarine-infused water in the water bottle. For the record, the nectarines don't infuse nearly as much flavor as do blueberries and raspberries. It's not my favorite. I cut up the rest of the nectarine for "dessert."

It was all gluten-free and no bread was to be found. If I need a snack to get me through between lunch and dinner, I'll eat some more veggies or maybe have a handful of almonds.
