I always bring my food to work each day. Except for Friday’s or special lunches. Working in the city, you could easily spend $20-$30 a day if you ate breakfast, lunch, coffee out each day. Crazy!
I got on the train and quickly realized – I forgot my lunch. It was either on the kitchen counter, or in my car. When I returned from work, there was my lunch bag, in the car where I left it. Doh!
Um, turns out I got busy and had an unexpected intermittent fasting! I didn’t leave for lunch until 12:30 so I went from 8:00 the previous night not eating anything but a cup of coffee.
My sister had lunch plans with a co-worker (rude I wasn’t invited – kidding!) so I took advantage to try the Pick 2 menu at Naf Naf Grill.
You can pick two proteins and then a little bit of everything else: basmati rice, hummus, chopped salad, tabouli salad and their fluffy pita bread. I could literally eat 5 of those they are so good!
Chicken sharwarma cooking on the spit – it smelled so good!
I made the decision to get the chicken and steak – it’s so much food it was lunch yesterday and lunch today. I counted my half serving plate as 10 points because of the half pita and the sauces. And yes, I have a chef knife at my office. 😀
The garlic sauce is so good, and that darker sauce is their “normal” spicy sauce, which is called S’khug sauce – so flavorful spicy!
It’s super fresh and delicious – they have five locations in the city and about 12 in the surrounding suburbs – you can find the location nearest to you here.
I remembered to grab my train snack from my desk. I walk through the French Market on the way home every.single.day and am tempted with macaroons, cupcakes, gummy bears, chocolate covered nuts – you name it, they have it.
I ate these chips with some water and it held me until I got home to make dinner. These 1 ounce bags are perfect for lunches, snacks, I love that it’s portion controlled too – I’ve been known to eat nearly a whole bag without even thinking about it. It’s 110 calories or 3 WW points.
