How to eat well on a job

It can be a struggle to eat well when you’re in the trade industry; some days you will be working through breakfast, lunch and dinner on a job which demands energy. There is often no fridge to store your food either which leaves you with limited options.

Here are a few meal ideas to help you avoid bad eating habits;

Soup in a flask

Soup is great if you crave hot food in the colder months; it might help you fight the temptation to pop to the local chip shop on lunch. It’s super quick and easy; heat it up just before you leave the house and pour into a flask - it will stay warm for hours.


Rice doesn’t need to be kept in the fridge if you’re going to be eating it the same day but it’s probably safe to keep it in a cooler-bag.

Rice and couscous dishes are very easy and quick to prepare. Cook it the night before or in the morning and chuck in your favourite salad/veg with some seasoning and sauce.


It’s easy to go off sandwiches when you have them every day because they can get boring. Make sure you buy in a variety of fillings so you can mix it up.

If you’re watching your waistline, opt for a wrap which is significantly less in carbs than a sliced loaf or roll.


It’s important to stay hydrated to keep energised. Sometimes you can think you’re hungry but actually you’re just dehydrated! 


I found the team to be delightful people and very trustworthy. In addition, they did the job for an amazingly good price.
