Plan for a storm
This could be a literal weather storm, or for want of a better phrase, a workload storm. There will be times when nipping out to the shops just isn’t a viable option. Yes, it is truly remarkable what unusual and creative meals one can make from foraging deep into the kitchen cupboards. But you are working, and it doesn’t need to be this bleak. My recommendation is to take that £40 you spend each week in Pret – yes you do, don’t lie – and spend it on an Ocado shop. Treat yourself to delicious coffees, juices, sandwich-making materials, some four-minute fresh pastas and ample snacks.
