Hi Meredith,

I would recommend buckwheat and millet as your go-to energy foods. They’re both test items, meaning you might want to wait a few weeks before introducing them, and then watch for any reaction once you do, but they both make for a fine rice substitute.

Also, you’d be surprised what counts as “lunchbox food.” Here in Japan, lunchboxes (called “bento”) contain normal meals: rice, small meat dishes, occasionally grilled fish, fried egg (“tamago-yaki”), vegetables, etc. Strangely enough, no one ever refrigerates or microwaves their lunches, and it all turns out okay anyway. Salads are also a good choice. I always pack a bento before leaving the house for more than a few hours… anything I don’t eat I just stick in the fridge when I get back and eat later.

For snacky foods to keep in your purse, etc., cucumbers are pretty decent, as are raw green beans. My favorite choice is nori, a type of dried seaweed commonly used in sushi (has a nice crunch and won’t go bad easily!)
