UAE Saves Week: Pack Your Lunch Monday

What Is It?

Pack Your Lunch Monday – could anything be simpler?  According to Numbeo, a meal for two at a mid-range restaurant in Dubai comes to around Dhs150. If you’re dining or lunching out only twice a week, this adds up to Dhs1200 a month. And per year? A massive Dhs14400! 

We’re all guilty of getting a little lazy and taking the ‘easy’ option when it comes to our lunches during the working week. Who hasn’t picked up a sandwich at the canteen or a meal with a friend during a hard day’s work? What we are challenging is breaking the habit, once in a while is fine, as long as it’s just that. Form a new habit with us today, pack your lunch with us this Monday, and every Monday during your working weeks!

Check out this great recipe from Sally Prosser and share a photo in the gallery of your packed lunch to inspire others...


What Can I Do?

First step? Pack yourself something delicious to eat during your working day. Take time to plan your meal. Choose thoughtfully, something that will stop those hunger pangs or coffee cravings.
