Lunch/Light meal options
While certain cultures sit down to the main meal in the middle of the day (which we applaud because it is great for your digestion)... we are realistic to know that this is not part of the modern life pattern. To sit and eat lunch in a relaxed manner seems to be a luxury. It is usually a quick bite between the lists of activities that consume our day. And for those on shift work...well there are no rules. If you are eating your breakfast at 10pm before your midnight shift, or dinner at 6 am, you probably just seem to grab what you can when you can, and find yourself eating odd combinations at odd hours.
To keep some level of balance in your eating patterns when you are on shift work, it is best to follow a similar pattern of three meals as you would through a normal daytime routine. Try to keep your main meal in the middle of the waking hours. This means that you do not sleep straight after a heavy meal, and the food is more easily digested.
