Starting a new job with no kitchen

After 7 years im going back out on the road to work, I've had the luxuary of a Kitchen at my current job but as I'm going to be in a car/van now I won't always have access to a microwave, (I'll have a cool bag to keep things cool 😁)

Wondering what my options are diet wise I currently have chicken rice and green beans 3 times during working hours but I'm aBit worried about eating a **** load of cold rice and chicken everyday, I was thinking I could swap go pasta or cous cous as its similar in carb values to rice, I think potatoes will just be toouch to choke down! As I have 200g or rice per meal, problems is but I think I might have. Wheat allergy as it makes me very bloated, I struggle with epic water retention as I don't want to be bloated on top of that so rules out pasta/bread etc

Anyone else got an suggestion for cold carbs, as pasta bread and potatoes are out the window, I'd considered soaked oats, rice cakes or rice noodles but that's all I can think of

    The cold rice issue is the bacteria in the rice. Its a common issue with eating cold rice but careful staorage in a fridge and then a cool bag should avoid the issue. Re-heating the rice inadequatley can be a worse problem than heat once, cool in sealed container then eat cold. You can also use vegetables like carrots, sweet potato, yams, swede etc. If you chop them into reasonable bitesize pieces and add your protein source you get a really nice cold meal. I particularly like sweet potato.

    This!
     
    To make it extra carb heavy and easier to eat, simply put a load of cold lasagne in a wrap and nail it.

    I have the luxury of a kitchen and eat warm chicken and rice everyday but this is a relatively new thing.  I used to put my chicken/tuna in wholemeal pittas or wraps before this.

    The rice will be fine if cooled and stored properly - that's key.
     
    As soon as you've cooked it get it under the cold tap and cooled down, then in the fridge to eat.

    Yep and keep it in a sealed tupperware container in your cool bag until you eat it. Fine like that.
