I know a lot of people think that they don’t have enough time to pack a lunch everyday but it is totally possible. All it takes is a little bit of planning, like deciding to pack tomorrow’s lunch before going to bed tonight. It may be inconvenient now but it’s a lifesaver in the morning.
Everyday I pack a lunch. It helps me save money and time (I don’t have to run out looking for lunch) and allows me to eat healthy during the day because I control what goes into my lunch bag. Plus, I honestly think I would get bored eating Subway/Jimmy Johns/Potbelly everyday .
note: ugliest lunch bag ever… but it was dirt cheap at CVS
Unfortunately, Ian and I haven’t gone grocery shopping in awhile, so packing lunches has taken a creative side (I’m hoping we can make a trip Wednesday night). On the menu for tomorrow, a peanut butter and raisin tortilla, “baked apples” and yogurt, and 2 clementines.
First up, I spread Bee’s Knee’s peanut butter on a tortilla, added some raisins, and then ground some sugar, chocolate, and coffee beans over everything.
Next I cut up half of an apple, covered it in cinnamon, and microwaved it for 1:15.
I packed it in a mug with Press ‘n Seal wrap because I need to take a mug to work anyway.
In total this took me 5 minutes to put together. Not bad right?
What are your lunch go-tos?
For dinner tonight I had a remix of yesterday’s Prickly Pear.
I mixed some corn into rice and then stacked the beans on top of the rice and the relleno on top of the beans. I also poured some Enchilada Verde sauce and Habenero Lime Salsa on top (both Trader Joe’s products).
Dare I say it was better than at the restaurant?
What was your weekend highlight?
