Taking my lunch to work is always a struggle for me. I get the benefits- it's cheaper, it's healthier than eating fast food from the food court every day, and it makes me more mindful of what I'm eating. I've tried coming up with ways to eliminate the 'barriers' or excuses to not bring my lunch since I started my new job, and I'm happy to say that I've packed a lunch at least 4 times a week since the middle of February. In fact, there's been only 3 days that I've bought lunches.
I like to sleep in, so I've started making lunches at night.
I bought a cute lunch bag and some practical-sized reusable containers.
I mark my calendar with a little pink dot for every day that I bring lunch. It's like a gold star.
The only problem is that I'm bored with my lunches. I usually bring either a frozen dinner, leftovers, or canned soup. Last week I had a 'nibbly' lunch with pita and hummus, fruit and some crackers - but I am totally out of insipiration.
Does anyone have any great lunch ideas?
I've used my crockpot on the weekend to make a week's worth of chili before, and that was handy, but I'm kind of sick of chili.
