Let’s be honest: no one likes packing a lunch. It’s much easier to grab something from the local deli, or swing by a drive-thru on the way to the job site. Even though it’s tougher, here are a few reasons why you should consider packing a lunch this week:
Skipping take-out means less processed foods and refined sugars.
The possibilities when packing your own lunch are limitless. Don’t feel like you have to pack a sandwich- pasta, stir-fry, and stew are all delicious options.
You’d be surprised how quickly take-out and drive-thru prices can add up. Packing your own lunch is a much cheaper option.
Cook Once, Eat Twice
Cook extra at dinner time to have a ready-made lunch for the following workday. Don’t feel like the same thing? Reinvent it! Chicken dinner can be easily transformed into chicken sandwiches or wraps.
More Lunch Time Down Time
Packing your own lunch means not having to rush out to buy food. Instead, you can use your lunch time to enjoy your meal, and gear up the last half of the day.
When you pack your lunch, you get to choose how much you want to eat. This results in less wasted food. Bonus: if you eat leftovers from supper, you’re saving money and wasting less.
Having your lunch pre-made and ready to go means less travel time, less rushing, and less stress.
