How To: Pack a Healthy Lunch
Good morning everyone!
Today I am going to show you all an example of a super healthy lunch I packed yesterday for my 8-6 babysitting job. This literally took me 10 minutes to throw together. Keep in mind, I knew there would be a fridge, and I would have time to cook (the zucchini). If I had a 9-5 office job, I would have altered things a bit 🙂
Green Juice that I made yesterday! I had this for breakfast
If you don’t have a juicer, you could always use a blender and make your favorite smoothie! Those are great to take with you, as long as they are wrapped in a paper towel with a rubber band around it 😉 They tend to get a little wet!
2 yummy things already prepared:
The other half of my curry from last nights dinner
Non-fat greek yogurt with organic, local honey + pomegranate seeds
Ice pack goes in the middle & is held up by ledges on the side of the container. It doesn’t smash the underneath food 🙂
A zucchini from our garden, half an avo, + fresh sprouts
I was going to make a sandwich and take it with me, but, we were all out of bread. Plus, the zucchinis from our garden are so good I didn’t mind cooking on up again!
I also brought some almonds to snack on.
An organic crunchy fuji apple (the best apples ever)
And last but not least, Just Sliced Mangos. No added sugar, and great for a sweet tooth!
Sometimes, when I get to the house, I end up eating a couple yummy things that I find, and leaving some of my things behind. This was the case yesterday when I found nuts that included dark chocolate.
Dark chocolate and nuts? Or raw almonds? Hmmm…. I think I’ll go with the dark chocolate and nuts!
Raw almonds went back to the cupboard! Along with 1/2 the avo I brought, and sprouts. No use for sprouts. Maybe I’ll get to use em tomorrow 😉
I also snacked on some more nuts & half a peach during our tea party
And later, a candy bar. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip LB 😉
Question of the day:
How do you pack a lunch?
