I found it a little shocking to look back at our sack lunch ideas from just a year and a half ago. I was pregnant at the time, and thought I was eating pretty healthy. Well, I’m happy to say that I don’t eat any of those (processed)
foods things anymore! The only things from that list I still eat on a normal basis are salad, fruit and raisins. So, this post is long overdue.
One other thing hasn’t changed: we still pack our lunches for work every day except Friday, when we enjoy a meal out together. It’s how we balance our need for financial stability, healthy food choices, a mini date during the week (when Roo is at day care), and our love for restaurant meals.
Here’s a revised list of things we keep on hand to bring to work for lunches and snacks. I don’t like to spend a lot of time packing my lunch in the morning, so even though I don’t want to eat processed food, the grab-n-go prepackaged method still works best for me.
