I hope everyone is out enjoying the beautiful sunny weather this weekend while it lasts! 🙂 I went to the beach today and think it might have been one of the last times I go this year…… I know I posted a little while ago about packing kids lunches, but what about packing your own lunch?! I have always tried to pack my lunch at least a few days a week. One because its cheaper then eating out and two because it’s healthy then eating out! 😉 I have a new job where I pack my lunch almost everyday now because the choices for eating out near my work are limited and not very healthy. So I thought I would show you guys some great adult lunch ideas 😉 . I have been “borrowing” my sons bento box because it is so handy with all the compartments for packing a variety of things for lunch. I usually try to plan to take leftovers from dinner to work the next day because it seems to be the easiest. One day I took leftover sushi that I made and it was soooo good. I also packed leftover black rice and tofu with a salad one day…..just be careful with the dressing, my lid wasn’t on tight enough and it leaked all over!
I usually pack a few snacks to get me from breakfast till lunch and lunch till dinner…..what can I say I am always hungry! I like to pack a piece of fruit like an apple, banana or grapes, I also usually pack snacks like almonds, sesame snack bites, flax crackers and hummus or a rice cake with avocado. There are so many healthy foods you can pack, just pick what you like and plan ahead! 😉 Making your own lunch can be fun and easy and it will defiantly benefit your bank account and waist line.
