One of the things I’ve been working on lately is eating out less.
At my old job, I worked out 10 minutes from home, so I went home for lunch 95% of the time. I never had to worry about packing a lunch. Life was good.
Unfortunately, I don’t have that luxury anymore. This might sound whiny, but it’s a pain in the butt to pack a lunch every day. Something always seems to happen…
1. I forget to pack it
2. I don’t know what to make
3. I pack it, but leave it at home
4. I pack it, bring it, but don’t want it
Yep, I have lunch issues.
Yesterday, I had absolutely no desire to eat my sandwich and fixin’s, which is what I pretty much have every day, so
I decided to go out!
Chicken tacos beats a turkey sandwich right?
I think its great to go out every once and awhile, but I’m going to try and keep it down to once a week. All of those meals add up and it gets expensive! I’m also the type of person that like to know what actually goes into my food (most of the time).
I’m also going to try and pack more of a variety for lunch instead of having the same thing every day. I’m in a rut because I can make a peanut butter and jelly or turkey and cheese sandwich in two minutes, throw in some fruit and chips, and call it a day.
Please send me some packed lunch ideas if you have any!
How often do you go out for lunch vs brown bagging it?
