Liza wrote an article last week about getting stuck in food ruts and I could definitely relate!! I tend to pack the same thing over and over again, and then when I get bored I skip the packed lunch and over-indulge at an expensive, fattening restaurant.
That nasty habit has to stop, for the sake of my waistline and my wallet!
So I put together a list of ideas for lunches---nothing fancy or gourmet, but easy things that will help me stay out of over-priced restaurants.
Extras to throw in: fruit, low-fat yogurt, cheese stick, pretzels, or a small piece of really good dark chocolate.
The key is to pack items that you know you like and will look forward to eating, so you can resist the urge to go out. Aim for a lean protein, at least one serving of veggies and one serving of fruit, a low-fat dairy product, and some whole grains.
