Pack your lunch 3 times each week

Pack your lunch 3 times each week

Few of us spend lunchtime at home with the comforts of our own fridges and cupboards. Lunch often becomes fast food, to-go orders, or heavy lunches with co-workers. Others skip the meal altogether, settling for an extra-large dinner. Both behaviors can lead to trouble. Instead, plan ahead and pack a healthy lunch at least three times per week--a much healthier alternative to eating out. Packing a lunch is quick and easy, possibly faster than driving to get fast food. A sandwich, a piece of fruit and a bag of veggies is a nutritious meal that takes less than five minutes to prepare. Make a habit of preparing lunch before bed or before work. It's an easy and smart way to improve your diet.
