|Those are Llamas on my lunch bag|
I bring my lunch. I used to eat their salads but between the dressing choices and the lack of vegetables in the salad, I prefer to pack and carry.
The other day one of my staff bought her lunch, trying for the healthiest choice on the menu she could find: sliced turkey and American cheese on a white bread roll with mustard instead of mayo plus sweet pickle salad (very sweet) and apple wedges instead of fries. If I skipped the bread, the cheese and the sweet pickle salad I could have had that lunch. It would have cost me $9.50 for slices of turkey and a cut up apple.
Instead I brought non fat Greek yogurt with a scoop of no sugar/no soy protein powder, fresh blackberries, walnuts and a banana on the side. It was delicious. In the winter I have the fresh berries and in the hot season I keep my yogurt cold by using fresh home frozen berries. It took only 2 minutes to prepare and cost less than $2.50. I saved enough to buy that grande decaf in the photo.
There is no drawback to carrying my own lunch to work when I plan a lunch that is simple and travels easy. Who says lunch on the go can only be a sandwich or a fast food meal?
Not me and not you!
