I didn't really feel like cooking today and making an elaborate lunch. So, using my handy-dandy Laptop Lunch kit, I was able to construct a cute, healthy lunch with minimal effort.
Healthy Choice Lunch Steamers Honey Balsamic Chicken
Cottage cheese - Jello desert
Carrots w/ greek ranch dip
Viola! I won't be able to eat all of this at one sitting, and I already have some tuna at work in the fridge to add for another meal. I eat 2 meals + a snack at work. For my snack I usually have some pretzels and a string cheese.
I really don't like to eat frozen dinners out of their container. It doesn't seem like real food if I do that. I always transfer it to something else to make it seem more like a meal. I spoke with my RD about eating frozen dinners, and she said that while I shouldn't eat them every day, there is no reason why I can't have them here and there. We talked about convenience factors, and she agreed that as long as I am not eating them for every meal, they are fine. I really like Healthy Choice and Lean Cuisine. Smart Ones are ok, but not as good. Plus, I also usually get 2 meals out of one regular sized dinner.
When it comes down to it, anyone that has followed my blogs, knows I like to cook my own food 90% of the time. Sometimes, I just don't feel like it....
I think that is all for now!
