Part of my plan this year is to avoid fast food breakfasts and lunches while at work.
Today I brought scottish oatmeal with apples and raisins, made in the crockpot for breakfast, minestrone and an apple for lunch, and yogurt and a banana for a snack.
The hardest part for me is to prepare ahead of time to have healthy and PACKABLE things on hand when I leave in the morning. I am NOT a morning person, and it's difficult to remember that I need to feed myself when I'm headed out the door.
This year, I am committing to packing my breakfast, snack, and lunch the night before, so that I have no excuses in the morning, when I open the refrigerator, see nothing ready to go, and think "I'll just pick something up". Inevitably, that leads to a quick trip to McDonalds or Taco Bell when I'm too starving to think by lunchtime. Sometimes this even means that I skip breakfast altogether, depending on how busy I am. NOT GOOD!
So, that's the plan. Prepare a breakfast, snack, and lunch each evening so that it'll be ready to go in the morning.
Wish me luck!
