Day 3- Eating healthy at work

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

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!

    Batch cooking makes this surprisingly easy. That way, even if you've forgotten to prep, you have a pot of soup in the fridge to pour from, yogurt, precut veggies and salad fixings, and fruit on the counter: all of it ready to get tossed into your bag in under 5 minutes, even if not pre-portioned!

(disclaimer: I literally wake up 1/2 an hour before I have to BE at work, so this is my daily regime)

    Food prep the night before is so important! That is one of my big goals for this year too!
