I'm relatively new to this team and I have to say I love reading your menus for lunches. It's giving me a few new ideas to try. I still have to get the books but the cooler ideas are great! Thanks!

I don't work out side the home, but when I go, and just need a snack I can take things like:
-Apple
-2 Tbsp Almonds
-Orange
-Hard boiled egg

If I need something more substantial my favorite is 1-banana, 2 tbsp-fat free plain yogurt, 2 tbsp-flax seed, and 1/4 C-raisins. I put the flax in a separate container and mix when I'm ready to eat.

I'm very interested in what every one is packing for their cooler.
I usually take:
an apple,
an orange,
raw cauliflower(240 g),
or a section of cabbage(240 g),
chicken breast 75 grams)
3 Boiled eggs (I'm eating only one yolk)
I change up fruits seasonally a bit... for the most part it's the same everyday, it makes it easy for me.
I'd like some new ideas on what works for you.

A couple of suggestions for fast and easy cooler packing:

Spend some time on the weekend and package up veggies into small ziploc bags in 4 oz (or whatever your portion is) size servings. Then you just have to grab a bag or two and throw them in your cooler without having to weight & measure every day.

Also on a day off, take the time to make up a pot of rice and a batch of oatmeal, then reheat them during the week. If you haven't already tried this recipe, the baked Caledon Oatmeal in the Eat Clean cookbook is fantastic!

eating clean is a struggle for me. but this weekend my husband and I did all our prep for the week ahead.

in my cooler today I have
- slices of cantalop
- 2 hard boiled eggs
- left over curried chicken and veg with couscous
- almonds
- bag of veggies (carrot, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, green pepper)
- oranges wedges (easier/faster to eat when I cut it up the night before)

last night we also made a chicken and veg soup to add to lunches the nights we don't have leftovers for the next day.

Everything happens for a reason!

I usually pack about 3 pieces of fruit, a hard boiled egg, 1 Tbl of organic peanut butter, 2 ak-mok crackers or 2 wasa crackers for snacks. I also will take a salad or bowl of soup for lunch and a 3 oz piece of chicken. I cook 1-2 lb of chicken cut into 3 oz portions and freeze in advance. I might also add 1/2 cup brown rice if made. I get to work from home tomorrow so I'll do this all from the fridge and not worry about the cooler.

Today, may I make good decisions that create positive outcomes and may I have wonderful, loving people in my life to share this awesome journey with.

Here is my plan for tomorrow. Carrying a four-compartment lunch jar and two lock and lock snack cups.

Breakfast: Two snack cups, one with rolled oats and flaxseed, one with unsweetened applesauce. I eat at work, so I just add water to the oats and mix in the applesauce.

Mid-Morning Snack: No break tomorrow, so I'll have to skip it. I might manage a mini-box of raisins on my way to playground duty (I am a teacher) but I am seldom hungry at morning recess.

Lunch: Two of my lunch jar containers, a large and a small. Large: Brown rice, baked tofu. Small: a vegetable, have not decided with one yet :)

Afternoon Snack: Two of my lunch jar containers, a large and a small. I like snacking in the afternoon for some reason, so I will be splitting it and having one when I finish teaching and one before I leave school. One of them, the large container, will be a sliced grapefruit. The other will be cucumber slices and egg slices.

Dinner: I will be home for this. I am tutoring tomorrow night so I will not have time to cook. I am setting up a stew in the crockpot before I leave home. I'll have that, a salad and some steamed vegetables, probably brussels sprouts.

Evening: If I want to munch on something, I'll make some tea, or maybe a home-made cup-a-soup (handful of shredded veggies, tsp of whole-grain couscous nd teaspoon of shredded vegetables)
