Spoil Yourself At Lunch With Multiple Courses At Every Meal....

Do not grab the prepackaged 100 calorie packs or granola bars or a can of soup for your lunch. These options may be easy but do not base your diet around them. Ignoring for a moment all the info that says that processed stuff is unhealthy, or at a minimum fresh is better, eating packaging "stuff" is not a lifestyle...it is not maintainable. For instance, can you imagine everyday for the rest of your life eating your lunch out of a packet? That's what eating packaged stuff really boils down to.
Instead, most days, make yourself a nice lunch with multiple courses. Pack a salad or fresh veggies, homemade soup and a piece of fruit. You will never feel deprived, it is sustainable for the rest of your life, and it is like a treat compared to a baggies full of wheat thins for the same calories!!

If you will be using the same vegetables or fruits for multiple meals, wash and cut them up all at the same time. It will save you from repeating yourself for each following meal and you'll only have to clean up once.
This approach works better for those vegetables and fruits that do not wilt, discolor or become mushy while stored.
If you rinse shower/tub at end of every one, you will save yourself a lot of scrubbing! I still disinfect, of course, but the heavy scrubbing is much less!!! Unless, of course, you enjoy that as your exercise!! (wink)
