I keep a bag of frozen veggies (usually broccoli or green beans) in the freezer at work. For quick lunches, I grab a frozen entree of Ziti Marinara, Chicken Fettucini, Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes, etc. (I usually use Michelina's Lean brand). At lunch time, I microwave 1 cup of the frozen veggies in a bowl and then my frozen meal. When the meal is thoroughly heated ~ I spoon it over the veggies. This is a great way to "extend" those little 9 ounce meals and get in another serving of veggies!

I really hate doing dishes, so it's so much easier for me to just grab the chip bag out of the cabinet. So now, when I do shopping, I buy plenty of sandwich and snack bags. When I get home and am putting everything away, I put the serving size of the chips and other snacks into the plastic baggies.
I'm always running late for work, so when I'm packing my lunch, it's so easy just to throw the bags in.
