I pack my lunch to take to work every day. I have my mini frozen meals in the freezer. They are really just leftovers from the nutritious meals I have cooked at home. This week I ate fiesta soup, black beans & rice and lasagna casserole. I pack some veggies, a piece of fruit, and a treat to go with my entree. The treat could be a few animal crackers or a cup of low cal pudding, etc. Usually about 350-450 calories for lunch for me.
I have an insulated lunch bag and the frozen entree keeps the rest of my lunch cold til noon.
Eating sugar snap peas instead of chips or other high carb snacks has helped me stay on track to healthy eating. Using a scale and portion control has taught me to serve healthy portions not just serve.
using 1 cup containers to pack for lunch is key to portion control for lunch too.
Wanting a "NON-diet tasting" snack, I tried the Hunts Vanilla Sugar Free premade pudding. It lacked something, so I added a tiny bit of Vietnamese Cinnamon, and it reminded me of a rice pudding. And only 60 calories!4
