I had a coupon for a free adult lunch combo from Oscar Mayer so I picked one out.
Just looking at the nutritional information I knew I was making a mistake, 390 calories for this this and I’d probably eat a fruit or vegetable with it, plus probably another fruit or vegetable afternoon snack so I wouldn’t eat my arm at 3pm.
Not to mention much look at how much waste these combos create because each sandwich item is in shrink wrap packing, inside a plastic tray wrapped in a cardboard sleeve (not shown). What’s shown in the photo is just the trash from assembling the sandwich. Then, there was a jello cup, plastic spoon and snack bag wrapper.
But I understand the appeal of these products and I mentioned it on of the first articles I linked to (22 Healthy Lunch Ideas) when this blog was started. It’s not the nutrition, it’s the convenience but that’s where creating a lunch packing plan can help.
