Make a Plan to Pack Ahead

january 2012 lunchesI cannot say it or write it enough, packing lunch the night before is the key for my lunch packing success.

My routine is to make a meal on the weekend and portion it into Pyrex and then stack it with the rest of my lunch items. Since I buy yogurt and applesauce in large containers rather than individual packs, I portion it into the 1-cup Pyrex.

When I come home from work, I empty my lunch bag and re-pack it with another lunch. I’ve previously mentioned the lack of food around my workplace is the reason I do not take any chances on not making the effort to plan ahead. Some people would grow tired of eating the same thing five days in a row, but I’ve grown used to it knowing I can have variety in my dinners.

My entree is a new chili recipe and if I like, I’ll share it later on the blog.

    I like what you said about getting variety in your dinner. Makes me view my boring lunches a little differently.

      That’s the spirit! My mom is the type who makes a little extra at each dinner so it becomes lunch the next day, but I don’t think she calls them leftovers because that name just isn’t fun!
