For the last two years I have faithfully packed my lunch at least 4days a week with a treat day on Fridays (not anymore!) while Hubs would randomly take a leftover dinner but more often than not would eat out for lunch. That boy metabolism is convenient when he can pack it away....but not so convenient on the pocket book.
Around November he started to realize how much $$ was being spent on his lunches and how his body was reacting to eating out so often. Insert the wonderful wife here.
It all started with him making a pot of lentils for himself (remember, he's the better cook between us!) and taking that for lunch three times a week. Then I gently nudged him into adding a protein to round it out.....which evolved into 'sharing' my prepped salad to give him a full meal.
And now here we are with a full on meal prep Sunday for him in addition to my own.
So 'In his bag' this week?
Lemon Pepper chicken breasts
Roasted broccoli and onions / rotated with zucchini corn medley
Green salad / rotated with vinegar cucumbers
No need to share what was in 'my bag' since it is the same as always
being a green salad with a rotation of turkey breast, tuna, or diced chicken.
but I took pictures of both of ours anyway to show our 'his and hers' this week.
Any other fabulous ideas for lunch prep out there? Don't be selfish, share with me!
