Moonlighting as the Husband’s secretary at the clinic is forcing me to re-discovering my lunch packin’ roots.
You see, when I was first figuring out how to be an adult/work in the ‘real world’/be healthy/stop spending wads of cash at Panera, I had to learn how to pack meals. I worked in an office that was 30 minutes away from my house and would go to a gym that was next to my office in the mornings. So, everyday, I walked into the office with a packed breakfast and a packed lunch.
On Monday mornings, I would go to the grocery store on my way to work and purchase 5 different fruits and a box of granola bars. These snacks provided me with mid-morning and mid-afternoon options all week, and I didn’t have to worry about packing anything.
I started to work from home about 4 years ago and haven’t really had to regularly pack lunches since. So I’m rediscovering the joy of packing lunch.
Soup is always a good option! I heated some of Amy’s No-Chicken Chicken Noodle soup before I left and put it in a Thermos so it stayed warm.
I brought two slices of whole wheat bread and roasted Brussel sprouts. They were a little cold but that’s okay with me. 🙂
The whole picture:
Back to work I go!
