Packing For Work
  • Tip 1: Juice fruits & veggies and take it to work as a morning snack or even for lunch, that is, if you have a refrigerator at work. However, if you buy a S'well insulated bottle, it will stay cold all day. Juice: 2 apples, 1 orange or 2 oranges, 1 piece of ginger, 4-5 kale leaves (any kind of kale). 

  • Tip 2: Cut up fruits and veggies as snacks.

  • Tip 3: Make soups (bean, potato, veggie soups, chili, red beans/rice) on the weekends or evenings, freeze in small glass lock containers (and label them with a permanent marker on the glass.  When leaving for work, grab a container from the freezer. That way, by the time you are ready for lunch, it will be partially thawed, easier for microwaving. If you consistently eat beans, eventually your body will get used to the fiber and not react as much.  Caution: Beano contains shellfish.

  • Tip 4: Make a salad the night before and put it in the refrigerator, pre-make a few no oil dressings for the week, then pour dressing in a small leak-proof container and take to work.  The frozen containers will keep things cold in your lunch bag.  

  • Tip 5: Make a taco salad. Put a small hand full of blue corn chips in a little baggy, salsa in a separate container, black beans in a separate container and lettuce in a bag, with a packed fork & bowl and then combine at lunch when you get to work. Pack guacamole too if you want. Caution: Avocados are a high-fat vegetable, so if you're trying to lose weight, you should avoid avocados.

  • Tip 6: Microwave a potato and pour chili and veggies on top of it.

  • Tip 7: Take 1/4 c raw nuts and seeds as a snack for morning/afternoon. Caution: Nuts and seeds are high in fat, so if you are trying to lose weight, you should avoid them. Walnuts are the most heart healthy nut. Studies show, 4 Brazil Nuts per month reduce cholesterol.
