*Winner Announced*  Congratulations to comment # 7, belonging to Alesha!  

Thank you all for your helpful and fun lunch-able comments!  I can’t wait to get started with the new Pack Your Lunch series!

If you are guilty of too much unhealthy fast food for lunch and adding on loads of unnecessary calories, I’m here to help!  Packing a healthy lunch doesn’t have to be difficulty and can be quick and easy to prepare.

Packing a healthy lunch for work just requires a little bit of planning ahead and organization.  I’m psyched to announce a new series entitled Pack Your Lunch, where I will be offering you a variety of healthy lunch ideas and recipes.

When you’re considering what to take to work for your lunch, plan ahead when you grocery shop and when you’re cooking dinner.  Always make a little extra and prepare your lunch first, before the fam has a chance to devour it all.  When I take leftovers, I’ll put my lunch in a bowl to the side and allow it to cool while we are actually eating dinner.  Then when it’s time for clean up, it’s usually cooled enough by then and all I have to do is add it to my lunch box.

Packing your lunch also requires the right containers.  I’ve found that the easier and more convenient things are for us, the more likely we are to keep it up.

And to get you started and prepared for packing healthy lunches, I’m giving away a set of these three Stay Fit containers!  Included in the set is a divided dish with a freezable lid and storage for eating utensils, a salad bowl with a separate toppings dish and dressing cup and a soup mug!  Love!!

To enter the give a way, simply leave me a comment below telling me what your favorite healthy lunch choice is to pack on the go!

You may enter a second time by doing one of the following:  Blog, Tweet or Facebook about this giveaway and include the link in your comment.

I’ll choose a random winner next Tuesday, 2/21 at 6 p.m. (central time).

Happy Luvvv Day!

  1. I love to pack a banana, cereal, and skim milk. A great energy booster! And sometimes, baked crackers and reduced fat cheese. Mmmmm!

  3. Pat Dixon says:

    I don’t often have to pack a lunch any more since I am retired. 🙂 However, I do take a lunch sometimes when I go to Mobile. Then, I take a sandwich, some “healthy” crackers, yogurt, cheese, and/or some fruit and nuts.

  4. Excited about your new Pack Your lunch series! Not only do I eat healthier when I pack my lunch but I save a ton of cash! I don’t have access to a microwave and I get tired of sandwiches and wraps.. I need some healthy cold lunch ideas!

  5. I pack a salad every.single.night. that I work. If I don’t have the salad- i’m a monster. that and an apple 🙂 these boxes would be perfect for me to use!!! by the way- i’m a nurse too. hospital food is the pitts, which explains why i’m a monster if I don’t pack my own lunch…

  6. i have to pack a lunch for work and my usual is a sandwich, apple, and 100 calorie pack of cheezeits! sometimes i bring applesauce, or grapes, or baby carrots & hummus!

  7. I get bored with the same thing all the time so I try to change it up. I will often steam a variety of veggies. Carrots, potatoes, zucchini, squash, onions, kale, etc. Delicious and filling!

  8. Melinda M says:

    Hummus with carrots and celery, Pb & J sandwiches, grapes, pretzals, wraps.

  9. Sorry Melinda….I guess I was posting the winner as you were commenting. Thanks for your lunch-able suggestion though! I love hummus, but my family hides it from me when I buy it. 😉
