Friends, I’ve discovered a very very important new thing.
You can bring your lunch to work.
It’s a radical new concept, I realize, but guess what – it saves you time, it saves you money… AND it’s typically the healthier option.
One morning a week or so ago we had a random delay for a snow day. Because my super awesome Jesus loving job takes into consideration your safety… and calls snow delays. Have I mentioned my job rocks?
Anywho – I still go up at my alarm (fine – a few snoozes after my alarm) and had plenty of free time. I made some coffee, I showered, I curled my hair… AND I PREPARED A LUNCH.
I got out the skillet – I cooked a turkey burger, sliced up a tomato, avocado, some mushrooms and a red onion and threw it in a Tupperware on a bed of spinach.
And kids, it was delightful.
Well, if we’re being honest – I’d also thrown in some bacon bits – because – they make EVERYTHING better, but by the time I ate it, they were soggy. And soggy bacon bits lose a bit of their magical powers, you know? So – word to the wise – don’t leave bacon bits in a container with moist (yikes – I know) things. Lesson learned.
So if you’ve got an extra 20 minutes in your morning – I vote for you to use some time really preparing your lunch because:
- It makes you feel SUPER fancy at work.
- It gives you the warm fuzzies.
- Your co-workers are bound to be impressed.
- It’s GOT to be better for your waist line than another trip to Chick-fil-A!
If you have other quick/easy-to-make lunch ideas – shoot them my way! I’d love to try them!!
