Lose Weight by Bringing These 10 Homemade Lunches to Work


Save money and calories while making your co-workers jealous

Frittatas are the ideal lunch option: They can be made ahead of time, they last a few days in the refrigerator, and they can be eaten at room temperature.

Lunch propels you through the second half of the workday, but grabbing an Italian sub with a bag of potato chips or a burger and fries will take a toll on your energy level, waistline, and wallet. In order to save money (and calories), start bringing your lunch to work instead.

Prepping lunches at home the night before, on top of making dinner, may seem like a daunting chore, but it doesn’t have to be. Use quick-cooking ingredients such as shrimp, tofu, canned salmon, or even a store-bought rotisserie chicken to expedite the process. Use these basic proteins on top of a salad or as the foundation of a sandwich. Other factors to consider when making a homemade lunch are: is it easy to assemble; is it easy to eat; is it transportable; and does it taste good at cold or at room temperature? Also, if you want to avoid passive-aggressive glances from your co-workers, try to refrain from bringing any severely odorous foods. Save that steamed broccoli with tuna fish for dinner.

Eating a proper, nutritious lunch sets the rest of your day up for a success. Leaving work full and satisfied rather than ravenously hungry leads to controlled dinner portions and fewer late-night trips to the snack cabinet.
