Bag of Health & Wealth


June 16, 2013

The time is 12:36 and I just sat down for a short break to enjoy my lunch.TakeaLunch

With a plastic fork I begin my meal, which by the way was last nights dinner.  And, I am happy to have it again today.  Fact is, I’d prefer to walk down the block and order a pizza, hot sandwich, Vietnamese dish, or even a big bag of candy!  But, I know that is truly a bad idea.  This lunch is paid for already, healthy, and made with love.

Here is another opinion of mine … save your money and pack your lunch!  There are a couple of really good reasons, one of which is that it helps to trim the waistline.  For certain, any lunch that I pack from my house is far healthier for me than a ‘fast food’ or processed delight.  The foods that I pack are wholesome and digestion-friendly.  More importantly,  these meals will be calorie balanced so I don’t pack on unwanted pounds.  Another very nice bonus of the brown bag meal is that it has been paid for already.  If I get a little crazy (or lazy) and have a pizza, I will be spending $8-$11 on average.  Almost any other lunch would also run $10 or more.  Plus, there are just too many options to spend money on for lunch. How do you decide?  Occasionally I think it is not only a treat  to eat lunch out, but critical when time enters the equation.  When we set our minds and plan ahead, the brown bag is the way to go.  Not only for good health and energy but for the expense too. Mathematically, 2 to 3 times a week – 10 to 12 times a month, 10 to 12 months a year, that accounts for up to $750 to $1,580 annually to my budget.  Not to mention the fat!  And that is just me … Ouch!  Additional family members just compile the spending.

So again tonight we will package leftovers into “to-go” containers for tomorrow. Now if I can save money and calories … that is a win-win!

In good health,
