Reasons to Bring Your Lunch to Work

How Often Do You Bring Your Lunch to Work?

lunch at deskI love bringing my lunch to work; it makes me feel organized and on top of things. Brown bagging it not only saves you dough, it saves you calories as well. Isn't the point of leftovers to become salad toppings for lunch the next day? Steamed green beans, extra chicken, that half cup of couscous that no body ate — all these spruce up basic greens. Turning leftovers into salad is a quick way to bring your lunch with you.

I manage to bring my lunch to work about 50 percent of the time (I'm not quite on top things). And you?

Everyday! SOMETIMES I treat myself to a lunch with my mom but we pre-plan that and usually that is once or twice every couple of weeks :)

@sarajeanqueen That is exactly what I bring for lunch! I love a good wheat turkey sammie, almonds and string cheese. :)

@Becky: take your lunch every day for two weeks. You will be SHOCKED at how much weight you lose. It's so much easier. Take a wheat turkey sandwich, a yogurt, string cheese, maybe some almonds or a granola bar... whenever I feel my clothes getting tight, I realize the difference is I've been purchasing lunch and not eating less at night to compensate!!

I take my lunch every day I work. And if I'm at home, I fix my own lunch. When I run errands, I also pack a lunch. I/we rarely eat out. I've found that it's so much quicker and cheaper to fix our own meals. We use the George Foreman grill, the microwave, and my Pampered Chef cookware that really needs no oil in it to cook things in.

Everyday.... I think I've gone out for lunch less than 5 times the entire school year (started in Aug). Last lunch I ate out was McD's oatmeal. Not too bad. I'll either do that or Subway. I've had a happy meal once....when I had a terrible hangover :)

Every single day....but that's also because I eat my lunch at home after work.

As often as possible. That's my biggest diet goal right now is too pack my lunch every day.

I know it's bad but I haven't brought lunch a single time in 4 years. In my defense, it gets me away from my desk and gives me a bit of social time with my co-workers :)

I work 4 days a week and I bring in lunch each day. Its a 2 for me, 1 - I can't afford to buy lunch and breakfast each day and 2 - I don't want to waste the food. It makes sense for me and saves me a few bucks each week.

I have to bring my lunch everyday because there is no other option- So I guess that's a good thing!

i chose half the time and i consider "work" my classes. i have class from 9 to 2:30 on MWF of the week with an hour break at 11:30. this doesnt give me enough time to run to my apt so i usually pack a lunch and eat it in a nice dining area nearby. i dont mind packing my lunch but i do wish i could have access to a microwave so i could have warm things on these chilly days...
