I just had a glass of milk, an apple, and a peanut butter bar for lunch. I would love to say that it’s because it’s Friday and the cupboards are bare, but I’m afraid this has become a bit of a BAD habit for me lately. In fact, the milk and apple were an improvement over past days, where a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup or a Swiss Cake roll has attempted to pass as lunch. But today, with a burning stomach and a sluggish feeling, I proclaim here and now that I HAVE HAD ENOUGH!
I plan dinner and shop for dinners, the hubs gets his lunch things and the kids eat at school but I never plan on anything more than left overs for myself, and lately, there haven’t been many of those! Well no more! Now I will plan lunch menus for myself! I will purchase the items I need for my lunch without guilt, which is usually what has stopped me from doing this in the past. It’s silly! What good am I to the family if I’m not well fueled?
I’m posting this menu here on the blog so that I have to be accountable to my promise to take better care of me. After all if I tell all of you I’m going to do this then I have to do this right? But more than that, I cannot imagine that I am the only one in this boat. Judging from the number of pins I see on Pinterest for healthy lunches, I KNOW I’m not alone in this one. So, by posting these lunch menus here, I’m not only making good on my comittment to a healthier me, I’m looking to inspire YOU too!
So, without further ado, here are my lunch pics for the coming week:
Monday: Tuna and Tomato Melt, Orange
Tuesday: Peanut Butter on Toast, Salad, Cottage Cheese and Apple
Wednesday: Shrimp Wrap, Salad with Craisins, Feta Cheese, and Almond Slivers, 1/2 Banana
Thursday: Grilled Apple & Goat Cheese Sandwich, Mixed Veggies and Hummus
Friday: Marinated Chicken Pita Sandwich, Cottage Cheese, Veggies and Orange Slices
Let’s Do Lunch!
