We are creatures of habit, right? Routines help add some semblance of order to our chaotic lives that consist of responsibilities to ourselves, our families and our jobs. In addition to providing order these routines also let us put some activities on autopilot - does anyone pay much attention while washing dishes? Yeah, neither do I. A couple months ago I set a goal to plan ahead and pack lunch at least 3 days of the work week in an effort to eat better and save some money.
For the record, there is a Chipotle directly beneath my office and as long as I avoid the lunch rush I can be back at my desk in less than 10 minutes with a salad bowl. This option isn't bad as far as healthy eating options go and it's pretty convenient, but it wasn't the best thing for my wallet. So I developed a system to help ensure that I bring meals at least three times a week. For the most part I've been successful because I have stuck with my system of cooking one or two lunches at a time and bringing them to work the next day in tupperware containers. Whenever I get hungry I have the option of a banana, yogurt or some meat and veggie mix to choose from. I've been doing this for long enough where I don't really have to think about what to buy at the market and I usually cook the next day's food while I'm making dinner. This kind of prep work is Paleo 101 but it's pretty important for really dialing in the diet and making better choices.
