Well, today was my last day as a student. I can’t believe the day is finally here, but I am a little sad — I’ve been in school my entire life and now that it’s done it feels a little unreal. I have that scared/nervous feeling that now I have to be an “adult” and go make something of my life! I’m sure it will sink in pretty soon.
Anyway, the purpose of this post is now that I am out of school, I really want to revamp my eating at home plan. Gone are the days where I need to grab lunch on the way to school or pick up a quick bite on the way home. Planning dinner has gotten easier, and I seem to be doing fine with finding things to make that are delicious and easy — and points plus friendly.
My trouble is with lunch. Lunch is the time when my cravings hit hard for fast food, and I don’t exercise self-control. I am tired of the boring sandwiches, that let’s face it, don’t taste as good as Subway. I just don’t know what to do for lunch. My entire life, lunch was it’s own meal — meaning, I didn’t eat dinner leftovers for lunch, we had those again for dinner during the week! Now that I have grown up that way, it transferred into my adult life and I don’t reach for “dinner” leftovers. I know that must sound pretty dumb, but I guess it’s something I have to work on.
I need some ideas! What are some food items that you make for lunch? I might try wraps, salads or refreshing items, but I also want to find things that will help satisfy me as I wean off of the convenience foods this summer.
