Brown Bag Your Lunch

Lunchtime can be stressful – trying to fit in food during a busy workday can often mean greasy pizza from the cafeteria or grabbing a loaded sandwich from the nearby deli to eat at your desk. Not knowing what you’ll have for lunch everyday before you leave the house is an easy recipe for a lunchtime calorie disaster.

Your daily game plan: Avoid the food court, and pack a brown bag lunch instead. We love Warner’s simple, portable (and yummy) veggie sandwich: stuff two pieces of whole-grain bread with ¼ of a medium avocado, sliced, 1 cup of sprouts, ½ cup of fresh spinach, 1 slice of a beefsteak tomato and one tablespoon of mustard – all for only 227 calories. Ditch the high fat, topping loaded salad bar lunch and swap in this nutrition-packed sandwich instead to save, on average, 500 calories a day, or over four pounds this month.
