Breakfast and Lunch Ideas for Work
I know a lot of you have discovered great low point breakfast and lunch ideas. I would love for you all to share what you eat at work as well as your low point snack ideas.
This is what works for me...
Breakfast- there is nothing more portable than a hard boiled egg. I cook 4-5 of them on Sunday and keep them refrigerated. Each morning I take one egg and a piece of fruit with me to work for breakfast for a 3 to 4 point breakfast, depending on the fruit. I also have oatmeal, oatmeal shakes or Greek yogurt with nuts and fruit to switch it up so I don't get bored.
Lunch- in the winter I refrigerate or freeze my leftover soups in individual disposable containers portioned out. You can write the points on the container with a marker so you remember. I also bring leftovers from the night before because I always cook extra for dinner. I pack fruit for snacks and trust me, if you're not a fruit person, when you are hungry you will be so happy you brought it. You can also buy 1 point bread or sandwich thins and make sandwiches. Use mustard in place of mayo or buy light mayo if you must. Load your sandwich with lean chicken or turkey and lots of veggies. There are also a few 1 point wraps I like to use. Low carb wraps are usually lower in points and higher in fiber than whole wheat wraps so check your labels when you shop.
I look forward to hearing your low point ideas!
