Organizing A Healthy Lunch Routine

I hope many of you enjoyed my post “Organizing A Healthy Household Breakfast Routine” and I hope you try it if you don’t have a routine like that and let me know if it helps make things run smoother in the morning.  It is one of the major components of my daily nutrition plan.   I never miss a breakfast but I also never miss a lunch.  I realized that it wasn’t that I was eating so unhealthy its just I was eating to much of a good thing so I have learned to cut back and re-arrange some things.

You know already how I feel about Flat Outs and they are big part of my routine because they are quick and convenient and they freeze well so you don’t have to worry about them going bad on you either.  If those are not affordable enough for you  another option would be to try a recipe similar to Mr. CBB’s whole Spinach & Wheat tortillas which I have yet to try but plan to soon.

I spend Sunday’s cooking up my food for the work week it doesn’t take me too long however the pay off is huge I feel mentally prepared for the week.

So here is my routine:

One frying pan with 2 tsp. olive oil – 3 chicken breasts
image

Small frying pan with 1 tsp. olive oil – 1 turkey burger

I cook all of these up until they are done and season to taste however I like I usually use Mrs. Dash chipotle seasoning.  I also sometimes cook up a bunch of roasted or pan-fried vegetables in a very tiny amount of olive oil to have for snacks or to supplement lunches that are a little lighter.

Then I cook in another large skillet a big bunch of onions, mushrooms, and peppers…………If I had to guess I would say one huge onion, 12 to 15 mushrooms, and about 8 to 10 small peppers.

I then place about 3 oz. of chicken breast and 1/2 C. sautéed veggies and put them in a plastic container.  When you look at the visual I really eat a lot and very well each week…lots of good healthy items although one of the containers I keep peppers, mushrooms, and onions in the fridge for omelettes etc.. for the entire family.

I take that container and a flat out to work and then I just place the meat and veggies on the flat out wrap and I heat up in the microwave.  I often sprinkle 1/4 C. reduced fat cheddar cheese on top its delicious and if I am really motivated I will pack some salsa and some greek yogurt to top it all off!

Have a great day I hope you enjoyed seeing how I do my lunch routine and I am always happy to share other ideas you have for me.  This week because I was very busy this weekend I am mostly eating leftovers so I do mix things up from time to time.  If you are new to putting a healthy routine together like this you might just want to try it for one week and see how you like it!  I love feeling better myself and I feel like I have more energy every day.

Fondly,

    1. Thanks Anna! I do save a lot by packing everyday however I can’t brag about that because I don’t have a choice I work for the school system and we can’t leave the building anyway. However I used to pack healthy frozen dinners and also junk and chips and I could not lose weight so these flat outs with some veggies and protein do work 🙂 Glad you stopped in!

I Love Hearing From All Of You! Thanks for sharing!
