  1. I love it! You’re spot on with your reasoning. I also like the way you eat basically the same things every day for breakfast and lunch. It’s probably one of the best ways to watch your weight too. P.S. I adore PBJ’s too! AND, of course, the occasional Fluffernutter! 🙂

    • You’re right on about routines making it much easier to eat healthy. Well, as healthy as PB&J can be. But I figure if I use natural jams and peanut butter, I’m not in too bad of shape! 🙂

      • I also eat pretty much the same thing for lunch and the another same thing for dinner. I usually spend Sunday prepping and just use up the food during the week. It saves me a lot of money, and I don’t have to wait in long lines to get food. 🙂

  2. I bring lunch to work almost every day for the reasons you mentioned. We do have a caf at work but at $7-10 per lunch depending on what you get, the cost can really add up fast.

    • Our school cafeteria is more affordable that most business/hospital cafeterias…but it’s also middle school cafeteria food. Proceed with caution! 😉

  3. I brown bag it, too, but I do struggle to say no when I am asked to go out, because of the social aspect. I did find that people are often willing to eat packed lunches with you if you say you’re saving money and making advance plans. Usually, for me, the invitation comes when the person has forgotten their lunch, so it doesn’t work. We don’t have to drive to food, though. It’s directly across the street.

  5. PREACH. I bring my lunch almost every day, and it’s almost always leftovers or a homemade salad or sandwich. Saves me time and money, and I can eat it while catching up on blogs instead of waiting in line at a restaurant.

    • Oh my gosh, yes! You’re so right, Piggy. We only have 35 minutes for lunch, so I never really understand the point of driving somewhere and then waiting around!

  6. I bring my lunch as well and sometimes when people ask and I say I brought lunch they ask are you sure you don’t want to come? I just said I brought lunch! I don’t think I could be clearer about what I’m eating but I try and be polite because I don’t like eating lunch out. There aren’t very good food options by my office and anything I bring is much tastier anyway.
