Eat– for Good Health

Packing up a lunch box isn’t just for kids.  I make one for my husband, a CPA with his own practice, everyday.  After dear heart goes to the gym at 11 a.m. to beat the crowd, he appreciates the convenience of a lunch ready in his office refrigerator, prepared by moi.  Whenever I substitute teach, I bring my lunch.  I’m too busy reading over the regular teacher’s lesson plans to buy a lunch in the school cafeteria.  So that we stay energized and healthy throughout the afternoon, I use dietary guidelines when preparing a boxed lunch.  Here are some of our favorites:  1). Chef’s salad made with (all low-fat, reduced salt products) 1 slice turkey, 1 slice ham, and one slice cheese (all cubed) served over mixed greens with 1/2 cup chickpeas and mandarin oranges with a plain mini whole grain bagel.  2). Fruit salad with yogurt, whole grain cereal with added (raw unsalted) sunflower seeds in a resealable container.  3). Whole grain tortilla wrap made with lean deli roast beef and light provolone with an apple.  4) Cored apple stuffed with peanut butter and (crunchy) Kashi GoLean cereal with added raisins.  Cut apple into rings.  Carton of non-fat milk and a graham cracker square.

    Mary Alice, if you like it, and it’s a healthy combo, there is nothing wrong with that. You get lots more food variety at dinner.

    Usually Rob calls before he goes to lunch because he stops at the store and puts groceries in a cooler in the trunk of his car!
