Planning Ahead – Healthy Eating

Sunday, March 13, 2011

Cooking on the weekends helps me make healthier food choices all week long. This winter I have enjoyed making homemade soups for lunches. I make soup on the weekends. My husband and I enjoy some for dinner and then I pack the leftovers into lunch containers. Making lunches is easy in the morning. I pack soup & salad with a small slice of bread for lunch and also some fruit & nuts for a snack in the afternoon. Making sure I have a bag packed with plenty of healthy options keeps me away from vending machines and other temptations.

The weather was bad today, so I stayed indoors and made soup, bread, pesto & veggie burgers. I freeze the extra burgers for quick meals. They help me stay on track when I am too tired to cook something healthy. Sure, it takes some time to cook on the weekends, but it makes the week so much easier! Usually I just make one recipe, but I got a little carried away today!

What healthy lunches do you like to make?

    One of my favorite things to do is cook some lentils while I'm showering and getting ready in the morning. I love lentils for lunch with a piece of bread or an apple.

    When I cook dinner I usually save some out and put it in the fridge before we eat. Then I'm certain I have leftovers for lunch the next day.

    Veggie burgers sound good. I've never made them myself.
