Hello, I'm Dr. Theresa Ramsey for ehow.com, and we're going to talk about healthy inexpensive lunches for work. So let's pack a lunch. The first thing we want to always think about when we're packing our lunch is our water. If we forget our water we tend to become dehydrated. So it's the first thing we want to pack. We want to pack the amount of water that it equal to our weight in ounces of water per day. So if we weigh a hundred pounds we want to take a hundred ounces if we're active. So we want to put that into our bag first. Always bring along a cup that has a straw because you tend to drink more of it. We'll just use those to fill it up. Another thing that's nice to bring is homemade soups. You can make soups up ahead of time, freeze them in your mason jars, any kind of soup you like. Warm it up and put it into your thermos and it's ready to go for work. We put that in with our waters, and always remember a spoon. The next thing is we throw out salad so much from the night before. Why not save them, put them in a Tupperware and bring them to lunch for the next day. And if you keep them cold they stay nice and crisp, and they'll be very well enjoyed at lunch at work. And healthy. You know the ingredients in your dressings, you know all of the ingredients in your salad, so it's a very healthy choice. Fruit is a very nice thing to have. You never know what fruit you might want so bring several options. And one of them will attract you that day. Whatever is left over we'll leave for the next day. Snacks are nice to have in between breakfast and lunch, lunch and dinner, to keep our blood sugar stable. And so keeping some sort of nut that you like with you at all times will also help keep the cravings down. Some people like sandwiches for lunch. You can make a healthy sandwich, inexpensive sandwich at night before you pack your lunch for the next day, and please use a sprouted bread so it's not just white bread. And also use meat from Boar's Head or a company like them that has a nitrate free food so you're not taking chemicals into your body unnecessarily. Into our lunch it goes. Take our fork for our salad and there we have it. A healthy inexpensive lunch for work.
