Pack your Perfect 10. Spend 10 minutes right now and make a list of your 10 favorite portable meal options.  Use this list to craft your lunches every day.  Even packing a PBJ is better than a pre-packaged/frozen lunch, even a healthy one.  The lazy solution: make extra portions of dinner and plan to eat these the next few days for lunch or freeze a few of these to save for later.

Weekend Warrior Winner. I spend my Saturday mornings prepping and organizing food for the week.  I make a meal list, pack food in lunch-sized portions and make all of the special baked items that we need for the week.  By prepping on the weekends, when I have time, I don’t have to think about anything else all week – I just follow the list.  The lazy solution: Pack all lunch options in single-serving containers and freeze.  When you’re ready to take it with you, you don’t have to think about getting it ready. You’ve already done it for yourself.

Packing a Snack Saves Lives. You think I’m kidding.  I can’t make decisions when I’m hungry and being nice seems like too much work.  Save yourself. Next time you’re at the grocery store, pick up a few healthy snack options to keep at work with you.  Then when you hit that 3pm slump, you’ve got good, healthy options to keep you going.  The lazy solution: consider items that are portable and last like pistachios, peanut butter, apples or yogurt and string cheese (I keep them in the fridge at work).

Give Fruit a New Life. This is my genius solution for mushy (aka gross) fruit. Cut up “Last Days” fruit and freeze to make easy smoothies for quick breakfast.  I love smoothies. Love them.  I’ve realized that if I blend anything with ice, it makes me much more likely to want to eat it.  The lazy solution: I freeze everything in single serving options and for an easy protein boost, I add Greek yogurt to my smoothies.

You can do this.  Get yourself a healthier strategy right now and make the lazy (aka efficient, smart, genius) changes today.
