Can you imagine spending 15 to 20 dollars on lunch a week and some spend this daily. Well, stop imagining because that is what many people are doing today. Not many are taking lunches to work and we are suffering the consequences.

Everyone wants convenience but with convenience comes a price that may be very costly. The fast food lunches you are consuming are high in salt, fat and calories. How productive are you at work after eating a fast food meal for lunch? And not only the feeling but the cost will also add up month after month. With todays economy we should be looking for ways to save money and in turn living healthier lives.

It is not difficult to bring your own lunch to work. It may take some planning and preparation time but the results you will have on your health and wallet are worth the extra time. Some valuable food choices you may consider are whole grain breads, pitas and wraps, vegetables, eggs, tuna, cheese, salmon and lean meats. The days of the boring sandwiches are long gone.

Try making yourself a delicious and nutritious sandwich with grilled chicken, lettuce, light ranch dressing in a whole grain pita. Perhaps a lettuce wrap is what you are craving, try them with salmon and light Asian dressing for a twist to the old sandwich routine. Leftovers make great lunches too. Try some tuna fish on whole grain bread with cucumbers and lettuce.  My favorite is hummus with veggies, but the possibilities are endless. Lets not forget to bring along fresh fruits and vegetables to make your lunch a truly nutritious one.

With some thought and planning, nutritious and inexpensive lunches are possible. Save your wallet and your waistline. Say good-bye to fast food and say hello to a wonderful and healthier you.
