March 11, 2010 - Brown Bag Lunch

I slept in this morning. I had enough time to make Scottish oatmeal, with apple sauce, plain almond milk and a teaspoon of brown sugar. Michael helped me pack my lunch and I went on my merry way. Lunch was microwaved poached eggs, red river multi-grain toast, tomato, green pepper and spinach sandwich. It was simple and delicious.

March 10, 2010 - Brown Bag Lunch

My dinner the other night turned out not to be vegetarian. I ended up asking Michael to fry up some extra hot Italian sausage to add to the Jambalaya. In my attempt not to eat “store bought meat” on a regular basis I figured that I could pick out the sausage. I ended up eating a few pieces within the dish and it tasted awesome. If I can figure out who can lead me to a spicy moose meat sausage source I will be a happy Cree woman. I had enough for lunch yesterday.

My Brown Bag Challenge

Brown Bag Lunch = more money to savings account

I need to stop eating out! 3 or 4 times a week my co-worker and I go out for lunch. Usually we stick to healthier options like salads, sandwiches, soups and sushi. Sometimes I will indulge with mall Thai food (Coconut curry). From March 10 to April 10 I will not go out for lunch. I will splurge on eating out once a weekend. This is my challenge to manage my time in the evenings to prepare nutritious foods for dinner to bring as a left-over lunch. I am approximately spending $30-50 dollars a week eating out. If I can curb this habit for one month = more to savings for a future trip/vacation (not sure where to yet).
Today for dinner I am making a vegetarian jambalaya. I will let you know how it turns out.
