Brown-Bagging It

Healthy packed lunchMany of us do not have the opportunity to go home from work during lunchtime. The best way to ensure that your lunch will be healthy and safe – and a lot less expensive than eating out – is by preparing your own and bringing it to work. It’s also portable; you can take your lunch to the break room, outside for a picnic or to a nearby park where you can walk around and fit in some physical activity!

Eating lunch in the parkThe following tips are provided to assist you with your brown-bagging efforts:

  •   Plan your lunches; keep food stuffs on-hand for quick and easily preparation
  •   Make lunches the night before when you have more time; refrigerate if necessary, prior to taking the next day
  • Have containers for soups, sandwiches, salads, fruit, veggies, grains and other foods ; this will allow for more options so your lunches don’t become boring
  • “Spice it up” with gourmet condiments
  • Microwave gives lots of choice flexibility, if you have one at work; if not, explore the possibility of purchasing one, possibly by employees sharing the cost
  • Make sure to keep certain foods cold; if there’s no refrigerator at work, use an insulated lunch bag and cold pack
  • Bon Appetit!
