Now, I don’t have any children so if you are here for ideas on how to pack kid lunches, you may want to move on lol. BUT if you are an adult looking for what to do for your own or your hubby’s lunch to take to work then keep reading!
Both my husband and I work regular jobs during the week and we both bring our lunches. My solution to making lunch packing easy? I make double what we need for dinner and then that’s what we eat for lunch the next day! It isn’t rocket science but it is such a life saver.
I cook 5 nights a week and most recipes make more than enough to feed just the two of us so it’s really a no brainer. Plus, going out to eat or packing two new lunches for the both of us would take more time, cost more money and require more work over all and I am just not about that life at all. (And going out to eat is so unhealthy!)
Every night when I am cleaning up dinner, I just dish the left overs into two reusable containers for us and pop them in the fridge and then they are ready for our lunch boxes in the morning. We both usually add snacks too like granola bars, popcorn, fruit, yogurt etc that I always keep in the house.
If you need help with making consistent dinners so that you can have leftovers, may I suggest taking a look at my list of One Pot Recipes? I am making my way to 100 but there are a lot of super easy and simple recipes you could make and clean up will be a breeze! (Like a crowd favorite – dump and bake ravioli!)
Thanks for catching up!
