While you’re packing your kids lunch for school, go ahead and pack yourself one too!

It’s safe to say that we spend a great deal of our money on fast foods and eating out. If you’re on your lunch break and you decide to hop in the car and run down the street to grab a quick bite to eat; not only are you spending money on your food, but you’re using more gas to do that as well.

  When you factor in the time it takes to get from point A to B, possible traffic (depending on how far you’re going), the time it takes to stand in line and wait on your food  then get back to work…how much time do you have left? Even if you decide to walk to the corner, that’s still valuable time you could use to enjoy your food and exhale from the stress (or boredom) of work!

Are you really trusting your health to the fast food industry? If you’re making sure your children are well fed and have the proper nutrition, why not do the same for yourself?

Save gas, time, and hassle! This alternative will give you more variety anyway!

Take control of your life AND your lunch. It’s the better health choice anyway!
