Not only am I planning on bringing my lunch to school everyday, I am also bringing all snacks - if I don't bring it, I don't eat it!!

Yesterday I brought 1/4 of a sub sandwich and celery sticks

Today I brought the same plus cucumber slices with HM TIsland dressing.

Coffee - I make every morning at work!!

Thanks MM for starting this thread! I brought my lunch the last few days, today I had homemade chicken greek pasta salad. I'll be having it tomorrow as well, seeing as how I made a huge batch and it's only me eating it! I had 2 clementines and some pretzels today as well.

I, too, have brought lunch every work day of this new year thus far. And as a creature of habit, it was the same thing:

~organic spinach and greens mix
~grilled chicken (I marinate a bunch, cook it up, chop it up, and put in the freezer)
~a little shredded cheddar cheese
~some cucumber chunks
~a bit of Salad Toppins
all topped with an low fat asian dressing

and a diet soda on the side

yummo!

We just returned to work on January 5 :p So yesterday I had leftover chicken and rice. Today, I didn't have any lunch (was running late this morning and forgot it at home - then injured myself at home on way to work and lunch was no where on my brain as I was dealing with bloody knees lol)

Tomorrow is Friday so for lunch I am going to feel young at heart and have a good ol' peanutbutter and jelly sandwich! lol I don't care how old I get, I still enjoy a good old PB & J from time to time :) I'll prolly take some cucumber slices and not sure what else yet :p And I drink water when I'm at work :)

Oh, I'm in for this challenge. I eat the same sandwich, chips, and pop from home every day for lunch. Hopefully when my schedule slows down and I don't have to shop while I'm eating lunch, then I can take more leftovers and relax in the break room. We'll see!

I love this challenge, as it's not really a challenge for me. It's what it is, and I'm happy to report that I've convinced my co-worker how much money she saves by not eating out!

I brought my breakfast and lunch to work today. For breakfast I had half of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and coffee from home. For lunch I had some leftover Spaghetti casserole. I also brought some pretzels for my afternoon crunchy/salty snack and 2 Ghirardelli chocolate squares. I also brought some tea from home to drink this afternoon.

Let's see, on 1/7, I ate my lunch for breakfast. I didn't feel like oatmeal, I was at work so my choices were limited, and I had a meeting. So I nuked my lunch for breakfast (meatball stew, lol!). Then I ate out on Friday.

Yesterday and today (January 10 & 11) I had my same salad from home.

I brought spaghetti casserole for lunch today, but we ended up having a team lunch which was provided for us, so I'll be having my spaghetti casserole tomorrow.

So far so good for Monday and Tuesday for me. I ate a frozen dinner that I had previously brought and was conveniently in the freezer at work just waiting to be eaten. I also had some salad.

Tomorrow I plan on taking the rest of my Chef Boyardee Italian Sausage Ravioli and some salad. I had half the can for dinner tonight and half will be lunch tomorrow. It was actually pretty good.
