Brown bag it!!
A recession usually brings out the culinary staple in many!! Which is the ubiquitous Brown Bag Lunch!!
Brown bagging it not only goes easy on your wallet but will probably leave you lighter on the scale as well. In fact, bringing lunch to work puts you in the driver's seat to control what food you eat unlike going to a restaurant where oil is used in excess, probably cooked in reused oil ( a common cost- cutting strategy in restaurants is reusing cooking oil which ups your blood pressure) and not cooked hygienically to boot.
Brown bag lunches don't have to be boring. Here are some tips to make your lunches healthy yet exciting!!
a) Tuna salad with cucumber and tomato
b) Cold pasta salad with Chicken and vegetables
c) Tortilla wrap with chicken or cheese and tomato
d) a bowl of oatmeal with bananas and milk
