Lunch for the Week

The saying is that "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day", but lunch is pretty important too. A solid lunch will get you through those tough afternoon hours at the office without snacking on the goodies lying around, and prepare your body for your post-work workout.

For those of us trying to economize, packing your own lunch is the way to go. But who has time to prepare lunch every morning? The solution is simple: prepare your lunch for the week on Sunday night.

Lemon-steamed chicken breast is a wonderful way to go because the chicken soaks up the aroma of whatever you put with it, and it will keep in the refrigerator for the week! Chicken is a lean protein that will keep you feeling fuller longer. Pair it with broccoli for anti-cancer fighting nutrients, fiber, and calcium, or with green beans and zucchini for a twist. Best part is you can buy everything you need for the week for under $10!

When I worked, I used to prepare the night before.
