As a work at home mom, I know that things can be pretty hectic somedays. You are balancing work, life, parenthood, and the home all the time. Your schedule likely changes from day to day – due to errands, doctors appointments, cleaning, work load, etc etc.
The list of responsibilities for WAHMs really goes on and on…
Because of this, we may find we don’t have to time to sit down and have a healthy lunch. Maybe we microwave something fast before heading out to run errands. Or, you grab something in the drive-thru while you are out.
If you want to do better about how you fuel your body, there are some tips I’ve discovered that makes healthy lunches easier. The keys are planning and preparation, since you never know how your day of a WAHM will go!
4 Ways to Make Healthy Lunches a Breeze
1. Plan your meals for the entire week. Ideally, you should do this when you are meal planning breakfasts and dinners. Come up with 2-3 lunches, so you have less to prepare – and less options when it comes to eating healthy during your lunch break!
2. Keep your lunches simple. No one wants to spend an hour in the kitchen, preparing lunch. Especially not busy work at home moms! Simple lunches that are healthy and filling are essential to prevent those less healthy convenient meals.
3. Prepare your lunch in advance. Make it part of your nightly routine to create your lunch for the following day. You can do this at night, after the children are in bed. Knowing you have a lunch ready in the fridge makes it easy to stick to eating nutritious meals.
4. Use the Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE Salad & Snack Set. This is Rubbermaid’s pristine 100% leak-proof food storage container and it makes meal prep super easy, even if you are eating on the go. I love that comes with customizable insert trays and dividers, making it easy to have my lunches and snacks ready for a busy day.
And, the Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE Salad & Snack Set is 100% Leak-Proof Guaranteed*, thanks to the airtight latches that keep the food storage container tightly sealed. I don’t like messes in my car, so this is great for when I need to take my lunch with me on a day of errands.
*Not applicable to internal compartments created by inserts.
I don’t have to worry about what I pack in the Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE Salad & Snack Set either. The durable material that makes up this food prep container is both stain and odor free. Once it’s been used, the set can be washed in the dishwasher.
It’s also BPA free and microwave safe on days I need to heat up my lunch.
