Snacks for lunch

This week I fell into an old habit... Instead of eating 3 large meals per day I ate many snacks or smaller meals. While I love eating smaller meals it's really not practical to bring all those containers to work... It also makes me very grateful to have a dishwasher.

In my lunch box there was:

- Thin wheat crackers.
- White grape jelly
- Chive and herb flavored cheese
- Frosted flakes
- Tortilla chips
- Homemade salsa
- Marbled cheddar
- Grape tomatoes
- Carrots
- Small container(s) of left overs (a little bit of chicken, stew, and lasagna)
- Pudding
- Lemon squares
- Apple
- Pear

I'm glad I had a 1L of milk in the fridge at work it made one less thing to bring. Maybe I should also keep a box of cereal at my desk and crackers... it would make a few less things to bring to work.

I have to admit that I cheated on Thursday, I went out for lunch because someone I work with was leaving for another opportunity. I am sad that she is leaving but glad that she is getting a promotion. She was an amazing boss and I will miss her. I ate some of the snacks during the day and ate the rest of the lunch for dinner.

Good luck for next week,
