Make Your Own Frozen Lunches
So the holidays are over and if you're anything like me, your wallet is a lot lighter! Today I've got a great tip to save you a little extra green by adding flavor and health to your lunch.
I make my own frozen healthy lunches. This way I know exactly what is inside it, I can season it how I like, and I don't have to worry about insane amounts of sodium! Have you looked at the nutritional information on any of those frozen "diet" meals that you find at the store?
|510mg of sodium?! Thats just for a few bites of stuff to throw on a salad!|
|This one has 440mg for literally 8 bites of pasta.|
My lunches are usually under 400 calories and are jam packed with flavors I love. They cost around $2-3 a meal. Each meal always has a protein, a veggie, a starch, and a fruit, occasionally there is a dairy. Here are just a few of them for you to check out.
I hope this tip can save you some money and some sodium intake. Just freeze the lunch and use it when you need it. Depending on how frozen the lunch is, it cooks in 3 to 6 minutes. Enjoy!!
