This week's lunch recap!

One of my new goals will be to eat 18 home made lunches per month - allowing myself one store-bought lunch ($10 or under) per paycheque.  I have also pledged to make tea/lattes either at home or at Tim's/Starbucks/Second cup for this girl.

Here's how this week went:
Monday - Turkey Sandwich, apple, yogurt
Tuesday - Turkey Sandwich, apple, yogurt
Wednesday - Restaurant Lunch ($9) - amazing restaurant called Passione on Yonge St.....yummy Italian pasta on a cold day. 
Thursday - Homemade beef stew, apple, yogurt
Friday - Day off, so I'll make something from scratch.

During the winter I love having a 'hot lunch' at work!  Hence my newly discovered "Slow Cooker Sundays".


  1. I feel like something simple this week. Maybe a sandwich will do it. Or just hummus...

  2. Good job with the lunches. I wish I had that kind of resolve.

  3. You're doing great on sticking to your lunch plan. I always bring my own lunch - weekends are when I cook in bulk a variety of things for the following week and then portion them out and freeze them in lunch containers, then I can just grab it in the morning and heat it up at work.

  4. Mmmmm Beef Stew. I wish I was that disciplined too. I'm trying to develop the habit but I've been taking the easy route for so long that it's tough to change. Still, the more I read blogs like yours, the more motivated I feel to change. Thanks for setting such a good example!

  5. I wish it was easy to say everyday I'll bring my lunch, but the italian place for lunch is incredible, so I've been known to eat out despite having brought my lunch from home.

    Last week I made a very tasty Cream of Cauliflower and Cheddar Cheese soup (healthy too - thank you skim milk and low fat cheese!) for dinners...I highly recommend it.
