I prefer to cook my own meals (bulk cook and portion into freezer bags), but, when I am too rushed, I like to swing by the local grocer in the morning when they put out their markdowns from the deli. They've got lots of great portioned meals low in calories and not too bad in sodium since they're made fresh in-house. Even on clearance, they're at least $1 maybe $2 more than the frozen stuff, but, I think it's worth it to have something pretty fresh and local.

Not all those who wander are lost

I make salads for lunch (prep them all on Sunday). My afternoon snack is 4 crackers (right now the Artesian Sweet Potato Breton crackers), and a light Babybel.

Lean Cuisines. The portion control & sizes are excellent. Just be mindful of the sodium.

I'm a big fan of Greek yogurt with fruit. You can put it together ahead of time, and have it ready to go. I like to use frozen fruit, and put the yogurt in the bottom of a small mason jar, then add the fruit on top while it's still frozen. Screw on the lid (you can get plastic lids) and let it sit overnight and as the fruit thaws, it will release juices. Mix it all together before you eat, and you will have naturally sweetened, fruit flavored yogurt. Add a Tbsp of granola on top after stirring if you want a little crunch.

I like wraps or salads in the spring/summer. I top my salads with a protein (hardboiled egg, chicken, nuts etc), a oil/vinegar dressing & some extra fruit or veg (pear, walnut & bluecheese is good or egg, feta, dried cranberry etc).
Now that it's fall, I'm all about soups. I use my LooneySpoons recipes usually. Make a double batch & freeze whatever I won't use that week. I portion this week's soup into containers straight away.
Snacks are usually veggies & dip (hummus, natural peanut butter, soft cheese) and an afternoon fruit & seed snack. For nights that I work, I carry dried apricots & almonds in my bag to munch on the way home to make sure I skip any fast food urges.

I usually just end up taking leftovers. Since I'm only cooking for me, I usually make a whole recipe 4-6 servings and then put the other servings in containers and freeze/refrigerate the other servings. They make perfect "freezer meals" or lunches to take with me.

We basically made a list with 5 groups: protein, grain, veggies, fruit, and dairy. We have a bunch of single serve items prepped and use 2 oz portion cups for a lot of the items. We choose one from each group for lunch every day.Some examples of the things on the list are below:

Protein: Ham, turkey, pistachios (shelled), peanut butter, boiled eggs
Grains: Wheat tortilla, bagel, whole grain bread, Clif bars, popcorn, pretzels, animal crackers
Veggies: Fresh broccoli, celery, carrot sticks, bell peppers
Fruits: Strawberries (we buy 5lb frozen at Sam's and thaw a cup the night before), grapes, apples, oranges, fruit cups, dried fruits (raisins & cherries so far)
Dairy: Baby Bel cheese, Cow Pals, lowfat yogurt, milk, cottage cheese

We occasionally add a sweet treat, like homemade cookies or Nutella for dipping animal crackers. :)

Soy Yogurt or fruit and nuts are my go-to snacks now that I don't hit the vending machines anymore. I also have some oatmeal cups in my desk drawer that I keep forgetting about. They are a good idea - they're just not my habit (yet).

Hi everyone! Trying to get back on the bandwagon. The weight has definitely creeped up over the past few months. What are your favorite healthy snacks and lunch ideas?

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. ~Audrey Hepburn
