We’re teaming up with fellow food bloggers to host a Brown-Bag Challenge, a month-long initiative to eat consciously and save money by packing a lunch each weekday instead of eating out. Join us here and share what you’re eating on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #brownbag.
Thank goodness for freezers and leftovers. The first week has resulted in some healthy and some less than perfect lunches brought from home. My Rubbermaids have been working over time! A few days it was just a can of soup for lunch. If I pack food that needs to be microwaved I use real bowls or plates because of possible leaching. Some days I brought homemade lasagna or roast dinner. Everyday I gave in and bought a zero-waste coffee at Starbucks but not at lunch time. Next week I hope to make my lunches the night before and up the healthiness.
The sandwich artist was very interested in why I was “bothering”. I tried to explain everything in a few words and a few minutes. It’s one action at a time. It’s preventable waste. To me it now feels awful to accept fast food waste.
