During my morning scramble I’m rushing to cook breakfast and pack a healthy lunch for my kids. In that hectic time slot my multitasking-parent skills are on overdrive. Once the kids are eating breakfast, I start working on lunch. I don’t necessarily pack the plain old PB & J. Instead I mix and match whatever I have on hand to send my kids off with a balanced array of foods. I think of lunch items as fitting into one of three categories: protein, fruit and vegetables, and whole grains.

I used to be able to convince myself that the money I spent eating out was reasonable, but then my wife and I started tracking our expenses. The results were eye-opening: I spend this much in restaurants? Clearly, a change needed to happen.

It's great to bring leftovers for lunch, but I cringe when I see people reheating their leftovers in a plastic container. Heating plastic containers can release BPA (bisphenol A) into your food. BPA is a chemical that’s a known endocrine disruptor, which could be linked to prostate and breast cancer, infertility, heart disease and diabetes. So to minimize your exposure to BPA, transfer your home-packed lunch to a ceramic bowl or plate before reheating in the microwave.

When it comes to lunch, not much has changed since I was a kid—even at age 34, I’m still envious when a co-worker pulls out a treat that I wish I had in my lunch bag! Whether you’re packing a lunch for the kids or brown-bagging it at work, it’s always nice to include a little treat.
