Back to work

So what is my husband packing for lunch tomorrow?

He'll start the day with his usual, one sausage and one full egg. He eats this very early in the morning, which is why he will pack an extra snack from what you might pack.

When we pick snacks, we try to keep the carb count as close to or under 12 carbs. So if the package says 1 serving is 20 carbs, you can cut the serving in half for 10 carbs.

This is where the Tupperware snack cups come in handy. They pack a volume of one cup, and are wide instead of high, so they don't take as much room in a lunch bag.

The lunch bag Nate uses is insulated and has two zippered sections. We use one of those re freezable ice packs to keep things cold.

Into the lunch bag goes

1. a boiled egg - just in case he feels the need for quick protein. I know this goes against everything that we're told by doctors etc, but dh's cholesterol level is fine.

2. a South Beach Oatmeal and Raisin bar - they have a lower carb count than the more delicious Peanut butter ones.

3. Twelve (count them, don't estimate) roasted almonds. They can not be honey roasted. Try to get them unsalted.

4. Lettuce salad with Tyson pre-cooked chicken strips. Not breaded. A separate midge Tupperware to hold 2 tbs of low carb salad dressing. (Nate esp likes Wishbone House Italian , 3 carbs for 2 tbs.)

5. 16 slices of Corando pepperoni
