... and in truth, when one opens the door and peers in, it does look kind of empty - but there are no less than 16 frozen homemade lunches in there! I haven't been this nutritionally organized
in a long time ... EVER. Cut me some slack, Man!
I broke up with buying my lunch every day a few months ago mostly because I calculated exactly how much money I was blowing on lunches and I nearly had a stroke. But even before that, I had noticed I was getting sort of sick a lot after eating stuff from the food court. Even the "healthy" stuff - especially any of the bean and grain salads from Cultures. Beans and grains are not something I have difficulty digesting so I don't know what the heck is going on there but it really creeped me out.
Sometimes I will still buy something for lunch, but mostly I bring it. I enjoy not feeling like ass after eating my lunch and saving money is also a nice perk. But the best thing about this experiment has actually been that I feel much, much more healthy and I have better workouts at the end of the day. I probably underestimated not only the fat and calories in the bought lunches but also the chemicals and preservatives. I love knowing exactly what's in the food I eat now.
