I thought that I would share both a lunch box idea and a money saving tip with you. I have mentioned many times that I love to shop at Aldi. I found this Artisan Salad for only $2. When I see this in the larger box stores it is between $6-7.
This salad is so fresh. I simply tear it apart with my fingers and use my salad spinner to wash and dry it. I get this huge bowl of salad from that tiny little box.
This is enough salad to make 4 nice size salads for my lunch. I also cut up broccoli in small bite size portions and kept them in a different container.
I boiled some eggs for my salads for the week.
I put salad, broccoli, cheddar cheese and chopped egg into this bowl.
I grilled California Burgers to take with my salad each day. However, when I was coming back in the house a funny thing happened. I can laugh now but at the time I was furious. Mike had leaned a ladder against the kitchen cabinet and when I came in carrying the hot burgers from the back deck the ladder fell and was about to land on my head. I dropped all but 3 of the burgers. The hounds were so happy. LOL
I have enough burgers for three lunches instead of the entire week as I had planned.
I chopped the burger and put it into its own container so that I can heat it once I get to work. Then I will add it to the salad.
I found some Creamy Garlic Ceaser salad dressing at Aldi that is only 1 carb per serving. I put that in its own container to dip while eating. The lunch broke down like this.
- california turkey burgers-2
- salad dressing- 4
This comes to 11 for the meal. I might have a low carb yogurt for another 3 if I feel the need for something sweet.
