Favorite Foods Lately...

I have been in a rut when it comes to packing my lunch lately, but I love this rut! 

Joseph and I have been trying to save money before he starts dental school, and part of that is going out to eat less. Through trial and error, I have figured out that Wal-Mart is the place to go for good, cheap produce! They have everything I need in one place, and it is definitely cheaper than Publix (but it's SO pretty:))) - - I obviously have a problem with Publix. Hehe. Every time I go there, I buy stuff that wasn't on my list just because all the stuff looks pretty and delicious. At Wal-Mart, I can get down to business. 

So my favorite yummy lunch to make has been salad. And here's what I put in it...

Spring Mix
1/4 Cucumber
1 Avocado
1 Roma Tomato
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (what I had in my fridge at the time)
Rotisserie Chicken (cut up -- I only use the white meat for salads)
Chipotle Ranch Yogurt dressing from Wal-Mart (only 25 calories per serving!) 

I think I have had this for lunch all week this past week. It really is so much cheaper than eating out, especially eating out healthily (a salad this good at Newk's costs about $10 or $12). A lot of times when I pack my lunch, I don't end up eating it, and go out anyway, but not with this salad. 

Question of the Weekend: 

- What is your favorite thing to pack in your lunch? Why?

Have a great weekend, everyone!
