Whole Lotta Lunch

Welcome to  “Whole Lotta Lunch,” where I share “what I packed for lunch each week.” You may be wondering where this super cool name came from.  Is it – because being this organized makes me feel like a bad-ass rockstar? Hecksya.


I grocery shop on Saturdays and make lunches for the upcoming week on Sundays. My decision-making capacity decreases as the week progresses, so I feel better planning ahead to put healthy things into my body.
