Lunch should be simple. Between thinking about health, variety and ease-of-packing, however, midday meals can get surprisingly complicated. Half the time, it seems easier to give up on lunch planning entirely and simply stock up on choices from the frozen-food aisle. Never fear: Your days of poking at unappetizing Salisbury steaks are officially in the past. We’d like to introduce you to the Essential Grocery List For Weekday Lunch Planning.
This is a customizable 10-item list you can add to your regular shopping list, designed to make lunch planning about a thousand times simpler. Ten ingredients is the lunchtime sweet spot – it’s just enough items to give you a wide variety of lunches without overwhelming you with options. Moreover, this list can save you money at the grocery store, since you’ll use each ingredient for multiple meals throughout the week. The Essential Grocery List also guides you through some lunch-planning practicalities, like storage and expiration dates, so you can overcome any hurdles you may meet along the way.
