Eating lunch is one of my favorite parts of the day. Packing stuff for lunch, however, is one of my least favorite parts of the day. Deciding what to make and then actually preparing it is such a time-consuming task. If I didn’t love the taste of food so much, I’d opt for the most convenient option and take up Soylent as my main source of nutrition.
I do try, but I’ll admit that my lunch habits aren’t necessarily the best. Every so often, a burst of adulthood surges through my being, and I am great at meal planning. Usually, though, I find myself heating up a frozen Amy’s Mac & Cheese dish (not the most nutritious thing, but so convenient and so damn good) or devouring a hodge-podge of things I threw in my bag before heading out the door. About 35% of the time, I’ll spend out for lunch.
