(March 10, 2015) – Many of us buy lunch each day at school or at work. We think it’s the easiest option because we’re always in such a rush. But if you set aside 10 minutes the night before or the morning of, you’ll find that there are many benefits to packing your own lunch.

First of all, it’s typically a lot cheaper for you to buy the food items at the grocery store and make it yourself as opposed to someone else making it for you. Secondly, it’s easier to eat healthy when you control what ingredients go into your meal.

So at least for today, celebrate this holiday and pack your lunch!
