“Mom! Where’s my lunch?” The scramble starts the minute the alarm clock alerted. Whether you are a working mom or a stay at home mom, your day crowds at the starting gates and jets forward as fast as a quarter horse at the Kentucky Derby. As you are racing to take the kids to school, you throw a few prepackaged goodies in a paper sack and call it lunch. You promise yourself that tomorrow you will pack a better one.
Starting today say goodbye to the starting gates and hello time! All you need is a little time over the weekend to plan your week strategically. First, you want to prepare all your sandwiches ahead of time and freeze them. This will save you so much time each day! Start by making a whole loaf of sandwiches and store them in the freezer. Each morning, all you have to do is gather the goodies and throw them into a lunch sack. For a well-balanced lunch, pack one sandwich, a washed apple, crackers with pre-sliced cheese, bottled water, and a napkin. Viola! You have created a healthy lunch in minutes!
Being on the go is a part of a working mom’s life but remember you don’t need to feel like you are waiting to bolt through the starting gates each morning. With a little preplanning, you can glide into your morning with the added comfort of knowing that one of your many daily tasks is already completed. Now it’s time to plan for dinner!
