Every week on Sunday, I make a big batch of something for lunch all week. I add to this a veggie of some sort (carrots & fat free ranch dressing, a cucumber, etc) and a snack that is around 100 calories (100 cal pack of chips/cookies, homemade cookies, trail mix, etc).

I package up the entire lunch (in re-usable containers!) and then the night before, or even morning of if I forget the night before, I can just grab all of the components to my breakfast, lunch and snacks and go!

Last week for lunch I made a delicious concoction: asparagus rolled up in turkey with strawberry jelly & gorgonzola crumbles. I had 3 of these each day, but since they were so low in calories, I also had a couple of club crackers (yum!) and Alouette/garlic herb cheese spread.

I adapted this from Au Bon Pain's Perfect Portions. They use cranberry chutney, but I just used strawberry jelly since that's what I have.

Spreading on the strawberry jelly.

The finished rollups. Yum.

My crackers in their containers.

All in all, this lunch was about 300 calories. And it was super filling!
