Bring your lunch… Eat theFood! I’ll never get tired of that clip from Napoleon Dynamite… Okay sorry, back to my point.
Talking your lunch to work or school is not only better on the wallet (you will save from $1,000-$2,000 per year!), it’s better on your waistline and the environment.

Three good tips I’ll pass along from my experience are:
Don’t forget to bring healthy snacks, too, like natural almonds, Greek yogurt, whole fruits, crackers and hummus. That will hopefully keep you from hitting the vending machine!
