Go All-Out for National Brown Bag-It Day
Why buy when you can pack a gourmet lunch and make a bash out of it
Today on The Daily Meal
If you’re like us here at The Daily Meal, you’re pretty busy throughout the week. Forgetting to pack our lunch from home is a very common occurrence here at our office. We cook up a storm during weeknights and then are too tired to pack something or we want a change of pace when it comes to the next day's afternoon delight.
Well, if there was ever a time to kick-start a good habit, its tomorrow. National Brown Bag-It Day is May 25 and we’re fully on board to get the party started in our office. With all the benefits of packing lunch — it's less expensive, a money saver, there's more nutrition control, and more time for you to enjoy your lunch rather than running out — it’s a wonder we don’t pack more often.
Here at The Daily Meal, we’re throwing our buy-it approach out the window — well, we’re trying to at least. Tomorrow and for many more days to come, we’re having bag-it parties to start a healthy and money-saving initiative in our lives.
Want to throw a bag-it party at your office or school? Get inventive and create a theme for your party, like a Mexican fiesta, or summer salads where everyone can swap. Here's an even better idea: Every once and a while, pool together the money that you would have spent on an average afternoon lunch and donate it to a good cause, or even host an after work happy hour.
Here’s a little lunch-packing inspiration — recipes! Enjoy!
