Packing a Lunch

Not feeling deprived is pretty crucial to maintaining a healthy diet and reaching your health goals.  The times I've felt deprived, I've totally blown my diet. (By the way - when I use the word "diet," I'm not referring to a weight loss program. I'm referring to "what one eats." There are healthy diets, and there are crappy ones. You're on a diet right now, whatever sort it may be).

Anyway.  You have to be prepared.  You have to have healthy food that tastes good on hand at all times.  Otherwise, what will you turn to when your stomach is growling and Aunt Ethel has nothing but fried pork chops and cupcakes in the house?

You may find my examples a little too "healthy" for your tastes. They are a bit on the extreme end, though honestly, the more accustomed you get to a healthy diet, the more you crave simple things like this.  But, you can make lunch more exciting than this particular one.  The important thing is whole grains, fresh vegetables, and fresh fruits.  Forget the stuff that comes in a package.
