This will change your lunch takeout life!

So we still don't have students in the building on Fridays, which means like usual we fill it up with meetings. So today, I knew I wanted to bust out for take out and needed to get in some quality veggies.

I've been super lazy with my meal planning lately and "veggies most" goal is suffering.

So today I knew I wanted a Pick 2 from Panera because I love their ingredients and I had a 20% off reward because I just might go there a lot.

But I recently realized that in the "customize" section of the app - you can add kinds of free things! I often use it to add almond milk to my coffee - but today I used it to ADD

  • Spinach
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Mixed Greens
  • Cucumbers

to my 1/2 BBQ salad. It was so bulky and amazing! And NO extra charge!

So next time you are thinking you want to stop by for takeout, use the Panera app to order something extra yummy and good for you instead of the traditional drive thru.

Customizing this was just so easy! I usually pair this with French Onion Soup and a hunk of bread. Today it was so amazing!

Good take out doesn't have to derail your nutrition. Remember our body is literally made of what we feed it. And today mine is full of extra veggies!

Keep it Simple

by Holly Thompson, January 24, 2021

If you know anything about me, you know that I value convenience. I like the mundane work done for me so I can focus on things that keep me excited, my mind engaged, and happy. I also know that I tend to simply not do those tasks unless it's absolutely necessary. Such as laundry. I will throw in a load when I am out of underwear and leave it in a pile for at least a week - digging through the laundry basket to find what I'm looking for each morning. At some point, I remind myself that I will save time if I simply take the few minutes to actually put it away.  I always glad when I finally get to it, and I always make it more bearable by listening to an audiobook or podcast, but this cycle repeats itself every dang time. Someday my dream is that I can make my kids do it for me. haha.

But that brings me to my point about valuing convenience. I tend to sign up for and spend money on things that make my life easier and I'm continuing to add more.
