weight watchers menu plan leftovers for lunch

I’ve been thinking a lot about the reasons we tell ourselves it’s ok if lunch isn’t healthy. As I mom, I spend a lot of time trying to feed other people nutritious stuff and sometimes I forget to plan for myself.

One easy way I’m learning to combat the lunch-on-the-run mentality is to just cook a little extra at dinner time. You can pack a perfect lunch sized portion as you are cleaning up the dishes at night to just grab and go the next day.
