Fast food wants your money!
We as hard working men and women deserve a good lunch in the mid part of our day, to rejuvenate the brain cells and muscles and get us through to quitting time.
Did you notice that I said quitting time! If you didn’t and you don’t consider yourself what I call a working stiff just trying to make a living than you probably do not need to read any farther.
But in the real world the rest of us need to watch the fast food market as they ramp up their push to bad mouth our home made lunches by using negative feelings on us!
You’ve all seen the commercials that have the main group comparing their lunch from somewhere, discussing the value, taste, size, and anything else they can think of. Then they ask their coworker who is sitting alone, what they are eating, and that is where they make you feel like an outcast. Like your lunch is not as good as theirs is.
DON’T FALL FOR THIS TYPE OF ADVERTISING! It’s really not a very reputable way to get someone to try their products in the first place, so don’t fall for it.
There is nothing wrong with bringing your own lunch and saving a ton of money over those who eat out daily.
And some of the food that people do bring in those home made lunches, a lot of times not only tops fast food in taste, but most certainly will top fast food in value, darn near every time. They can’t compete price wise with a home made meal, no how, no way, and they know it.
Just be creative, use thermoses, hot and cold carry jars, along with plenty of reusable plastic bowls and containers and by all means, be creative!
Search the Web for carry lunch ideas, along with ideas of cooking lunch depending on your job.
By all means use anything that your place of employment provides you for lunches, like microwaves, tables, plastic dinnerware, refrigerators, etc. Also, be careful never to contaminate your food, but use tools of the trade as well if you can. Ovens, torches, boilers heaters, chillers, coolers and a.c. units can all be utilized to warm or cool a tasty item so it’s ready at lunch time.
Now do yourself a favor, if you ever afford to buy something that a coworker says they wish they could afford, tell them you could afford it because of the money you saved by bringing your lunch!
Oh just a couple more things, don’t forget the condiments and never forget to pack the silverware! You’d look kinda silly drinking your home made stew or eating chocolate pudding with your finger!
